MCLEAN, Va. - A new lobby design introduced by Hilton Hotels & Resorts reflects the brand's commitment to exploring the latest design and technology innovations, ensuring the lobby is an engaging environment relevant for today's global travelers and offering flexible solutions for hotel owners. Accessible technology, contemporary food and beverage offerings and an adaptable environment for community engagement are three hallmarks of the Hilton lobby design approach.

The new experience, created as part of a three-phase $40 million renovation of Hilton McLean Tysons Corner in the United States, offers a flexible layout that encourages a social atmosphere where guests can interact, work, and collaborate. The centerpiece of the lobby is an 18-hour bar that evolves throughout the day serving coffee, select grab 'n go specialities, shared plates and specialty cocktails. A dedicated Technology Lounge, integrated into the lobby experience, updates the traditional business center concept, bringing the space front and center, with PC and Mac workstations, and communal work table.The check-in experience has also been transformed with pod-style front desks allowing Hilton Team Members and guests to interact more directly with personalized service.
