Art and Design
Hotel Lulu has been fully renovated, including all soft goods in the guestrooms, the lobby, outdoor pool, meeting space, and food and beverage venues, with the addition of Lulu’s Coffee. The property was built in the 1960s with a nod to mid-century architecture, which inspired the renovation. The lobby features clean lines with pops of color and a 1960s style record player. Guestrooms offer contemporary furniture and appointed bedding and bathroom amenities.
Each guestroom at Hotel Lulu was designed to be a guest’s retreat. Room categories include two queen bed standard rooms, accessible two queen bed standard rooms, king bed standard rooms, and accessible king bed standard rooms. Guestrooms come with flat-screen TVs; an in-room refrigerator; a shower-tub combination; pick-up dining service from Lulu’s Kitchen, in-room coffee maker and tea service; and complimentary WiFi.
The outdoor pool is outfitted with lounge spaces, fire pits, and al fresco dining tables. Themed cocktails will be offered by the hotel’s outdoor pool like B-LuLu-agoon, a citrusy cocktail that changes colors when stirred.
