Cordish introduces new boutique brand Live! Lofts

The flagship Live! Lofts property will undergo an extensive $3 million renovation project and be transformed into a boutique hotel.

The Cordish Companies expanded the reach of its Live! Brand with the launch of Live! Lofts, the newest name in boutique hotels. The flagship Live! Lofts will be born from a newly acquired hotel located near The Cordish Companies’ Live! Casino in Hanover, Md.

This is the second major hotel announcement within a week from Cordish, which just celebrated the groundbreaking of its flagship Live! Hotel, a 17-story luxury hotel, event center and spa, to be located directly adjacent to Live! Casino.

Live! Hotel and Live! Lofts are the first two hotels to carry the Live! moniker and round out The Cordish Companies’ portfolio to include both luxury and boutique hotel accommodations. Expansion of both brands is planned across the United States and internationally.
