For the “Hotel Design Award 2023”, which will be awarded at the 196+ forum in Milan on April 17, the jury has nominated 13 hotels from among 21 candidates from nine European countries.
The award criteria include the originality of the architecture and design concept, the associated architectural quality of the building and the facade, and the design of the interior. Emphasis is placed on the design approach and the “storytelling” associated with a convincing hotel concept.
13 hotels selected from six countries in Europe
Andreas Martin, chairman of the jury, said: “Among the 13 nominated hotels from a total of six European countries, there are six classic city hotels in cities such as Berlin, Munich and Vienna, as well as seven hotels in destinations holiday destinations such as the Spanish Pyrenees, French-speaking Switzerland and South Tyrol, Italy”.
All nominees have created a connection with place and destination through the design approach and, at the same time, are increasingly confronted with the smooth transition between business travel and vacation stay, known under the name of “bleisure” or “workation”. It will therefore again be a challenge for the interdisciplinary jury to determine the finalists.
