The hotel continues to provide unrivalled hospitality for discerning global travellers, with 168 guestrooms and 38 suites clothed in understated shades of ivory and blue, creating a soothing backdrop for the contrasting charcoal and ebony furnishings. Subtle Art Deco accents are used alongside classic elements, a gentle reminder of the hotel’s historic roots. Softly polished nickel, rich timbers, generously proportioned bevelled mirrors and high-gloss lacquer combine with indulgent satin, mohair and fine wool to encapsulate the glamour and decadence of the 1920s.
