Hotels Turning Lobbies Into Cocktail Bars and Cafes
In a capitalistic market like ours in the U.S. competition encourages industries to try new directions to attract more consumers. The hotel market is no different -- Marriott, Wyndham, Omni, etc. -- they are transforming lobbies into cozy cafes and enticing lounges offering guests a new experience without having to leave the premises. With such amenities as Wi-Fi, appetizers with international flair and cozy leather chairs surrounding posh fireplace settings, travelers no longer have to seek out options away from their lodging. I find this especially appealing as I tend to travel alone and feel a bit sheepish about sitting in the restaurant all alone. Pitiful I know.
