Hotel Design, Planning, and Development
Hotel Design, Planning, and Development, Second Edition, is a thorough overview of the important and fast-growing hospitality industry. It is revised and expanded from the previous edition--the "bible" for designers, developers, planners, and students. This edition, updated to include significant hotels developed internationally in the last ten years, outlines essential planning and design considerations based on the latest data, supported by technical information, 60 Line drawings, 59 Tables, 429 full-color images, and many original floor plans. The authors describe and illustrate different types of hotels, at different locations--downtown, suburban, airport, roadside--with different mixes of facilities--casino hotels, convention hotels, conference centers--and provide analysis and theory to support each of the major trends, highlighting how the designers' work fits into the industry's development as a whole. They give increased attention to interior design psychology and the design process.
