Modern Hotel Room Design Trends for 2023 and Beyond
COVID-19 has changed how people travel, and those trends are unlikely to disappear anytime soon. There’s a greater demand for open spaces, mobile technology, personalization, and efficiency in hotel design. If hoteliers in the hospitality industry want to keep pace with social expectations and offer excellent guest experiences, they need to adjust their approach and open their minds to new hotel concepts and design ideas.
Keep reading to learn about innovative hotel concepts and how you can introduce them to your business.
New Innovative Hotel Concepts for Hospitality Renovation
Hotel guests expect certain features and amenities that reflect the changes the COVID-19 pandemic inflicted. People’s expectations for social spaces, public spaces, and living spaces have shifted, and hoteliers need to provide a guest experience that satisfies these new needs if they want to thrive. Here are a few essential concepts you should consider when planning your hotel renovation:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is present in many industries and is becoming more prevalent by the day. Digitized hotel amenities like streaming services and electronic room keys have transformed the guest experience, providing more options for accessibility and customization. Guests expect voice-activated controls to adjust the temperature, dim the lights, power down, or order room service.
Here are explanations for some of the most prominent smart hotel design features:
Guests should be able to access their rooms without interacting with the front desk through a contactless check-in process. The most effective programs send a digital room key to the guest’s smartphone, allowing them to handle all payments through an app.
To help the process, you should ensure your company website is mobile friendly. That means ensuring all text is readable and guests can complete the booking routine without needing to hop on a computer or speak with hotel staff.
The days of the thick binder detailing hotel services are gone. Hotel guests prefer to have menus, local culture, and restaurant recommendations displayed on a tablet that can also play their music and allow them to control things like temperature and light.

Eco-Friendly Hotel Design Ideas
Green practices are attractive and vital hotel concepts. It’s important to hotel guests that hoteliers demonstrate their commitment to sustainability through investments and assessments like solar panels and LEED certification. Here are a few ideas to consider:
Hotels can install solar panels or purchase solar power from providers to reduce their footprint and cut utility costs. Once you start generating your own energy and reap the cost savings, you can focus your money and attention on improving other aspects of your establishment. For example, you can train your staff on new contactless procedures or introduce more renewable resources like combined energy and power.
Monitoring and minimizing water usage helps hotels become green. Hoteliers should evaluate their fixtures and replace outdated technology with more energy-efficient and water-conscious solutions that reduce waste. Consider showerheads and faucets with aerators or dual-flush toilets.
Combined Energy and Power
Combined energy and power (CHP) captures the extra heat from a hotel building as the power systems generate electricity. CHP units use the thermal energy to heat the property, reducing heating costs. A well-implemented CHP unit can take some pressure off your boiler system and provide easier access to heat.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building rating system that measures a hotelier’s efforts to improve environmental performance from carbon footprint to indoor environment quality. Certification signifies the organization is dedicated to creating and maintaining a healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green building.
Qualifying for LEED certification is sophisticated. The process includes detailed standards and guidelines that include mathematical calculations and comprehensive documentation. Satisfying the requirements may require extensive research and strategic commercial renovation and remodeling. A certified establishment must demonstrate proficiency in the following areas:
- Water efficiency
- Sustainable sites
- Energy and atmosphere
- Materials and resources
- Indoor environmental quality
Hotel renovations should introduce impactful technology that increases comfort and safety for hotel guests. Concepts like centralized heating, ventilation, and air filtration monitors for air conditioning systems improve indoor environmental quality and help ensure guests remain healthy and comfortable during their stay.
Contactless technologies allow customers to engage with luxury hotel services without occupying hotel staff. Guests can order food and purchase services quickly and efficiently—you don’t need to reserve so much space for credit card processors or wait stations. With fewer point-of-sale areas, you can repurpose the spaces into something new and valuable.
For example, you could create an area that features biophilic design—a trend in hotel design that incorporates natural elements like living plants and running water to provide a unique guest experience.
