Architecture+Design Community Contest: My Memorable Experience of a Hotel Design

in Architecture+Designlast year

Hello Hive!

It is time for a new community contest! Our contest topic will stir up nostalgia and a longing to escape. Given the limitations in overseas travel as a result of the pandemic, we are sure most of us have been craving a lovely vacation from all of this madness.

A perfect getaway destination. Our fifth contest topic will highlight the importance of Hotel Design.


New Contest Topic - My Memorable Experience of a Hotel Design

How does the design and planning of a hotel affect my stay?

The hotel design industry is complex. There are consultants involved in the project that implement hotel brand strategies while designers and architects are in charge of ensuring these brand standards are met diligently and are well-executed. It encompasses proper space planning, the interior design of each room, and careful selection of materials, sanitary fixtures down to each equipment and accessories.


For our latest contest, we're dropping in a twist. We would like to read about Your Personal Experience of an Unforgettable Hotel Stay.

  • Share a minimum of three (3) photos of the hotel you stayed in that you wish to feature.
  • Write about why you chose this particular hotel and its design features that made an impact on you.
  • Define the "Wow Factor" in this hotel. Describe what makes this property unique.
  • Narrate your hotel stay experience. Were you traveling for business or for leisure? Was it from a reputable hotel brand or an Airbnb? What are the basic requirements and important needs that you're looking for when booking a hotel stay?
  • Mention improvements in design or amenities (if any) that would further enhance your hotel experience.

I wanted to ask if I present a hotel that I have not been to, but if my niece, could I make a ticket for the challenge? @aplusd
My last hotels have been in a camping store, (haha it also has design)
Happy week

Hello @txatxy, thank you for expressing your interest in joining the contest. We would prefer the hotel design influence to come from the personal experience of the authors themselves. We do hope you join the fun because it's always interesting to read about your views on design and architecture.

hello I understand perfectly, that's why I asked.
my hotels lately were designed in fabric and aluminum haha
a good hotel to be in nature.
but be sure that I will continue making my tickets for you
happy day and thank you

I am excited literally! It definitely stirred nostalgia. Eager to participate! @aplusd

It is a pity that I am not qualified enough in the field of architecture and design, but, I would move away from gray tones and from the loft, replacing them with pleasing pastel colors, or, conversely, something bright and flashy, like Khokhloma, for those who loves an explosion of emotions.

Hello @barski, we look forward to having you join us next time, everyone is welcome to talk about architecture and design.

Thank you very much, my friend, for the invitation. I didn’t forget about it, but there were difficult days and I didn’t have enough time and energy to publish. See you soon, have a great weekend!
