Con­tem­po­rary de­sign and lo­cal touches blend to cre­ate a dis­tinct and vi­brant aes­thetic. Amenity-filled guest rooms, pro­gres­sive din­ing, cut­ting edge tech­nol­ogy, flex­i­ble and ex­em­plary meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties and a brand new so­cial event ex­pe­ri­ence make ev­ery guest stay spe­cial, while in­no­va­tive spa­ces, such as The Great­room, al­low guests to seam­lessly blend work and play. Mod­ern and so­phis­ti­cated in its ap­proach, pro­vid­ing ex­pe­ri­ences that
