Every holiday season we get in the spirit by welcoming our friendly disco gnome Gnorm to the hotel’s lobby! Not one to shy away from the spotlight, you can often find him taking pictures around the hotel and bar. But his favorite thing is posing for pictures with his friends. This year – in an attempt to ‘make everyday a bit more magical’ as he likes to say – Gnorm has added another cardboard cutout of himself to our holiday photo-booth!

A rise in Covid cases, plus a nasty bout of weather in the Northwest means that Gnorm hasn’t had many friends to visit with this holiday season. But, he’d love to be part of your celebrations and your 2022! Below are some photos Gnorm created to share with you: Use them to enter the NYE contest (visit @modernhotel on IG for details), on your desktop, video call background, whatever you can think of – they’re yours. Just click to save!

Happy New Year, from Gnorm and all of us at the Modern!


If there’s a size you need that isn’t included above, please email erika@themodernhotel.com and she’ll get you what you need.

…and if you start to feel lonely this winter, Gnorm is here to steadfastly keep you company…for as long as you need.
