Grubhub is partnering with Sonesta.

Grubhub is expanding its initiative to bring off-premises dining options to customers staying at hotels.

The on-demand delivery provider, which has previously entered partnerships with Homewood Suites hotels across the U.S. as well as Resorts World Las Vegas, is now offering mobile ordering and delivery services to more than 120 Sonesta Extended Stay Suites and Simply Suites hotels across the country.

With this partnership, guests at Sonesta ES Suites and Sonesta Simply Suites will have access to Grubhub's network of more than 365,000 restaurants and convenience offerings. Customers will be able to order on Grubhub via geolocation and QR codes around each property that take them directly to the Grubhub marketplace.

The hotel location and courier drop-off instructions will automatically populate at checkout.

"We're redefining the dining experience for hotel guests by making it easier than ever to bring more dining options and convenience right to guests' doors no matter where their travels take them," said Eric Ferguson, COO at Grubhub. "With Sonesta, we're excited to help support a dining need at these properties and play a role in keeping guests fed, happy and energized."

"Sonesta ES Suites and Simply Suites apartment-styled accommodations provide guests with a fully equipped kitchen, giving them a sense of normalcy and a home away from home," said Elizabeth Harlow, chief brand officer at Sonesta. "We are excited to be partnering with Grubhub to provide our guests with easy access to mobile ordering and delivery services which will enhance our extended stay hotel experience."

The Grubhub partnership is now available at all participating Sonesta ES Suites and Simply Suites hotels across the U.S. Customers that affiliate with their hotel will receive two free months of the Grubhub+ loyalty program.
