Keep an eye out for these hot hotel trends in 2020.
Now that the new year is underway, it’s important for hotel owners to look ahead at the coming trends. By anticipating these hospitality trends, you can quickly adapt and stay one step ahead of your competition. In 2020, here are some of the major trends to watch out for.
- Bringing the Outside In
One hotel trend to expect is designers looking to blur the lines between interior and exterior spaces. This style is particularly effective at hotels located in areas of natural beauty, such as properties in beachside or tropical locations. Hotels looking to capitalize on this trend create a flow between indoor and outdoor spaces by incorporating elements such as water features, greenery, large windows, and multilevel terraces into their design.
- Creating a Home Away from Home
Today, travelers expect a high level of personalization at the hotels that they stay at. To meet guest expectations, hotels need to be flexible and use technology and design elements to help visitors feel at home. Things like voice-controlled technologies and smart TVs can offer the convenience that guests are used to having in their own homes. Additionally, design elements like marble counters and living plants can create a residential appearance that makes a guestroom feel homier.
- Appealing to Millennials
Millennials will continue to be a leading force in the travel and hospitality industries. To appeal to this younger generation of travelers, hotels will start offering amenities and experiences that go beyond having nice guestrooms. By offering free events that allow travelers to mingle, experiences that help guests explore the local area, and moments perfect for every social media feed, hotels can appeal to the millennial market.
