Super 8 by Wyndham announced an opportunity for aspiring designers. The objective of the ROOM8 Design Challenge is for applicants to redesign a traditional hotel suite in a way that will update the design of shared hotel accommodations. Applicants are urged to submit original designs, and one will be chosen to become Wyndham’s new ROOM8 (pronounced roommate) hotel room concept.

What the Wyndham contest winner will get

The lucky winner will receive a $10,000 design fee as well as a mentorship opportunity with interior design star and Windy City Rehab host Alison Victoria. The winner will also have the opportunity to update their design with Alison Victoria’s help. Commercial-grade additions from Wayfair Professional, Wayfair’s program for business customers, will then be added to the final version before it’s piloted at a select group of Super 8 hotels in the United States and Canada.

In a statement, Mike Mueller, Super 8 brand leader and senior vice president, said Wyndham wants to make hotel stays more comfortable for people traveling with a group:

Super 8 is known for being travelers’ companion on the road and that’s a role we take very seriously. Our research shows a rising group of guests who need the reliability, affordability and accessibility of a trusted hotel brand but want a space different from that of a traditional hotel room or suite. From millennials road tripping with a group of their friends to construction workers sharing a room with members of their crew, ROOM8 tackles this need head-on, allowing guests to share a room and socialize without forcing them to compromise on having their own personal space, including their own bed.

Alison Victoria says this is a great opportunity for aspiring designers

Alison Victoria encourages aspiring designers to give the Wyndham contest a try. She shared her excitement about the project in a statement. “We’re giving aspiring designers a chance to try their hand at flipping Super 8 hotel suites across the country into modern co-living spaces for a new generation of road trippers,” said Alison Victoria. “This project is an exciting opportunity to incorporate the hottest global movement in travel to an iconic American brand through smart design. Our winning candidate will bring to the table a practical, space-optimizing concept that aligns seamlessly with Super 8’s newly elevated look and feel.”
