Course Focus

Hotel guests form much of their opinion of a hotel on the design and layout of their guestrooms. To ensure success in a full-service hotel project, developers, designers, and other stakeholders must ensure that floor plans and guestroom designs will meet or exceed the expectations of their target guests.

This course walks participants through the process of developing an appropriate room mix, floor plans, and guestroom designs that will please guests while also returning value for owners or investors. The focus is on design considerations relevant to guestrooms and related areas, not the actual drafting of architectural plans.

Cornell Professor Stephani Robson has many years of experience as a designer, lecturer, and author, and shares her expertise through videos, activities, and tools that will help you apply these concepts to your own situation.

Who Should Take this Course?

This course is appropriate for architects, interior designers, and hotel consultants interested in gaining an understanding of the challenges and considerations involved in full-service hotel design; owners/developers and construction managers for whom full-service hotels represent a new building type; and architecture students who want to develop a specialization in full-service hotels.

  • Correctly recognizing an appropriate floor plan for a hotel project

  • Matching the room mix with market needs and addressing its implications for the rest of the building

  • Applying the concepts of guestroom zoning
