New York, NY

A new hotel at the edge of Times Square was an opportunity to create a futuristic, techy hotel set within a larger residential development. With first-class luxury inspired by Japanese capsule hotels and modern air travel, YOTEL lands in Midtown.

Guests enter the lobby and meet the world’s only robotic luggage concierge—a huge mechanical arm that theatrically stows their bags for transport to guest rooms.

A 15-foot-tall Yobot has an expansive reach and can retrieve luggage in 30 seconds or less.
During the day, tables disappear to make room for a seating pit with cushions.

In the restaurant, long tatami-inspired tables retract into the floor to make room for dancing.
