Element Hotels Debuts Communal Living Room Concept
Element by Westin®, Marriott International’s brand, has launched a new set of hotel experiences today that create inclusive opportunities designed to inspire connectedness among today’s modern nomads and their circle of friends, family and colleagues, both near and far.
The initiative celebrates Element Hotels making history with the launch of its new room concept, Studio Commons. The room type is the first in the industry to blend the convenience of a hotel with the flexibility and comfort of a home, giving travelers the best of both worlds while on the road.
The rooms are designed for groups looking to spend time together in a more private setting, while still enjoying all the benefits of a hotel room. Anchored by four private guest rooms, travelers can cook, collaborate and relax together in shared kitchen and living room areas, allowing them to live as they do at home without having to compromise space, comfort or amenities.
The Studio Commons layout debuted at the new Element in Scottsdale (AZ) in June 2019, followed by Boulder (CO) in July 2019. Additional Studio Commons units are expected to be rolled out at Element Hotels opening in Sedona (AZ), Sacramento (CA), Ontario (CA) and Minneapolis (MN) within the next year.
Studio Commons is slated to be featured at all new Element Hotels signed after the first quarter of 2017.
