Plenty of hotels offer iPod docks and others play hip music in the lobbies but a new hotel concept, MODO takes it to a whole other level. Calling itself "The Hotel, Remixed," MODO has a 'Bauhaus loft design' with high ceilings, exposed beams and polished concrete walls. The hotel has the standard chic amenities including free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, large flat-screen TVs and indie music on demand. What makes the concept intriguing is that the music is the unifying theme of the brand.The properties will offer thousands of tracks from independent artists worldwide in guestrooms and in the restaurant-lounge called RPM. The music will be available in vinyl, CD and MP3 formats through headphones and a sound system. You can also visit MODO Radio on the brand's website for free music downloads.
The hotels will house 100 or more rooms with a restaurant-lounge,courtyard, pool, meeting and event space, library, retail shop and gym. The music theme can be seen in the rendering for the lobby, shown above, where even the pendant lights are meant to evoke musical instruments with their strong vertical lines. In the U.S., the rooms will cost around $90 – $150 a night with the exception of some of the larger major markets. The hotels will debut during the next three years in the U.S., India and Brazil in cities like New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, and Chennai.
