Light evening fare includes snacks, wine and beer so guests can unwind. The hotel still features its breakfast buffet for most days and the local dinner special items that have become favorites for many guests.  A full Lobby Bar was added to enhance to beverage services for hotel guests, and a spacious seating area was added to complement the new bar.

The Market, a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries, is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste you forgot to pack.  Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action, to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area.

A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoard® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch screen packed with local information, maps, weather, and news, business and sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.
