We are passionate about hotel design and architecture — just like you!

This is the reason why we started TOPHOTELDESIGN as the infinite yet expertly curated gallery of outstanding hotel design and architecture from around the globe – showcasing hotels and brands that follow no trends, but set new aspirational standards of originality, quality and creativity.

This gallery targets hotel owners, developers, investors, brands and design enthusiasts. Those who want to see the exceptional, the unique and the groundbreaking designs that shape the hospitality industry – all in one place. Of course, if you want to know who’s behind the work — this is exactly what you will find!


We have the hospitality industry’s only curated image gallery of hotel design with a special focus on the great minds and teams who made it all possible – the inspiring designers and architects.

We receive hundreds of images daily and handpick the best architecture and design. Every single image on TOPHOTELDESIGN is expertly curated with dozens of tags as well as project details and the studios responsible. Our focus is on quality and certified data.


You can find new innovative hotel designs every single day by clicking on the “New” button.

For more than ten years, TOPHOTELPROJECTS tracks hotel construction projects worldwide. A dedicated team of 20 professionals researches project details and contacts right from the planning, construction to the hotel opening stage, consolidating it all in the online database TOPHOTELCONSTRUCTION.

We have researched over 20,000 projects so far, building the world’s most comprehensive database of stakeholders involved such as developers, investors, hotel owners, operators, brands, architects and interior designers.

This database of decision makers is the backbone of the diverse community cultivated by TOPHOTELPROJECTS. No other company has privileged access to such a rich network of high-level hospitality industry professionals.

TOPHOTELPROJECTS also runs TOPHOTELNEWS, the online news platform focusing on projects, brands, design and experts. With 150,000 pageviews and social media impressions a month, 60,000 daily newsletter recipients and over 200,000 LinkedIn connections, we offer our industry partners a reach like no other.


In 2019, TOPHOTELPROJECTS and Sleeper Media signed a strategic partnership with mutual co-investment.

Sleeper has received widespread acclaim as the leading magazine for hotel design, development and architecture.

Published six times per year, Sleeper features unrivalled coverage of the latest projects, products, practices and people shaping the industry. Its core circulation encompasses all those involved in the creation of new hotels, from owners, operators, developers and investors to interior designers, architects, procurement companies and hotel groups.

The Sleeper portfolio comprises a beautifully presented magazine, an affiliated website and regular email newsletters, as well as industry-leading events including AHEAD, the awards for hospitality experience and design. Sleeper is also the organiser of Sleepover, a networking event for hotel innovators hosted in a different city each year, and has recently launched a sister publication – Supper – focusing on global hotel F&B as well as Starboard, focusing on transport hospitality like cruise ships or trains.
