When you’re travelling for work or pleasure, you want to stay in an accommodating place. Hotels are trying to keep up with the every-changing wants and desires of the general public by updating their looks and experiences on an ongoing basis. By keeping up with trends, hotel owners and managers have a better time providing what their guests expect from their stay. Check out the current hotel design trends so that you’ll know what to expect the next time you spend time away from home.
Hotel guests don’t want to stay in a one-size-fits-all hotel. Instead, they want a personalized experience that will make them feel attended to and appreciated. When people travel, the hotel itself is just as much a part of the overall experience as the destination itself. The amenities and services that hotels continue to be welcoming, but now many hotels are also creating areas that allow guests to truly be themselves. Designated “selfie” zones help guests engage with their experiences and their social media in a more interactive way. It’s a great activity for the guests and for hotel promotion.
Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you want it to feel that way. A current design trend, especially in extend-stay hotels, is to put the comforts and conveniences of home in the hotel room. Hotel suites that have seating areas and cooktops incorporate those cozy elements of being at home into the hotel.
Many general contracting professionals have seen a complete overhaul to hotel lobbies. They are no longer the strictly professional intake point for guests. Now, they are extensions of your hotel room with lounge areas and places specifically dedicated to professionals. Instead of just a few chairs and a desk for the concierge, you’ll see more couches, desks, charging stations, and even coffee bars.
Hotels are becoming more environmentally conscious and expressing that through design updates. The next time you stay at a hotel, you’ll probably notice greater integration of sustainable elements like recycled wood, natural light, and even repurposed furniture. Lighting is being switched to LED options and motion-sensing lights that automatically turn off when people aren’t using the space.
