Future Agenda and PearsonLloyd develop Crowne Plaza's next-gen guestroom

Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, part of the IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), unveiled its next generation guestroom.

The new Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts guestroom introduces an angled bed design, reducing noise levels during sleep.

Working for the past two years with Future Agenda and PearsonLloyd, both specializing in areas such as the future of workspace, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts developed a design that is expected to challenge the traditional norms of business space in hotels.

Like the “working triangle” of a chef's kitchen, the new Crowne Plaza room allows guests to move between three key areas – a cocooned bed, a flexible “nook” and a workspace.

The angled bed has a padded, curved headboard that, along with insulated wall panels on each side of the room, reduces noise levels to help better sleep. The “nook” area offers a multi-purpose space to hold informal meetings, doubling as an area to socialize. Meanwhile, the multi-purpose workspace offers a clutter free surface with accessible outlets and adjustable lighting.

The new guestroom will launch in the Americas region in 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown and with early adopters.
