Bringing individual flavor to the hospitality industry?

I've never stayed at one of their establishments, but the model that JdV has pursued is interesting: extreme transparency, individuality in their product offering, respect for workforce in an industry renowned for abuse.

Are these things a competitive advantage, or is it self-defeating in a way by hindering growth (along with the spread of more sustainable practices)? 

What lessons can social entrepreneurs take as we look at how to transform the rest of the hospitality industry?

What did you think of this review?

Do you work in the hospitality industry?  If so, I'd love to hear your personal answers to these questions, and I'd love to see you elaborate on their business model.  I'm sure other readers would, too! 

By the way, since you're interested in this boutique hotel company, I thought you might appreciate @Bethany_K's list of Boutique Hotels in NYC ;)
