From a designer’s perspective, working on a hotel’s look is very much about giving the guests an experience that is a delicate combination of being memorable, beautiful and practical.  It’s akin to orchestrating a number of factors which include a design theme.  Hotels with superb design don’t try to please everyone.  They have a specific audience in mind, and yet, all of them give what’s expected by way of amenities and services.  

Psychology comes to play when designing for this scale of commercial properties. A symphony of colors, materials, textures, lighting and scale come into play to give guests the best aesthetics. The location is also key: is there a poetic view to offer guests looking out the window?  Or perhaps, is there a dynamic street experience that the site offers once guests step out of the property?  Still, some hotels play up their locations’ historical and cultural value.
