Many successfully weave in partnerships with other musicians as well as designers, and all feature a distinct aesthetic. Think Mats Theselius armchairs in the guest rooms at an ABBA member’s hotel.

And while COVID-19 has changed the way we travel in recent months, there are still socially distanced road trips to be had. At the very least, you may want to add some of these properties to your post-vaccine bucket list.
