Boutique Hotel Trends and Themes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

RoomImg1Small, luxurious hotels, known as boutique hotels, are rising in popularity due to their intimate ambiance. The smaller scale allows them to change and evolve more quickly to current trends than some of the larger, busier hotel chains. Some trends that have been big recently include remarkable experiences, less emphasis on busy locations, and increased technology.

 All About the Experience

Boutique hotels allow guests to have their own private getaway far from everyday life and daily responsibilities. Take a mini vacation without traveling to far-away exotic places by booking a room at a boutique hotel. Being outside of the city or other high-traffic areas can expose travelers to a one-of-a-kind local experience that they wouldn’t get anywhere else. This atypical event can be a big draw for people looking to escape their normal routine at home.

Themed Rooms

Guests can often choose from a variety of room options, including themed ones to add to their getaway mood. This can be enhanced by matched bedding collections, such as those offered by Thief River Linen. Cohesive looks using color-coordinated beddings, upholstery, paint, and other décor can create a unique look for every room available. Visitors may even end up with a particular favorite that attracts them to return to the same hotel multiple times. Thief River Linen’s vast array of fabrics and various collections allow them to help create several different theme options for these kinds of hotels.

Off The Beaten Path

For larger hotel chains, location is everything. Their guests want to be in the center of activity with easy accessibility to food, entertainment, and other amenities. For boutique hotels, being secluded or hidden away from the rest of society is more attractive. Local foods, beverages, and services that you might not see in a normal city setting can be a large part of the allure of boutique locations. For a trip away from the hustle and bustle of larger cities, try looking for a smaller, individually owned place to stay.

Constantly Connected

Technology is providing more seamless transactions and entry to these new, high-tech hotels. Keyless entry, digital check-ins and bedside tablets are just the start to what some of top hotels have to offer. Access your room via fingerprint or retinal scans for a secret agent-style entry is available at certain upscale locations. The Upper House in China is virtually paperless and offers guests fully loaded iPod touches, free and unlimited broadband access, and even the hotel’s cars have Wi-Fi. Some hotels take technology to the extremes to provide guests with luxuries they won’t get anywhere else.

Thief River Linen at the HD Expo

By | Whats New | No Comments

HD-FabricsThief River Linen recently had the pleasure of showing a variety of fabrics at this year’s Hospitality Design Exposition and Conference, held in Las Vegas, NV during the week of May 14 through May 16. The HD Expo is the premier trade show for the hospitality industry.

We were pleased to feature fabrics for Drapery, Bedding, & Upholstery. Our booth displayed many of our finest fabrics with a focus on neutrals and various shades of blue. All of which are perfect for hotel use. Whether the property has 15 rooms or 315 rooms, Thief River Linen can provide fabric combinations to order.

Our large scale sheer burnouts drew a great deal of attention. These fabrics can add a touch of elegance to any room décor. Of the two we featured one was a white on white called Sheer Brilliance, and the other had a mix of whites, grays, and navy called Sheer Purpose. Either can work as an overlay fabric with bedding arrangements or add ambiance as part of a drapery ensemble.

Most of the potential clients loved the idea that we can put together entire packages of fabrics for their property to ensure that their colors and patterns blend well with each other and provide information so that the fabrics chosen are ideal for their desired functions. It is important when choosing fabric to keep in mind the purpose each will serve. For example, some fabrics can work for either drapery or bedding, but not be as ideally suited to upholstery. We can help clients match the right fabrics within their chosen color schemes to their intended use.
