Tourists Hotel North Adams | Picture Windows with Bottom Up Shades

Just outside of North Adams, MA sits a nostalgic retreat reminiscent of a classic roadside motor lodge. Tourists, an aptly named 48-room boutique hotel, beckons travelers off the beaten path with minimalist accommodations and a quintessential vacation experience that is equal parts relaxation and exploration.

Bright, spacious guest rooms are subtle by design, void of distraction that would detract from the natural wonder of the Berkshires. Large picture windows, outfitted with battery powered R Series shades, tempt guests out of bed and into the great outdoors.

An R Series shade blends into this understated interior. No pocket, valance or fascia needed. Unsightly components (motor, wires, and mounting screws) are concealed by the shade tube and low-profile brackets.

Guest rooms offer flexible privacy options. Some windows feature two shades—a standard roller shade paired with a custom up-roller (pictured below). Up-rollers provide privacy at the ground level while preserving views and permitting light through the top of a window.
