BLLA Foundation – Principle #3 ART
Why is art so vital to boutique and lifestyle hotel design, experience, culture?
The soul of a property lies within the confines of the brick and mortar of the building however, the character can only be felt and defined by the art on its walls. This experience touches a guest in a deeper place in the hospitality world and draws an emotion that is stored in the memory banks for years to come.
Opening up to art, of all kinds/types/genres, instills a sense of well- being and wreaks of authenticity and should be handled very carefully yet purposely in order to attract the right guest at the right time.
Examples: 21C Museum Hotels, The Betsy Miami
Similar to art establishments such as museums, hotels can hold their own if they display the art with grace and sensibility and offer avenues to experience it after the hotel stay.
Here, at BLLA, we support the emerging artists and respect their value in the communities around the world.
