HOTEL BUSINESS REVIEW

May FOCUS: Eco-Friendly Practices

May 2022

A recent study found that 72% of global travelers are inclined to make sustainable travel choices, and are more likely to book an accommodation if they know it is eco-friendly. Obviously, hotels must take action to address these issues-not only because it's a moral imperative but because it makes good business sense. One leading hotel chain recently committed to only buying furniture from reclaimed wood. Another replaced their mini-fridges and coffee machines in each room and instead, provide them in a communal area to reduce electricity usage. One hotel chain collects their food waste and converts it into biofuel, and another became the first to make use of environmental blockchain technology to offset its carbon footprint. Guests can spend their credits on initiatives that "develop, protect and conserve natural ecosystems." The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable, eco-friendly practices into their operations.

Architecture & Design: Welcome Home


Hotels are still very concerned about adhering to all required sanitation protocols but as the crisis wanes, they are also being relied upon to provide a space to escape and retreat in comfort. To satisfy this need, many new design trends are emerging. One such trend seeks to cultivate an environment that is comparable to the warmth and coziness  a traveler might have in their home. Lobbies are being reconfigured to resemble a family living room. For example, one leading hotel chain provides an off-lobby common area where four separate video game stations and two video games tables are furnished - all free of charge to play. Another trend is to replace traditional business centers with co-working spaces  where the lines between working and social interaction are often blurred. Finally, recognizing the impact of social media, hotels are designing specific areas to facilitate picture perfect moments (think Instagram). These are just some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
