We set out in 2009 to give people a special way to experience our favourite cities. onefinestay is a hospitality brand like no other – offering an unprecedented level of service for stays in the finest homes.
We seek out the best homes, looking for space, character and comfort, so you can experience them. We know what counts when you’re travelling – a friendly face to meet you, beds made with pristine sheets, the towels and toiletries taken care of to our exacting standards. And we know that you want space and freedom to create your own experiences. So we’re available 24/7 if you need us, but we step back when you don’t.
In April 2016, we became part of the AccorHotels family, joining luxury brands like Fairmont Raffles and Sofitel. Today we have over 2,500 homes in London, Paris, Rome, New York, Los Angeles and Miami. And, supported by the world’s leading hotel operator, we’re bringing our renowned hospitality to the greatest cities around the globe.
How it all began
Sometimes it’s the things you can’t see that matter most.
The inspiration for onefinestay came to Greg one evening in 2009, just after a trip to Italy. His walk home from work took him through residential Mayfair. Everything was ordered and familiar, but something was wrong, something was missing. Then it hit him: all the lights were off. There was no one home.
Those who can travel, do. Homes in the hearts of cities are often empty. Greg’s own place had been sitting unloved while he was discovering the cobbled streets of Pisa, where he’d returned each evening to a dreary airport hotel. Greg looked at those pristine Mayfair homes and realised he was looking at the antidote to soulless travel – and to empty city centres.
We started onefinestay to give people a new way to experience a place. Handmade hospitality, for stays in the finest homes. And it begins with our members. They hold the key, not just to their own front doors, but to something much bigger. A new era of hospitality.
