A new luxury hotel will open in the center of Waco, Japan, and this time it will really surprise its visitors.

The modern art deco Herringbone hotel at 319 South 4th St. is scheduled to open in March 2024. The hotel, converted from a former container complex, will offer 21 boutique rooms, as well as four restaurants, including a rooftop bar, as reported by houston.culturemap.com.

The rooms, ranging from 230-square-foot singles to 1,300-square-foot multi-bedroom suites, are decorated in an Art Deco and mid-century modern design style. Taylor Lidge, the hotel's lead interior designer, said that he wanted to emphasize the existing exterior architecture of the space while completely transforming the interior to bring out design aesthetics from various periods of history.

"We sought to showcase the layered elements that come from a variety of regions and historical periods through the lens of a 20th-century traveler and her husband - evoking the feeling of your grandmother's attic, filled to the brim and brought to life as if it were a new brand," says Lidge. "The Art Nouveau details are balanced with modern futuristic shapes and a bright, bold, contemporary color palette that brings a light sense of humor and new life."

In addition to the classic boutique hotel amenities, it will offer luxury extras, including reusable hotel-branded bottles, MovieBeam entertainment and fitness programs, morning craft coffee, and a daily happy hour in the evening.

Previously, the Herringbone was home to The Containery, a development of colorful shipping containers that closed in 2021 and has been vacant since. Lucky Find Hospitality acquired the project, which encompasses an entire city block, and collaborated with San Diego-based design firm Rad Lab, FreeForm Development, and renowned Waco chef and restaurateur Corey McIntyre to bring the hotel to life.

The hotel is located near popular tourist shops and stops such as the Dr. Pepper Museum, Fabled Bookstore and Cafe, the Downtown Waco Farmers Market, and (of course) the Silos at Magnolia.

"As we began spending significant time at the market, our team quickly fell in love with the community, the people, and the thriving food, music, and art scene," says Lucky Find Hospitality CEO Rigel Bitterman.
