While many of our guests travel for business or for vacations, many others are away from home to seek medical care. Our hotels can be found in big cities and small towns around the US, and many times, they are convenient to area hospitals. Traveling for medical reasons can be tiring and costly for patients, which is where organizations like Joe’s House step in to help.
Joe’s House is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization that was created by Ann W Calahan in memory of her late husband Joe. Joe battled cancer for six years, having treatment in Texas and New York. Finding a suitable place to stay was a challenge and after Joe’s death in 1997 Ann vowed to find a way to help others in the same situation. In 2003 Joe’s House website launched and fulfilled that promise. Every day more than 3,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. Many must travel to cancer centers specializing in their particular treatment needs. Combined with the millions who are already fighting this disease, it means tens of thousands of cancer patients every day throughout the United States are looking for a suitable place to stay.
Joe’s House mission is to centralize the various lodging options that cater to patients and to streamline the reservations process. At Sonesta, we are proud to have our hotels included as Joe’s House options, offering discounted rates to patients in cities like Atlanta and Houston. Hotels available on the Joe’s House platform include Sonesta ES Suites Atlanta Perimeter Center North, Sonesta ES Suites Atlanta Kennesaw Town Center, Sonesta Select Atlanta Cumberland Galleria, Sonesta Simply Suites Houston Galleria, and Sonesta ES Suites Houston Galleria.
