About this course:The hotel industry in America began with rustic New England country inns and taverns, progressed to grand hotels with the growth of major American cities as spurred on by the railroads, and has culminated in the sophisticated boutique hotels of today. As America grew in population and prominence, the need for accommodations for travelers spurred the expansion of the hospitality industry while advancing the popular architectural styles of the time. Through lecture and slide illustration, this course addresses the development of the industry, through discussion of architectural and interior styles and the unique regional and cultural influences from various regions throughout the United States.
