The Algonquin Hotel in Manhatten, New York City has managed to stay true to many of its historical roots.

Founded in 1902, The Algonquin was designed for the elite with a passion for culture. Today, that is still going strong. The lobby and rooms have a very classic and traditional feel to them, making you feel like you are back in the early 20th century.

Implications - With greater technology introduced every day, the need for simpler things is rising. Consumers are seeking out ways to revert back to classic elements to achieve a tranquility in their fast-paced lives. Companies could create their products with this need in mind to increase their power on the market.
