This modern yet cozy ground-floor space off the lobby is wonderful for relaxing, socializing, and meeting friends old and new. Amenities include plush sofas and seating; a large flatscreen TV; an ATM; a computer terminal for 24/7 guest use; and reading material including magazines and maps.
Another cozy space, but outdoors - a well manicured oasis of calm against an urban backdrop, with various seating areas for guests.
Continental breakfast (included in the room rate) is served daily in elegant surroundings off the reception area, including waffles, bagels, yogurts, croissants, muffins along with an assortment of tea, fresh fruit and coffee.
In addition, near the front desk you'll find a wide selection of gourmet teas, coffees, lemonade, hot chocolate - all complimentary.
