A new type of hotel, fresh to the shores of the United States, is on the way and will soon be opening its doors in Dallas, Texas. Travel is frequently synonymous with adventure and the singular goal of SOVA Hotels is to provide its guests with more stories than anywhere else. This boutique hotel incorporates elements from around the world and ties them together to offer a sense of community and comfort. Guests stay in micro-rooms, and in exchange for smaller spaces receive luxurious elements sourced from around the world at noticeably lower rates. Check-in starts at the lively SOVA bar where guests will be offered recommendations and daily activities by the local “Travel Guides” on staff.
Developed by 27-year-old twin brothers, Blake Shirk and Brandon Shirk, SOVA was born out of the pair’s passion for traveling with the need to also save money. Noticing a gap in the U.S. for such a hotel concept, they decided to start their own project, creating high-end, minimalist rooms amongst carefully designed, inviting group spaces. Every aspect inside SOVA tells a story, which is exactly how the Shirks envision each guest’s experience to be.
After you are done exploring the city, come back and indulge with luxury-grade mattresses, 7-foot-high SOVA Monsoon showers, free blazing fast WiFi networks, and even cutting-edge Japanese robotic toilets. SOVA even purchased custom furniture to fill the rooms and public areas. To sum up: the SOVA team combined 50 countries’ worth of global travel experiences and distilled it into the details guests will see at SOVA.
“What stories do you have from your life?” Asked the Shirks. “We would wager that many of the stories you share from past years are from your travel experiences. We want to help weave those stories and ensure that you have memorable ones with new friends.”
The SOVA team chose a location with walkable proximity to dozens of lively bars and restaurants, downtown hotspots, and the Dallas Farmers Market. Each room combines features from 50 diverse countries, offering a luxurious haven to lay down at night before taking on another day of adventure. SOVA will open to the public in late May and will be located at 2105 Commerce Street.
