MIAMI, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — sbe, a global lifestyle hospitality company, is taking luxury to the next level by collaborating with The Lincoln Motor Company to offer guests the opportunity to experience the Lincoln Navigator and Continental during their stay at sbe properties across the United States.
Both Lincoln and sbe are dedicated to providing custom experiences for clients through personalized services and exceptional amenities, making the relationship mutually beneficial.
“At sbe, we take hospitality one step further by creating destinations and curating memorable moments through our award-winning culinary and entertainment experiences. This strategic brand partnership with Lincoln is one of many to come in 2018 as we continue to collaborate with forward-thinking and like-minded companies,” says Sam Nazarian, founder and CEO of sbe.
Michele Caniato, chief brand officer, sbe, adds: “We’re extremely proud to be working with Lincoln as our official automotive partner in the U.S. Lincoln is renowned for its commitment to design, innovation and technology – values that are shared by sbe and align completely with the expectations our guests have when they stay with us.”
Guests will have access to Lincoln Black Label Navigators and Continentals at eight sbe properties: SLS Beverly Hills, SLS Brickell, SLS South Beach, Delano South Beach, Mondrian Los Angeles, Hudson Hotel and the soon-to-open SLS LUX Brickell and Hyde Hotel and Residences Midtown in Miami.
At Delano South Beach and SLS South Beach, guests can indulge in “The Suite Life by sbe,” a personalized luxury program that offers best-in-class accommodations, VIP access to more than 20 culinary and entertainment venues, a yacht cruise as well as priority access to Lincoln house cars.
“At Lincoln, we are focused on creating personalized experiences. We know sbe is at the forefront of hospitality and is constantly raising the bar on lifestyle, which makes this collaboration the perfect next step for us,” says John Emmert, group marketing manager for The Lincoln Motor Company.
Hospitality is an ideal platform to raise awareness of the brand. By forming strategic alliances with prestigious hotels in key luxury markets – like sbe – Lincoln is able to introduce its vehicles to potential new clients and also familiarize them with its emphasis on warm, human, personalized experiences.
“Our clients value new experiences,” says Emmert. “They enjoy travel and fine dining. Lincoln’s engagement in the hospitality space allows us to work with others who share that passion of connecting with clients as we do.”
