Room for Play

Size matters. That’s why we broke the rules and designed our hotel rooms to maximize every inch of space. They’re full of little surprises and big delights like motion-activated LED guidelights and walk-in showers. Plus, helpfully designed wall features that allow for hanging and storage options to complement the compact room design. It’s your room—use it however you like it.
