referencing the heritage of the port city, the designers sought to create a dialogue between local culture and the hotel chain’s more contemporary approach. historic features, such as the sun-bathed chapel, searing vaulted ceilings, stained-glass windows and hidden inner courtyard are juxtaposed against modern-day comforts and luxury amenities.
