US: Hoteliers David Bowd and Kevin O'Shea have launched Salt Hotels, a hotel brand that "redefines the concept of a traditional bed and breakfast".

Focusing on smaller properties, Salt Hotels aims to "integrate the design, amenities, technology and quality of a large urban boutique hotel with the personalised service, unique character and community connections of a bed and breakfast".

Chief executive and co-founder David Bowd, who has worked for Morgans, Ian Schrager and Andre Balazs, said: "With the incredibly warm reception that Salt House Inn received, we are excited to dedicate that vision and ethos to an entire brand. Salt Hotels will offer guests more freedom and a more personalised relaxed experience. We will always focus on the values and amenities that seem to really matter to our guests, rather than on rules and unnecessary formalities. Judging the industry interest we have received in new development opportunities, it appears there is a void in the market which is generating strong demand for the type of property that Salt Hotels creates."

The brand's current portfolio includes two properties in Provincetown: the Salt House Inn which opened in 2013 and the Eben House, set to open in spring 2015; and a third property, scheduled for early summer 2015 opening. Additional projects under development include New York, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Denver, and London.

"Salt Hotels is a creative spin on a traditional hospitality product, born out of our business acumen and industry expertise. We love rethinking how traditional hotels are structured, marketed, and sold," said Kevin O'Shea, creative director and co-founder. "As a brand, we are not afraid to take risks or approach common problems in new and unique ways, all backed by a combined expertise that delivers a solid, innovative product to our guests."
