BRANDLife: Boutique Hotels & Hostels

, ,

The boutique hotel trend shows no sign of slowing down with stylish lodgings popping up everywhere for any budget. More than just a shelter for trippers to rest their tired heads, contemporary boltholes are also meant to be social clubs, gallery space, and a gateway to local culture and stories. Some may even aspire to become an attraction themselves, offering one-of-a-kind hideaways to add an extra layer to travellers’ short stays.

BRANDLife:Boutique Hotels & Hostels aims to foreground the hotel brand identities that have resisted our culture of hospitality through ingenuity and ambition. Through case studies, colourful showcases and interviews with leading hoteliers and brand specialists, readers will acquire a rare insight into how these visionaries corner the market and remarkably connect customers from around the world. The book is a sequel to BRANDLife: Café & Coffeehouses which examines modern café brand visions applied to visual identities and space.
