Check Out the Award-Winning Motel 6

“Travel + Leisure” announced its “2010 Design Award,” and Motel 6 is the winner. Some descriptions of Motel 6’s new design include: “cost-effective-yet-cutting design,” “budget-Ikea-meets-pricier-West-Elm sort of look,” “a room that maximizes space, utility, and style,” and more.

The bad news is only 60 out of the 1,000 Motel 6s in North America have been “transformed,” which are located in Baltimore, Dallas, San Diego, Houston, and Chicago. I like the new look of Motel 6. It is clean, simple, and contemporary. How about you? How would you like to stay in an updated Motel 6?

We have discussed hotel designs in W Hotels and Holiday Inns (http://linchikwok.blogspot.com/2010/02/how-would-you-like-to-work-as-fashion.html; http://linchikwok.blogspot.com/2010/01/upgrade-of-holiday-inn-from-logo-to.html). What’s next? Are we expecting a “hotel-design” campaign soon?
