TrendSafari – transformation through experience


The colorful furniture and airy atmosphere of the lobby give guests plenty of Instagram-worthy photo ops.
At reception, computer screens display a constantly updated Instagram feed.
Period windows let in an abundance of light, and complimentary iPads allow guests to order room service, control room temperature, or look up restaurant recommendations.
Each suite has its own unique layout that plays upon the building's original architecture.
The world’s first “Instagram hotel” — inspired by the photo-sharing app — is certainly photogenic. With a five-story atrium, exposed brick walls, and colorful furniture, Sydney’s new 1888 Hotel provides plenty of photo ops for its social media-savvy guests. The 90-room boutique hotel recently opened in a historic building in the city’s Pyrmont neighborhood, and it’s already making a splash on the photo-sharing site, according to CNN’s Michael Stoneman. Screens at the reception desk display a constantly updated feed of photos uploaded with the #1888hotel hashtag, while guests can proceed to the specially designated “selfie space” and take a photo behind a gilt frame. Instagram users with more than 10,000 followers get a free night’s stay, as does the guest who posts the most creative shot of the hotel each month. Source :
