A Message From Our Co-Founders

To Our Lyric Community,

Over the past few weeks, the COVID-19 crisis has dealt an unprecedented blow to the hospitality industry.

As a start-up, we are far from immune to those forces, despite the incredible support of our team, investors, board of directors, and an army of industry veterans and fellow entrepreneurs who similarly face the most challenging of times. To ensure our company can weather the storm and give us the best chance to continue building Lyric, we have made the difficult decision to close many of our locations.

This decision will impact much more than just our guests. It will also affect many of our team members—including those who work in our San Francisco headquarters, at Lyric properties, and remotely. Support for our affected employees is among our highest priorities at this time.
Since our inception, we have had the privilege of working with local small businesses, artisans and designers across this country—many of whom became friends. We sought to bring the stories of the neighborhoods into our suites, empower local businesses, and make our guests feel like they are at home even when they’re away from home. We cannot express the joy we’ve experienced bringing their passion to Lyric guests over the past several years, and we hold them dear to our hearts as they weather this current situation.

Our mission at Lyric has always been to build a more creative and connected world through a new hospitality model. That dream still remains, and we’d argue that it is more relevant and important than ever.

We’ve created a special FAQ in our Help Center to answer most of the questions you might have and can be reached at hello@lyric.com for any additional inquiries.

In the meantime, THANK YOU to our guests, partners, and amazing teammates for your loyalty to Lyric.

Andrew  and Joe
