Trending: Smaller Guestrooms

With a stronger emphasis on common areas where guests can meet, mingle, and hang out, many hoteliers are scaling back when it comes to where the guests actually sleep. While the average size of a hotel guestroom in the United States is about 350 square feet, many hotels are experimenting with smaller and smaller guestrooms. Best Western’s Vib offers rooms at about 250 square feet, and hotels like Pod 51 in New York City have rooms as small as 100 square feet.
