a big mix.
things are new and falling into place.
the lobby is grand, contemporary art is on point, indoor pool and sundeck impressive, and rooms super sharp. high ceilings and huge windows ensure dramatic views into a vertical skyline, and with matt and gloss black walls, burnt orange carpet, curtains, shoji screens and 60s-esque styling you could forgive yourself for thinking you were in osaka.
