Generator is on a journey. Named by Fast Company in the top 50 Most Innovative Global Companies, Generator is one of the world’s leading shared-accommodation and lifestyle brands, earning popularity through its blend of high design, budget-friendly room offerings, and experience-led social environments.

Properties are found in the most central locations in 17 destinations across Europe and the U.S. including Madrid, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Miami and Washington D.C. The acquisition of award-winning Freehand Hotels expanded the brand’s U.S. footprint to four more properties and three additional cities: New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles to a total of 19 properties worldwide.
