Our hotel designers help increase occupancy, RevPar, and profitability while creatively meeting hotel brand standards through PIPs, new construction, and renovations.


Throughout the design and construction process, Arkinetics works closely with owners and the brand to ensure the values and goals of the team are incorporated into design. Incorporating brand requirements isn’t always a linear path, particularly in conversions and renovations. We recognize that it’s important for a hotel property to stand on its own in a highly competitive industry, and are accustomed to the challenges that come with individualizing your brand. We aspire for those challenges. Challenge evokes creative solutions.


Led by principal and architect Dan Barney, our hotel designers focus on providing the highest level of brand knowledge to hotel franchisees and owners. Our portfolio includes a variety of mid-scale to upscale hotel properties in the Midwest, Eastern, and Southern United States.


In addition, our hotel design expertise is evidenced in the following:


  • We are a preferred architect for Intercontinental Hotel Group’s (IHG) Candlewood Suites brand.
  • Annual participant at The Lodging Conference in Phoenix
  • Annual attendee of The Hunter Conference in Atlanta
