Contrary to popular belief, Room 1903 was not, in fact, created in 1903. But its story begins there. On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright forever changed the travel industry when the Wright Flyer, often referred to as the 1903 Flyer, was the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft. Rooms, would then change, too. Prior to 1903, hotels and hospitality had limited reach. In 1914, the world’s first scheduled passenger airline took flight between St. Petersburg and Tampa, Florida, paving the way for even more change. Room 1903 was created to not only tell fascinating stories, but to also be disruptive to the travel industry — much like the brothers Wright — by giving brands the ability to tell their stories.
