On arrival guests are greeted by the first glimpses of the panoramic views, and the glowing onyx wall of the reception desk. Guests are then led through the axial flower-lined canyon towards the Jean-Georges restaurant which unfolds in a dramatic bar and lounge. The restaurant is a soaring triple-height space, fully glazed on three sides. The unique pyramidical mirrored ceiling that stretches across the length of entire floor infuses the space with dynamism, reflecting the bustling charm of the restaurant space, while multiplying the views of the skyline at eye level from every corner. The spa and fitness center are located on level 57. Stepping out into a double-height space from the elevators, guests walk along a brightly lit corridor on the northern edge of the building with gym, spa and other treatment rooms. The spa terminates in an infinity-edged swimming pool contained within a striking three-story-high glazed volume which overlooks the city below. The hotel comprises nine floors of guest rooms below. All the bespoke furniture used throughout the hotel – in the public areas as well as the rooms – was designed by the practice.
