Before you set about building and designing the hotel you first need to find a good location. Before you pick the location take into account factors such as accessibility to the city, the roads one needs to travel on in order to get the hotel etc. If you want to build a hotel where people can escape the fast pace life of the city and escape to a quiet and secluded location, then finding a location away from the city is a good idea.

However, you could also be looking for the opposite as you may enjoy the fast pace city life and want to build a hotel in the centre of the city. Before you make your decision however, taking into account factors such as cost and safety is a good idea. For example, if the hotel is located in an area that is deemed unsafe and dangerous, it is likely you may not get as many customers as you would like.

What do you want?

When you are thinking of a design, think about the traits you want the hotel to have. For example, are you looking for comfort, elegance, class? Or would you like to have a vintage yet cosy feel to the hotel?

Even if someone is spending more than they would like to, if the hotel looks nice, they will likely be more willing to spend the money as opposed to spending money on an hotel that looks rundown. In order to make the hotel look appealing the furniture that you use plays a big role. The furniture such as couches, bar stools, pool chairs and beds can play a role in making the space look attractive.


Advertising the hotel is important in order to get the word out that the hotel exits.In order to do this, it is not enough to simply talk about the hotel as you will also need to show potential customers pictures of what the place looks like. When you take pictures, it will be beneficial if you were mindful of certain things. For instance, cleanliness. Photographing the space when it looks dirty and untidy will not help you get customers.

Therefore, to ensure the pictures that you take does justice to the hotel, be mindful of these important factors before you take a picture.
