Club Quarters provides member organizations and their guests with full service hotels in prime city locations in the US and UK. There are seventeen locations in total, six in New York City, seven in other major US Cities and four in London, providing member organizations with the convenience of being in a prime city location, club-like environment and significant savings. Club Quarters offer a range of accommodations including four room types, apartments for extended stays, conference and board rooms and many unique venues for dining and events. Member organizations include Fortune 500 corporations, smaller companies, government agencies, universities and not-for profit organizations. Members and guests all benefit from the Gold Rewards program entitling them to many onsite benefits as well as savings for both business and leisure travel. Hotel rooms are generally reserved for members, however non-members may book rooms and other hotel facilities on weekends/holidays and periods when the hotels are not being used by members.

Club Quarters was founded by American business executive, Ralph Bahna, who opened the first Club Quarters on West 45th Street in midtown Manhattan in 1994.[1] Bahna sought to open his hotels near major corporate and financial centers.[1] He designed the chain's business model to give priority to business travelers whose companies and organizations joined Club Quarters as members.[1] In a 2012 interview with the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, Bahna stated that his goal for his hotels was "to have the best locations, be full service, charge less, and still make a big profit."[1]
