With a huge demographic of close to 80 million people, hotel developers are gearing their new hotels to the Millennial generation of 18 to 34 year old's. They are no longer just selling rooms, but are now selling curated experiences. Millennials prefer spending time in well designed hotel communal spaces with high speed WiFi, music, and a cool vibe. I'll share a few new "Millennial-centric" hotels which caught my eye like Manhattan's Ace Hotel above.
Dutch owned Citizen M Hotels opened this great looking hotel in New York's Times Square.
Citizen M's lobby is packed with guests doing what they do best,..."connecting."
Love the color scheme of the Citizen M's cocktail lounge.
The Even Hotel in New York City is a wellness focused facility with a sleek and cool vibe. Check out the Acacia Wood tables mixed with modern style furniture in the lobby. Wesco Fabrics carries a large assortment of these tables.
There has been a great deal of buzz about Denver's Art Hotel next to the Denver Art Museum downtown. The view out of this guestroom overlooks the Michael Graves designed Denver Library.
The Art Hotel's busy terrace as seen from the rooftop.
Guadalupe Cantu with Davis Partnerships Architects designed the Art Hotel at the top. Cantu was formerly a senior architect with Studio Daniel Libeskind which designed the Frederick C. Hamilton addition to the Denver Art Museum shown below.
Aloft Hotels are testing robots for delivering snacks to guestrooms in their Cupertino California hotel. Their property in Santa Clara California features voice-activated rooms. Being in the Silicon Valley area I guess we should not be surprised by any of this!
Hilton's Andaz Hotel in San Diego features local artists to give the space a vibrant and authentic vibe.
Marriott's Moxie hotel caters to what they call "fun hunters." This is their new property in Tempe Arizona.
Laguna Beach has always held a special place in my heart as we traveled there often when we had a Wesco Fabrics' warehouse in Irvine. The new Laguna Beach House Hotel has a super cool beachy vibe perfect for the area.
The Joule in Dallas is geared to stylish design conscious travelers seeking fresh experiences. Love the bold and exciting swimming pool!
