Home Suite Hotels is a brand of lifestyle hotels and suites for the independent traveller, offering a tailored, personalised environment for both business and leisure guests. It opened its flagship properties Home Suite Hotels Bristol in Johannesburg in late 2019 and Home Suites The Quarter in Cape Town in December 2020. And, despite the challenges that this timing has presented, they are proud to now announce the opening of two new premises later this year, in Sandton and Sea Point.
Founder Gidon Novick believes that the future of hospitality will include a demand for establishments that provide a trendy, connected and curated customer experience.
Founder Gidon Novick believes that the future of hospitality will include a demand for establishments that provide a trendy, connected and curated customer experience. He says, “A lot of our guests are CEOs, industry disruptors and professionals who don’t want that big hotel experience. They feel safer at our premises, in terms of location and health. And, due to the generous size of our rooms, suites can be booked out for longer stays for up to 30 days, making it the perfect escape to enjoy some downtime while still being close to all the action and amenities a big city has to offer.”
As well as boasting locations close to each cities’ action hubs, the properties provide all modern amenities as well as extras called “Suite Spots”. Novick explains that these include convenient and personalised perks – such as one-time registration, contactless check-in, admin-free access protocols, 24-hour security, on-site baristas, Netflix and DSTV, home-cooked meals, a pillow menu and a high-end mattress selection.
He adds, “High-speed fiber is also no longer a luxury and so we ensure that all areas have superb coverage, whether the CEO wishes to work from the room, a board room or even next to the rooftop pool.”
“It’s this kind of personalised, flexible environment that we believe will drive the future of hospitality.”
As we all start to adjust to what a post-pandemic world might look like, Novick says Home Suite Hotels has hit the sweet spot with their hyper-personalised offering; “Guests can go downstairs to the chef and get a speciality cooked meal or request something special from the in-house barista. It’s this kind of personalised, flexible environment that we believe will drive the future of hospitality.”
He adds, “We couldn’t be more optimistic about our branded boutique offering to cater to this market.”
