The Pod Hotel is a trendy hotel in Manhattan. But what makes it really unique is actually its online experience – specifically the forums – where guests can share their itineraries and get in touch with other guests months before they ever set foot in the hotel.
How often do we spend time in a hotel, see a bunch of fun-looking guests walking by us in the lobby, but ultimately exchange just a few words in the elevator? If only we had a more natural way of meeting them!
Having a forum is like a social lubricant for this hotel. The guests are more likely to interact with each other once they get there and will consequently have a great time.
People are social animals. Any idea that will make this world feel more connected/intimate is a good thing.
Why aren’t more hotels doing this? STEAL THIS IDEA!
