BUDGET HOTELS Just Say Yo

Category: Hotels, Posted:16 Dec 2011 | 06:00 am

For me, one of the most interesting hotel storylines around are the budget brands.

Let's face it, the same can be said for airlines, the new kids on the block are breaking down barriers, creating exciting new concept and not simply mirroring what the old legacy chains and carriers do.
It's the most exciting space in an all too often tame space.
Kudos has to go to Yotel and in particular to their New York property which opened this year.
Self-service check in (they said it couldn't be done), key dispensers, cabins and a giant robot-like arm which handles your luggage.
Load in great tech, and yes storage 'under your bed, makes a good use of the small space.
Look out for Yotel coming to Asia soon.

It’s Friday and I’m over-caffeinated, so hang on tight. Wait, […]
