Our Philosophy & Culture

Dawson Design Associates is a full service Hospitality Design Consultancy with a distinctive difference. Our team is trained to create hotel experiences by amplifying through our collaborative approach, a product that goes beyond your guest’s expectations. We play the role of ‘Guest Advocate’ taking into considerations all aspects of the hotel design and project needs. We fuse this expertise with Branding and Strategic Positioning in an impactful and fashion forward manner. Our unique and distinctive approach provides our clients with the edge they need to be competitive in their respective markets.

Our highly structured, internal design process promotes speed, accuracy, efficiency and quality of documentation. Our dedication and passion for artistry and distinctive interiors ensure that our projects capture maximum exposure in the Industry and in the Press.  Every Designer at DDA participates in our comprehensive training program known as ‘DDA Grad School’, a two year program that teaches the skills and expectations required in becoming a world class hospitality designer. No matter the projects size, location, scope and scale, all our projects are treated with the same ‘hands on care’ and attention to detail.

Established in 1987, we have a proven track record of successes and long term relationships with many of Hospitality’s ‘A-List Clients’. Every member on our team holds a personal stake in achieving the goals of our clients.  Our creative designers invest countless hours every month tracking emerging international trends and new success stories in hospitality on a global level so as to stay current and fresh. Tracking our completed projects on sites such as Trip Advisor and Yelp give us a constant ‘reality check’ to make sure we are exceeding your guest expectations and doing our job. The Hospitality industry is our passion. Creating hotels that soar to the top of their markets and are recognized for their remarkable design is our goal, every step of the way.
