GrandHotels

By Leo Gullbring
What do we want from a hotel? Should it contain the caressing safety of home? Or should it be a titillating adventurous expression of freedom? Or something completely different to the expected? The most common solution are too often neither nor, instead hotels looms forward as uninspiring dreary in a conformist way, anxious to appease and satisfy everyone out of a standard formula which in the end fits nobody. Nonetheless the hotel industry are producing more and more of so called design hotels where architecture and design is the crucial parameter in catering for a demanding hotel clientele.
