CARVER & ASSOCIATES
The Honeycomb	
Knowing that guest comfort and safety will be paramount
in the post-COVID-19 hotel environment, how do we
minimize contact but not enjoyment, especially during
mealtimes?
Grab-and-go and vending style foods will be abundant,
however hot meals and familiar flavors will also be sought.
Throughout this pandemic, restaurants continued to
offer delivery and pick-up services, and it's that concept
we've extended directly into the hotel dining area. This
model could be applied to budget hotels or be upscaled
to a boutique experience. Our design requires only a
smartphone with a hotel app, allowing guests to order, be
billed, and access the honeycomb-inspired delivery system
with Q or barcodes.
Restaurant drivers gain access electronically through an
exterior entrance into a delivery room adjacent to the
lobby, where sanitized food cubbies line the wall, guests'
orders are placed inside, and they are immediately notified.
Upon scanning a unique code, the correct compartment
opens so they can retrieve their order, and then sit to dine
nearby or retire to their rooms.
There is no contact between people or surfaces, no money
exchanged, and compartments would be monitored and
cleaned after use, offering a near-endless variety of meal
options and allowing many guests to utilize this system at
one time and at their convenience.
Hotels could partner with various local restaurants for
shared benefits and/or delivery charges incorporated with
companies like Uber Eats to extend variety. The cost of a
fully operational kitchen is eliminated-replaced by this
system and small preparation area to service a permanent
market-style wall of additional easy food offerings.
Comfortable yet flexible seating arrangements, flooring
changes indicating appropriate spacing at registration,
and self-check-in stations complete this conceptual hotel,
intended to provide each guest with a safe and unique
dining experience, a regained sense of control, and a
delicious familiar dinner too-perhaps with the hotel's
signature honey. ❙❘❚
