Yotel Hotel, New York: A Model of Future Hotels?

The first half of the ABC News video features a short tour of the 600-room Yotel Hotel in Manhattan. Yotel Hotel is a small chain that has four international locations including NYC, London (two locations), and Amsterdam. The video describes the hotel “futuristic and fun.” Some of the highlights include:

  • Luggage Yobot: A luggage sourcing system with a robot
  • Self Check-in and Check-out Kiosks
  • 20,000 square feet of public spaces, i.e. lounges, studio, restaurants and bars
  • Organic mattresses
  • Free WiFi
  • Monsoon Rain Showers
  • Thoughtful and “traveler-friendly” room design
So, do you think this hotel “speaks” for the future of the lodging industry? What trend(s) does this hotel embrace?
