We're Sensing a New (Manly) Naming Trend Here...Are You?
Hotels have always used different methods for naming their properties--perhaps they were inspired by the view out the window, or wanted to convey a feeling the hotel will give guests or they want to use something practical like the hotel's address. And of course, some naming methods aren't very inspiring or practical. Hotels often take the last name of the owner and slap it on the building (Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, etc.)
But in the past decade, boutique and budget hotels have gone much the same way of nightclubs and restaurants by using only one word to name their property. Ace, Andaz, Edition, Aloft, Element, Public, Tune, Mondrian, Indigo, Even, etc. And now we're noticing another new trend amongst boutique hotels--manly names. Case in point:
· The Roger in NYC, complete with a bow tie logo and shaving essentials in the toiletry kits.
· The Godfrey (opening in Chicago next year)
· The William (opening in NYC soon)
· The Archer (opening in NYC early next year)
· The Marlton in NYC
̭ The Alexander in Indianapolis
· Tomie Hotels (the new spin-off brand to Thompson Hotels)
