Lobbies envisioned as dynamic multi-use spaces. With the new business traveling trend, hotel lobbies should provide a multi-use space for casual as well as formal talks, working on laptops, plugging in various devices. This means a simple sofa-coffee table arrangement won’t cut it. Creative space segmentation is necessary, providing both intimate and social zones, as well as furniture delivering comfort and functionality. More extravagant entrance features in today’s emerging hotel market include large green walls, indoor waterfalls, large chandeliers and multimedia stations.
Not Just a Restaurant, But a Destination in Itself. Few hotel restaurants still base their appeal strictly on “practicability”. Cooking is an art and so should be the “exhibition space”. We’ve seen more and more hotel restaurants turned into memorable spaces through design. Themes are highly recommended, pushing creativity to new heights and turning each venue into a destination in itself.
Focus on Local Art. It is a real shame that modern architecture usually distances itself from local origins. Sometimes we look at a house on Freshome and its design tells us nothing of its location. Luckily, more and more hotel owners realize that adding local art in their design scheme will improve guests’ perception of the place and create a genuine experience. From small sculptures and photography to large-scale installations, integrating an art project into the image of the hotel could be an easy way to success.
Technology Overload. Not everyone is looking for a hi-tech accommodation away from home. On the contrary, people tend to disconnect during holiday time. But more and more hotels focus on keeping guests “plugged in” at all costs. Certainly a good way to go when it comes to business tourism, a technology-friendly room encourages work-flow and in the long run, the guests’ fidelity. New hotels offer the possibility of adjusting lighting, air conditioning and even window blinds through smartphones, which often turns out to be a good business approach. Another trend is placing PC tablets at check-in for printing boarding passes, as well as for ensuring other self-helping processes requiring online connection.
