Hotels have long been more than just a place to rest your head for the night when you go on a trip. For many people, the hotel is the reason for the vacation, and it provides a special experience that cannot be obtained at home (although many hotels want to make their guests feel at home). Sometimes it is expressed in luxury and a particularly high bar of indulgences, but for many tourists, luxury is not the main thing. That is why many hotels are dedicated to a special theme, depending on the area of interest of the guests, are designed accordingly and offer an overall hospitality experience that revolves around the chosen theme, whether it is art, literature, music or adventure. Here are some special themed hotels around the world:
The Library Hotel, New York: Dewey style hotel
Literature lovers will delight in this hotel on Madison Avenue, which is inspired by Dewey’s method of sorting and cataloging books. What sounds a little gray on paper turns out to be a real gem – each of the ten floors of the hotel is designed according to one of the categories of the Dewey method (including literature, history, philosophy, art, etc.) and the six rooms on the same floor are equipped with a library with 50-150 books from one of the subcategories of the same floor. Thus on the eighth floor, dedicated to fine literature, you will find rooms dedicated to mysteries, legends or poetry, and on the 12th floor, dedicated to religions, you will find rooms dedicated to mythologies, Eastern and New Age religions. The works of art that decorate the rooms are also in the spirit of the room. On the first floor, one of the special rooms in the hotel is the love room, and in it, apart from a private balcony, there are also works of art and books on the philosophy of love, selected by the sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer. As befits a boutique hotel, the rooms are tastefully decorated with attention to detail.
