People today are more sophisticated than ever before, and they understand and appreciate good design, quality, and originality in ways that would have been unthinkable a few decades ago. They will not accept derivatives, and they want the ethos and soul of a hotel to be authentic and have both character that’s entirely unique. They also expect and deserve impeccable, modern and gracious service that is both personalized and luxurious, yet down to earth. It’s the ultimate balancing act of these apparent contradictions to create a hotel that is simultaneously specific and customized yet universal.
