tasteful revamp of one of the city’s premier 1930's-style mansions, has
created a seamless blend of old, epitomized by the grand stairway

Attention to detail is evident throughout,

guest suites to the newspaper lounge with its spread of local, regional
and national papers. Other facilities include a bar/ cigar lounge
(with a dedicated air-conditioning system), a gym complete with change
rooms and a steam room, as well as the option of a personal trainer,
and a well-equipped boardroom for those conducting business.
Guests will enjoy beautifully appointed

All suites enjoy views over the city and look
