A neighborhood is a social community with meaningful, face-to-face interaction and a strong sense of inclusivity among members. It breathes a sense of inclusivity, a sense of transformation and a sense of unique curation. It’s a place sought out by the curious, seeking to discover a new (or familiar) place, experience or product. The Hotel becomes a neighborhood in itself – resonating with the values of both the guest and the local community. Amenities are approached organically, spreading from the inside out, reflecting the expertise and authenticity of its home. Placed in any city, town or resort The Hotel blends and emphasizes what is around it. By maximizing the public space, the hotel becomes a destination for a community to come together inside. It is a place to seek and a place to find.
