A Fresh Look at Hospitality Design Trends


Clean, refreshing design standards are trending in the upcoming year as hotels begin to find different ways to integrate innovative technology into their properties. The standard is being tested and innovations are being created with the intention of appeasing both millennials and the already-established baby boomer generation. According to Robert Neal, principal at architecture, design, and planning firm Cooper Carry, each area of the hotel is experiencing its own design renaissance. He talked with LODGING about three spaces and the design trends that will rule them in 2017. Neal was quick to add, however, that despite varying ages and exposures to high-tech design, there is one factor that remains timeless: “The people who I talk to, and the people who I travel with, really do just appreciate something that’s unique.”
