  • Roomy suites provide the perfect place to chill out after a day exploring the vibrant city.

  • Refurbished in September 2011, the hotel now boasts an indoor pool, Turkish bath, gym and sauna. In-room beauty treatments are also offered.

  • The former ballrooms now form part of the grand lobby.

  • The art deco Chivas bar serves huge gin and tonics and cocktails.
