Tablet was founded in 2000 by Laurent Vernhes and Michael Davis, new media veterans who were tired of predictable chain hotels. In their search of hotels with personality, an obsession with details, and an experience-beats-economy mindset, they created TabletHotels.com, the trusted source for extraordinary hotels around the world.
Create a hotel where guests
mingle freely with locals, and with
other guests, where experience
is shared, friendships are born,
business contacts are established,
and real human connections are
made, all under the hotel’s roof.
The winning hotel will be a place
where people come together
serendipitously. Location is limited
to downtown New York City, south
of 23rd street. This means an urban setting, with street frontage, and a hotel surrounded by buildings of roughly similar size.
While tasteful and attractive
interiors are important in selling
the concept, the foundation for a
winning submission is the concept itself, not the surface qualities.
Authentic, Bold, Innovative, Irreverent.
