Set in the city’s principal upscale shopping area, this lavish 179-room historic hotel is located opposite Esplanade Park. A majestic circular lobby is surrounded by huge fluted columns highlighted with gold leaf. While the interior is a faithful re-creation of 19th-century opulence, renovations have added contemporary accents such as colorful graphic prints to public areas, in addition to upgrades for all technological amenities. Exceptionally comfortable rooms feature luxurious duvets and feather pillows and baths with heated floors. Executive Rooms and all suites have complimentary access to the exclusive Upper Lounge. One of the Executive Suites contains its own sauna. Dining options encompass an elegant brasserie. The stylish cocktail bar is a delightful option for pre-dinner drinks.
