Motel chique

 

Nos Estados Unidos, a tendência de reformar motéis, principalmente os das décadas de 50 e 60, e transformá-los em “templos do cool”, vem ganhando força nos últimos anos.

O conceito faz sucesso, pois geralmente os preços são menores que os dos hotéis, e por isso atraem uma clientela “mais interessante”. Veja alguns exemplos:
