We stayed in a gorgeous and spacious one bedroom apartment with king bed, office desk, separate lounge room with couch and tub chairs, full kitchenette, dining table and chairs.

The hotel has some gorgeous internal spaces too, from their marble foyer with pops of fuschia and chrome sculptures, to vibrant yellows and greens with modern lighting throughout the hallways.
