Hotels see business from marketing exterior corridors

REPORT FROM THE U.S.—Cleanliness is always important in the hotel industry.

With the spread of the coronavirus, being germ-free and having more open windows and less closed-in spaces are elevating exterior-corridor properties above their competition. And as hoteliers fight for their share of fewer travel dollars, they need any and all ammunition in their corner to bring in guests.

“Exterior-corridor hotels have a situational advantage during the COVID-19 pandemic, by giving the guest the ability to reduce touchpoints, avoid elevator rides, and be a more self-contained traveler,” said David Sangree, president of Hotel & Leisure Advisors.

Bookshelves are having a moment.

Not long ago, their epitaph was being written. IKEA’s redesign of its Billy unit to accommodate objects other than books was cited as evidence that we had turned the page on possessing print.

Now, that story has a sequel.

Self-isolation has people rediscovering the value of having hardcovers at home. In addition, television networks’ shift to interviews via Skype, rather than in a studio, is revealing the bookcase backdrops of pundits, news anchors and celebrities at home.

“I totally blew it that first Christmas with her,” says the Florida-based author of “Have Yourself a Minimalist Christmas.” “I bought everything this child needed through the first five years of her life.”

That was the precise conundrum Studio Munroe’s Emilie Munroe faced while creating the perfect home for a family that was blessedly open to design statements, sell your home as is but also wanting to live comfortably. “We wanted each room to be layered and textural with conversation pieces throughout, but nothing overly precious or controlled,” Munroe tells House Beautiful. “This is a home for active, fun-loving people who
