The exterior of the building is composed of elegant Swisspearl panels with punched window openings juxtaposed with a beautiful curtain wall facade. The entry of the hotel, which is carefully tailored to express the elements from within, welcomes guests with a striking glass porte cochere set against a backdrop of stainless steel shingles that have a gentle enveloping curve.
