Top 100 Travel Trends in 2019

From Supersized Potato Hotels to Overnight Museum Stays

— January 26, 2020 — World
From spud-shaped hotels to overnight accommodations in the Louvre, the 2019 travel trends reveal that consumers are increasingly looking for out-of-the-box vacation ideas.

When it comes to hotels, consumers aren't simply looking for a bed and breakfast, but a full experience. For example, the Hilton London Bankside hotel collaborated with Bompas & Parr and The Vegan Society to create a fully vegan hotel suite that draws awareness to veganism as a sustainable lifestyle choice.

Of course, consumers are not just limiting themselves to hotels. As the 2019 travel trends reveal, unique Airbnb experiences are also in high demand. Some of the most unique Airbnbs of the year include an overnight stay at the Louvre museum in Paris, a tiny home shaped like a giant potato, and a Malibu mansion decorated just like Barbie's iconic Dreamhouse.

For more travel inspiration in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter’s 2020 Trend Report.
