We’re thrilled to share that The Lobby Lounge and RawBar will undergo a dramatic transformation this Fall, with the renovation phase occurring between September 1 and September 20. While there will be designated hoarding installed in some areas of The Lobby Lounge during this phase, there will be minimal impact to the guest experience. The Lobby Lounge and RawBar will remain open during this time, with its reveal set for Fall 2018.
