The redesign is in the final piece of a $140 million hotel makeover project, which included upgrading all 2,267 guest rooms and meeting places.
The new lobby centerpiece will feature a custom crystal chandelier above the fountain and feature a new geometric ceiling, increased lighting, all new contemporary décor and furnishings and more than double the amount of seating. There will also be a bar and lounge with seating up to 150.
A new quick service café and market offering coffee, sandwiches and snacks will open as well.
“This space is designed specifically to cater to today’s guests and offer an inviting place where they can come together to relax, network, and grab something to eat or drink," General Manager Fred Sawyers said in a news release.
The lobby will remain open throughout the renovation. The project is scheduled to begin in spring 2017 and be completed by fall 2017.
