A gold balustrade ac­cents the sweep­ing grand stair­case in the lobby, the restau­rants all have soar­ing ceil­ings, and the hall­ways are lit by more chan­de­liers. Close at­ten­tion has been paid to ev­ery dec­o­ra­tive de­tail, from the spe­cially com­mis­sioned paint­ings by Span­ish artist Ed­uardo Ar­ranz-bravo in the lobby and works by Cha­gall and Pi­casso at the Prime 7 steak­house, to the glit­ter­ing tiles at Com­pass Rose and the Asian mo­tif in Pa­cific Rim.
