Josh Mason Weighs in on Boutique Hotel Design Trends with Hotel News Now

How will boutique hotel design trends differ from branded hotels trends in 2020?  According to MONOGRAM Design Director Josh Mason and other prominent designers, the boutique/independent hotels create opportunities for a different approach, and open the door for unique solutions.

Mason, a veteran designer in the hospitality industry, provides insight on the functional and aesthetic characteristics developing in boutique hotels in Hotel News Now’s latest article, “Designers say boutiques allow more creative flexibility”.

An excerpt from the article on HNN:

“Social Drive: We’re seeing boutique hotels offering spaces for independent podcasts, poetry readings or performance arts, which all help to integrate the hotel into a shared community space.

“Retail: Some boutique properties are expanding beyond the typical retail offering with unique alternatives such as tattoo artist studios.

“Size: Smaller food-and-beverage spaces, like unique gastro cafes instead of larger restaurants, are becoming more prevalent. We’re also seeing small individual pubs instead of bars and smaller multifunction spaces instead of ballrooms.”
