The concierge will be activated when a guest steps on a word that’s projected on the lobby floor, at which point the digital concierge will provide local information on restaurants, entertainment and other activities.The Garment District hotel will have 348 guestrooms as well as a gastropub that features a fifth-floor patio with a retractable roof.
