Hip hotels push style over substance
Erik over at Gadling points us to this
New York Times article about how hip new hotels are turning off some travelers, particularly those who are there
for business. While Starwood Hotels' W chain (whose furniture
you can buy online) has proven so successful with young
urbanites that's it's launching another trendy brand called aloft, the Times spoke with a few travelers who were less
than pleased with the booming dance music in the lobbies, the funky furniture in the room, and service which is often
less than stellar.
How important is style to you when choosing a hotel room?
