Coolest Hotel Lobbies

With record-breaking installations or simply great design, you’ll want to linger in these spectacular lobbies.

A hotel lobby is more than the face of the hotel. It is the heart and soul as well. It leaves an indelible first impression on guests welcoming them to their new home away from home,  waiving them bon voyage at the end of their stay, and providing them with a warm reception upon their return. Such a vitally important space deserves intelligent design, and these architects and designers have risen to the challenge. Whether the lobbies feature record-breaking installations or simply embody hospitality and thoughtful design, the ones on this list are not to be missed.
