Trends in Hospitality Design That Appeal to All Ages

Exhausted from a cross-country trip, a grandfather checks into his hotel room in Boston and sits down on the bed. His two grandchildren are eager to hop in the pool, but he wants to take a minute to relax in the familiar surroundings.

Out west in Seattle, an experienced businesswoman checks into her hotel room and immediately scans the place for cultural calling cards. She’s traveling for work, but she really wants to explore what makes this hotel, within this modern city, so wonderfully unique.

Down south, an elder Millenial couple with their young family are getting settled in their room that offers the perfect amount of togetherness and privacy at the same time.


Hospitality Furniture Trends 2024 Still Making Waves


If there's one thing we've seen in our 5+ decades in the casegoods business it's this: hotel design trends – including those for casegoods and furniture – are always changing.

For planning purposes during a hotel renovation or redesign, this is a smart move -- your FF&E is ready and waiting for you, and production delays have little impact.

Proper FF&E storage makes a big difference in order quality and longevity.


Cost to Build a Boutique Hotel From the Ground Up

According to Cushman & Wakefield, the average cost of building a hotel ranges from $115,000 to $1.5 million per room. That takes hotels at every level from midscale to luxury, including boutique hotel projects.

This is a huge variance, and the price that’s accurate for your hotel largely depends on a few things:

  • Where the hotel is.
  • Design considerations desired to complement your brand.
