A new hotel will provide you a room to match your mood when you check-in.
In St. Louis Missouri, a new hotel is opening that doesn’t stop at just giving you the size of the room that you want. They want to go one step further and match your stay with your current emotional state.
At the Angad Arts Hotel, each of their 146 rooms has a specific color theme to match a specific mood. Green is for rejuvenation, yellow for happiness, red for passion, and blue for tranquility. You ask for the room during booking or when you arrive at check-in, and then select the color that best matches your mood.
Or you can pick the color for the mood you wish you had. The Angad Arts Hotel can help switch your mood as much as it can augment it.
“We realized the experience of being in a room that’s all blue or all red is going to have a different effect on the guest,” says Steve Smith, CEO and founder of Lawrence Group, the hotel’s developer, in an interview with Travel and Leisure. “If we were going to saturate the rooms with color, why not promote the emotions?”
Smith goes on to say the theme came about entirely by accident when discussing possible room themes. Single-color themes were already a possibility, so the design team just took it to its logical extreme. Or maybe illogical, depending on your color preference. Each color doesn’t just permeate the walls, it also coats the furnishings, bathrooms, art, and even the bedsheets.
“It’s amazing when people walk in the room. You get audible gasps,” Smith says.
In addition to the color, guests will also get to pick their room size as though picking out a t-shirt: XS, S, M, L, and XL are options all corresponding with single beds all the way up to king-size suites. And you get the sense that Angad Arts is appealing to a certain millennial-type crowd.
The art installations that litter the hotel are all made by local artists. There are projectors outside that make it seem like silhouettes are climbing the walls of the building, while at the top floor you’ll find a 360-degree art installation on a constant video loop. There’s even a restaurant/bar that has a collection of board games for those that aren’t quite into the usual nightlife.
The Angad Arts Hotel in St. Louis opens November 1st, and you can already book your stay on their website.
