Its on-site restaurant and bar will serve typical local food and drink both indoors and in its 10,750+-square-foot garden. Meetings and event spaces will accommodate larger events and smaller social gatherings and business meetings.
Other amenities at the property include a spa, indoor pool and rooftop bar.
