The lobby at The Travelers Hotel doubls as a community hub, with fresh coffee daily, a bar, and plenty of comfortable seating and social spaces. Rutledge and Williams have invited local organizations and nonprofits to hold events and fundraisers there, and often host community events like book talks and live music. “This space is a really great opportunity for folks—locals and guests—to mix and get to know each other and just have great conversations,” said Ann Williams.
