In addition to the guest room improvements, the hallways were updated and the lobby was completely transformed. Check in pods replaced the dated front desk and new seating, lighting, artwork, flooring and front doors await guests. In addition, the parking lot was resurfaced and top-of-the-line Wi-Fi was added to the entire complex. Finally, the patio was updated with shade structures, seating and family games complimenting the inviting family friendly indoor pool area.
"The Henry Doorly Zoo is a Midwest institution and we are thrilled to be the only hotel located next to it," said Doug Gamble, a GLI partner. "Furthermore, the redevelopment of 13th street easily transitions our hotel into downtown and the Old Market".
