LeMeridien, located in Cambridge MA, is located between the prestigious Harvard and MIT campuses and is minutes from Downtown Boston. HEI Hotels retained Baystate to renovate the lobby and bar of LeMeridien, a project requiring a complete reconfiguration and relocation of the restaurant, Amuse, to the previously existing lobby registration area.
By reconfiguring both locations of the bar and lobby, Baystate was able to create a more open, dynamic environment that increased space for the hotel’s restaurant. Custom lighting and finishes were installed, along with the addition of a stone face into the bar’s design. The reception area consisted of a new front desk made of custom millwork, wall finishes and designer lighting with dimming features.
When managing this project, Baystate recognized it was crucial to logistically coordinate the position of the bar, requiring effective project management, and clear lines of communication between upper management and all sub-contractors.
