First impressions mean everything. A hotel's lobby is the first thing you see when you enter, so the reception area needs to impress you immediately. Of course, the design has to be thoughtful and make sense, as the lobby is used for contracting business. Each lobby shown here does a beautiful job of visually explaining to guests what their hotel is all about.
