NORFOLK — The summer opening of The Glass Light Hotel and Gallery has been pushed to late fall 2019 because of construction delays.

The Glass Light is part of Marriott Hotel’s “Autograph Collection,” a series of boutique hotels that focus on art and design, and will sit on the site of the city’s historic Royster Building.

Overall there will be no major design changes to the hotel but the rooftop bar planned for building 201 has been scrapped, according to Hunter Compo, director of sales and marketing for the Glass Light Hotel and Gallery.

There will, however, still be a bar in the lobby.

Visitors will still be able to enjoy the 117-room hotel in addition to the multiple meeting rooms and boardrooms.
