The property will feature 1,400 SM of meeting space with five meetings rooms, including a grand ballroom that seats up to 500 guests, three restaurants and both spa and fitness facilities including an infinite pool on the roof overlooking the river and the convention center. The Z shaped plan creates beautiful open spaces facing on both the south with a landscaped plaza which opens up to this new district and a garden to the North with a view of the River and the new Convention Center and supports outdoor dining, entertainment and events.
