Mid-century modern hotels swing into a new era

With a signature architectural style, classic mid-century modern hotels emerged throughout the U.S. from the 1940s through the 1960s. This design movement was characterized by minimalist structures and clean lines, accented by simple décor in vibrant colors. Instantly recognizable, mid-century hotels are popular both with nostalgic travelers and with millennials who admire the timeless modern design and the casual ambiance it embodies.

In recent years, several iconic U.S. mid-century hotels have been reinvented and given a new, contemporary point of view, while still retaining the essence of the era. These properties have embraced their mid-century heritage with a renewed vibe and updated feel, inviting guests to enjoy a glimpse of stylish (and sometimes kitschy) history while enjoying modern comforts and amenities.
