Accor: What Will be the Hotel Room of the Future?
September 21, 2017 5:47am
Accorhotels has made an interactive hotel room timeline inspired by the last century’s evolutions
Travel through time with a hotel room and immerse yourself in the Roaring Twenties or in the modern style the future may bring. To every era its own style, to every style its own room.

Little in common between the twenties shiny rooms and the flashy and geometric style of the sixties! It is not only the design, but also the rooms' equipment that evolved. While the beginning of the century's petroleum lamps were not easy to maintain, today we can turn on the light with a clap of hands. A beep can open the curtains and a snap of the fingers can change the TV channel. This timeline of the past 100 year offers us a glimpse at the numerous transformations one single hotel room went by through the ages.
A global perspective
In cooperation with Lobke Elbers (Community Manager at TravelNext) and Patrick Kooiman (Writer at interiorator.com), AccorHotels BeNeLux teams are convinced that such original initiative is a great way to display content in a different and interactive way. The goal? Offer a reflection of every era's society through the hotel rooms' evolution… A travel through time that will seduce more than one!
