Hospitality Design

"Hospitality" encompasses some of the most regularly visited and most intimate forms of entertainment design: hotels and restaurants. Hotels, unlike any other venue, have the potential to make the most personal connection with their guests: they act as homes away from home. The most sophisticated hotels will go above and beyond the call of business to create something truly unique, offering guests an entire experience. Similarly, restaurants are places that visitors go to be taken care of and comforted. Delicious food and an attentive wait staff are part of what make a restaurant experience great, but a cohesive theme and integrated entertainment elevates the experience to something magical. Entertainment Designer finds some of the most innovative, creative, and exciting examples of hospitality design across the globe.
