Mount Rushmore in the lobby of the Adoba Eco Hotel in Rapid City. In 1991, It was one of the first large-scale waterjet lobby marble medallions in the world. Today, hotel visitors continue to enjoy the enduring marble medallion as a memorable part of their Mt Rushmore visit.
Karim Merali purchased the largest hotel in Rapid City South Dakota with a vision of making it the premier hotel in the area. Merali wanted a unique lobby treatment, since his hotel was at the gateway to Mt Rushmore country. At first, his idea was a simple emblem at the entrance to the lobby. You can see nothing was simple in the lobby of this beautiful Hotel, look at the mural behind the Check in desk.
