Hotel Guestroom Design

COURSE ID: SHA623

Course Overview

Hotel guests base much of their view of a hotel on the design and layout of their guestrooms. To ensure success in a full-service hotel project, developers, designers, and other stakeholders must ensure that floor plans and guestroom designs will meet or exceed the expectations of their target guests.

This course walks participants through the process of developing an appropriate room mix, floor plans, and guestroom designs that will please guests while also returning value for owners or investors. The focus is on design considerations relevant to guestrooms and related areas, not the actual drafting of architectural plans.

Cornell Professor Stephani Robson has many years of experience as a designer, lecturer, and author, and shares her expertise through videos, activities, and tools that will help you apply these concepts to your own situation.
