In the early European hotels, Lobby is usually not big, but it is the hotel's management and operation center.

The lobby of many small hotels with only a dozen or more than twenty rooms often only needs one or two full-time managers. However, since the "big bang" phenomenon of hotel development in the United States in the early 1970s, the traditional hotel model has changed, the scale of hotel construction has become larger and larger, and the size of the hotel lobby has expanded accordingly.
