Listen To The Glockenspiel

Situated towards the rear of the main lobby is the magnificent Glockenspiel.  “Glockenspiel” is German for “play of bells”.  The clock plays Christmas carols and strikes the time hourly from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.  The Glockenspiel is European Beech from the Black Forest region of Germany and hand-cast bronze bells from the Verdin Company in Ohio have been crafted into a distinctive carillon and clock.

The Glockenspiel is quite loud. Keep this in consideration when requesting a room or when taking small children who could be sensitive to loud noises.
