Professional Hotel Photography for Hotel Hive

What an exciting opportunity to be chosen as the Hotel Photographer for the brand new Hotel Hive!

We love photographing hotels.  That's a given but this hotel shoot was different than anything we have ever done.  Wow!!  

The Hotel Hive will open this week and we are so happy that they will launch their website with our photographs.  It was an intense photo shoot - we photographed 13 room types as well as the Hive Bar and lobby.  All in the middle of last minute construction issues, visitors coming in for a sneak peek, and lots of Washington, DC traffic.  We thank Jim and Mai Abdo and all the staff of the Hotel Hive who made this a fantastic experience for us.  

The Hotel Hive has gotten lots of well deserve buzz! Here's an excerpt from the Washington Business Journal article "Historic Allen Lee Hotel to be remade as pod-style Hotel Hive" :

"The rooms will top out at around 250 square feet, about half the size of a traditional hotel room. Some will have a queen bed, while others will be outfitted with bunk beds. They’ll all have their own bathrooms, something the Allen Lee couldn’t boast before.

A bar and lounge and fast-casual restaurant will occupy the main level. Abdo is talking to the team behind local pizza chain  &pizza about the food program, although nothing is finalized. Wi-Fi and other technological amenities — including charging stations everywhere — will abound. It will also have a rooftop lounge and a bi-level outdoor patio.

Abdo Development bought the Allen Lee Hotel building in 2004, not sure if he would pursue residential or other development. He leased it back to the Allen Lee operator and the hotel continued its operations until December, when work began on the new project in earnest.

“The more I look at the hotel space, with the lifestyle changes of millennials, the ripple effect of everyone going through the recession, people are rethinking their approach to everything,” said Abdo, who is known for his upscale condominium developments. “There are smaller homes, there are smaller hotel rooms.”
