“Our perfect storm is to have a bunch of locals treating our space as a living room. We want our hotel to be their space to stop on their way home,” says Jeremy Bennett, the new director of lifestyle for the über-swank, hyper-local new Crossroads Hotel. “Hotels aren’t as kind, warm and welcoming as they could be. We want people to come and hang. It’s a comfortable, cozy space to grab a coffee, grab a meal, or have a meeting.”
