Some takeaways from the article:

  • The pandemic accelerated pre-existing shifts towards more functional, flexible, and customizable public spaces in hotels.
  • Underutilized spaces like all-day dining restaurants can be converted into co-working areas that generate additional revenue through longer guest stays.
  • Impactful design and metrics-driven planning of new concepts can optimize revenues from communal, social-centric spaces.
  • Blending workspaces with hospitality amenities gives hotels an advantage over traditional offices.
  • Details like biophilic elements and wellness spaces respond to emerging guest priorities.
