We’re taking a look behind the scenes today at designing the under construction Shinola hotel in Detroit.

The 129 room hotel will feature Detroit-inspired design from the renowned Gachot Studios, coupled with an innovative food and beverage program from New York-based NoHo Hospitality Group, known for opening top restaurants, hotels, live music venues, and major sports arenas around the country. Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group is the architect of record for the project.

In the video, Shinola Creative Director Daniel Caudill shares his vision for the Shinola Hotel, an idea born out of the desire to bring people together. The hotel, expected to open this fall on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, is thoughtfully designed to feel both nostalgic and thoroughly modern.
