Put your head down...in the clouds
The One by Five hotel in Paris is unique in its design. The whole hotel is meant to make guests feel like in a dream world. Every wall and floor is covered with photo-canvas full of stars and clouds, while beds, mirrors and lights give the impressions that they are floating. The overall design gives guests the feeling of an endless and surreal space.
Why it matters
The design provides a true experience for guests and goes beyond providing all the functional elements one would want or need in a hotel room. Are there other services that may be considered routine or functional that could be spiced up to make the experience worthwhile?
iFeedback is a new app allowing hotel guests to instantly transmit any criticism or praise they may have. Smartphone Users can scan one of the many QR codes placed all over the hotel to report complaints right on the spot or use one of the ipad terminals. The feedback is then instantly forwarded to the corresponding person in charge.
