NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewsCentre/ — sbe, the leading international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning brands, today announced the continued expansion of its collaboration with the luxury automotive brand Lincoln. sbe guests will continue to have the opportunity to experience the Lincoln Navigator and Lincoln Aviator at select properties across the U.S. and, for the first time, at the SLS Cancun in Mexico. The longstanding alliance, which continues to be a part of the amenity program at all majority sbe properties, constitutes cultural activations, product launches, exclusive content and, most importantly, elevated brand experiences for sbe guests. The introduction of Lincoln to SLS Cancun will further extend both brands’ commitment to providing uplifting experiences to guests on and off property.
As a part of the renewal, sbe will continue to offer guests access to Lincoln’s thoughtfully designed vehicles at SLS Beverly Hills, SLS Brickell, SLS South Beach, Delano South Beach, Mondrian Los Angeles, Hudson Hotel, SLS LUX Brickell, Hyde Hotel and Residences Midtown in Miami, and SLS Cancun.

sbe Chief Brand Officer Michele Caniato said, "We are extremely happy to be coming together once again to expand the availability of Lincoln’s world-class vehicles to sbe properties across the U.S. and to introduce them to our guests at SLS Cancun. Lincoln has been an exceptional partner of sbe for several years, sharing our commitment to quality and luxury, and even more importantly, being fully immersed in our property programming. With live concerts, unique cultural experiences, and surprise-and-delight events, our partnership represents an extension of the memorable and personalized lifestyle hospitality experiences that sbe extends to its guests. Despite such global and industry-wide uncertainty, sbe is proud to charge forward and continue to create premier offerings for customers throughout our entire brand portfolio."
