What's a Deconstructed Hotel?

Its an answer to a lot of questions weve been asking. Like what would happen if we took the hotel on a little field trip? What if we unbundled it & brought its rooms to the kinds of neighborhoods we ourselves would want to live in? What if we stretched & reconfigured those rooms to include a dining area & a living space, & perhaps an extra bedroom or two for the kids? What if the design was modern & exciting, & the only thing cookie-cutter wasnothing. A place like that would help create a travel experience built to take guests further. To bring them home better. And thats a place wed like to stay. And a philosophy weve built our company around.
