“Art is such a cornerstone of all Legacy Hotel and Resorts’ properties, especially at The Leonardo, where there are hundreds of original, local artworks from sculptures, to installations, tapestries and paintings. We wanted to not only highlight the art that our guests can experience but use the Arts to tell the unique story of this iconic building in a new and an authentic way.”
Guests at The Leonardo can dine at a variety of eateries, including Leo’s Lounge & Deli, fine dining at contemporary European restaurant and wine library, AURUM, the wood-fired meal-offering, Octo Bar and soon-to-be-opened, sky bar, Alto234, on the roof of the iconic building.
