Magnolia Hotel & Spa's lobby renovations are officially complete.

Victoria-based design Sandy Nygaard worked to bring a timeless design to create a classic yet contemporary space for guests. The design includes detailed drapery, carpet and furnishings.

“The lobby is our living room,” says Bill Lewis, general manager. “We want guests to feel at home here, whether reading by the fire, working on their laptops or sitting back to sip a tea or coffee. This makeover will make it even more inviting.”

Nygaard designed the carpet herself with a hand-drawn design featuring magnolia flowers and greens including greys and taupe. New light fixtures were added to provide a welcoming ambience for guests. Furniture was rearranged to create a more open feel.

A new feature to the lobby is a coffee bar open 24 hours a day providing a functional and sophisticated space.

The hotel’s bedrooms were refurbished in 2013; the hallways were renovated in 2016.

Located in the Tri-Valley area of Northern California, AC Hotels by Marriott opened its doors to the newly imagined AC Hotel Pleasanton this past November. Conveniently situated, AC Hotel Pleasanton is in short proximity from premium shopping outlets, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment.

 

The largest tourism player in the Arctic, Off the Map, is using its platform to create an entirely new “Truly Green Aurora” experience, focused on combating climate change and creating a deeper connection between guests and the environment.

 

On Nov. 1, global hospitality group, Benchmark added Manor Vail Lodge to its Colorado portfolio. Established in 1965 and situated at the base of Vail Mountain’s Golden Peak, its location offers picturesque views, yet is within walking distance from the ski slopes, shops and restaurants, giving guests the perfect mix of fun and relaxation.
