Best Rooms: The hotel offers both iterior and exterior views; the interior view is of the atrium with ponds, a garden and a waterfall, while the exterior views are of downtown and the surrounding buildings.
Best Rooms: Rooms either face the courtyard, which has a grassy area, waterfalls and a pool, or the city. Guests generally prefer rooms facing the courtyard because the hotel is only 6 stories high, so the city views are limited.
