We’re pioneering a new kind of stay.

Mint House combines the classic comfort of home and the modern luxury of a hotel, giving guests all the perks and none of the tradeoffs. We’ve ditched losable key cards, long lines, room service and other relics for the things we miss when we travel—kitchens, groceries, workout routines, and the space to spread out. Every part of the Mint House experience is making your stay personal, predictable and effortless. Our presence spans major U.S. cities like New York, Miami, and Nashville. #staymint
