The Midtown Pop-Up Hotel consists of several modules including a bed, sofa and bathroom set up that can be packed into the size of an average building elevator [5]. These unique and transport-friendly pop-up kits are stackable, shipped with the use of wooden pallets and tracked with RFID tags [6]. Assembly is quick and the elements unfold easily to turn empty office spaces into instant hotel accommodations.

“The Pop-Up Hotel is designed to be a means of urban revitalization [7], an economic catalyst, as well as an active community partner. We strongly believe the Pop-Up Hotel to be a transformative experience for both the building and more importantly, the hotel guests,” Pinkcloud explains.

There’s no question as to whether building owners would take advantage of this innovative design and hospitality solution to address their current office vacancy crises. The Pop-Up Hotel has earned substantial recognition including the Radical Innovation in Hospitality Award [8]—a competition founded by the John Hardy Group and Hospitality Magazine and sponsored by Global Allies.
