Designed by the San Francisco-based design firm Puccini Group, whose high profile projects can be seen around the world, the new Hilton Anaheim lobby will “be a soothing escape from the surrounding urban elements, while still being sleek, sophisticated and distinctly Californian,” according to the designers. The new lobby is scheduled for completion mid-November 2008.
The focal point of the lobby lounge will be a massive backlit onyx bar. To calm the senses, a waterfall will glide over an artful geode in the center of the room. New tile work, rich carpeting and dramatic lighting round out the transformed ambiance of the lobby.
“The lobby is the heart of any hotel and sets the tone for the entire guest experience,” said Harold Rapoza, general manager of the Hilton Anaheim. “Our lobby will be contemporary, serene and inspiring. It will be a place where people want to gather, work, dine and entertain.”
