Below, we've highlighted a few of the most stunning examples of hotel lobby design — and the integral role tile selection plays in these beautiful spaces:

The Maramara Park Avenue

Maramara Situated within a gorgeous building dating back to 1927, The Marmara Park Avenue boasts both a long history and a promising future. This up-and-coming landmark incorporates a subtle elegance that grants guests a luxurious environment while still allowing them to relax and feel fully at ease. Perhaps most impressively, The Marmara Park Avenue is on board with today's terrazzo revival; the hotel's stunning version features a brass inlay design.

From the flooring to the ceiling, no detail or luxury has been spared in the making of this grandiose hotel lobby.

Gramercy Park Hotel

This hotel attracts a decidedly artsy and edgy crowd, with visitors most impressed by the original Warhol and Basquiat works on display.

Lyford Cay Club

Understated style dominates at the Lyford Cay Club. The lobby subtly incorporates tropical elements in keeping with this private haven's Bahamas' location. Contrasting neutrals dominate the lobby's design but are occasionally set off by pops of color. The result? An intimate, welcoming environment that visitors find just as calming and relaxing as the white sand beaches the club overlooks.
