It must be a thankless job to be a hotel room designer. Either you’re trying to make a cookie cutter hotel room seem interesting and inviting, or you’re having to shoehorn a design into a hotel that has a seemingly infinite number of different room configurations. You’re also trying to maximize the functionality of the room with a limited amount of space, while at the same time trying to remain current with design trends. AND you’re trying to please different masters – keeping the hotel executives happy while pleasing hotel guests.
While I can usually see the thought process behind many decisions (except removing desks from hotel rooms; that’s just dumb), I found a hotel room that had a layout where I just couldn’t believe no one noticed this major design flaw.
