The hotel room has been fundamentally the same in design for the past hundred years: bed; desk; bathroom; chair; lamp; TV. However, guests have changed dramatically: they are more technologically savvy, design-aware, in-tune with their sleeping and grooming habits and more sensitive to their surroundings than ever before.
Marriott International and jovoto want to usher in a new wave of thinking around the way in which hotel rooms are designed and built.
Rather than refining or tweaking the traditional hotel room experience, you’re invited to push the reset button and design a hotel room from the ground up, incorporating the needs and wants of not just the modern traveler, but the traveler of the future.
Design the Hotel Room of the Future!
Set your spirit free and develop the hotel guestroom experience that might exist ten years from now.
Break through traditional approaches and create a physical space based upon what you imagine are the wants and needs of the traveler in 2022 and beyond. Your thinking should be bold and groundbreaking.
