  • Magnolia Hotel & Spa Unveils New Lobby for Spring

     
    POSTED April 30, 2017
     

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.

As I write this, I am sitting in the Hilton Anchorage getting ready to head out for a day of tours and adventures with a group of about 30 event planners. About two weeks ago, I was in Vancouver, BC with a group of three other editors/writers doing the same thing in that city. Yeah. I know. I have a pretty fabulous job. And so, I wanted to give a shout out to the CVBs who plan these trips and help me get better acquainted to everything our region has to offer so that I can, in turn, introduce you to new places and things to do when you’re planning a meeting or event.
