The hotel's entrance is at the end of a rotund driveway next to a tall, intricate stone, glass and metal sculptured water fountain featuring birds in flight. Tall olive and palm trees stand on either side of the entrance. The spacious lobby can best be described as chic with high, white stucco ceilings, hanging chandeliers, cream-colored marble flooring, and a large reception desk. The contemporary design of the room is awash with soft, plush crimson and black leather seats, tall gold vases, hearty bonsai trees and bronze sculptures.
