What Rockwell Group offers
Lottie’s welcoming design, by renowned interiors firm Rockwell Group, evokes a chic Parisian café, including classic elements like a white wraparound marble countertop, inset brass detailing, lantern-like sconces and lush greenery that hangs from overhead canopy.
The charming aesthetic complements the Lobby’s refined new look, which artfully blends modern fixtures with historic, restored architectural details dating back to 1925, including the original ceramic tile flooring and pecky cypress beams.
