It’s a bold statement. We didn’t make it. We probably never would say it, but are so grateful someone else thinks so.
For 15 years Greg Oates has been writing for and about the travel industry. He’s held a number of editorial positions and is currently the executive editor of a magazine specifically targeting the events industry. Greg knows hotels. He also has a personal project called 200 Rooms where he highlights what he thinks are the most interesting small hotels in the world. What a great job!
So you can understand our excitement when a blog posting, urging people to support our Kickstarter campaign, came out with the title 5 Reasons Why Detroit Collision Works is the Most Important Hotel in America. It stopped us dead in our tracks.
His article covers everything from our innovative design and commitment to sustainability to our perspective on Creative Tourism and why it’s the next thing coming down the travel trend pipeline. But most importantly he understands the role that a hotel can make in community place-making, which seems to get lost on a lot of people that are just starting to expect cool bars, decent food, and some art in a hotel. It’s time to expect more.
Greg knows we are way ahead of the curve on this one and has explained it more elegantly than we ever could. Go check it out.
