As soon as guests cross the hotel threshold, they will encounter a renewed, light-flooded lobby. The new Whisper Bar & Lounge here is destined to become a favourite spot to catch up with friends or business partners, with multiple cosy seating areas to relax and savour a refreshing drink, a cocktail, coffee or teas, along with a savoury snack or luscious dessert together with live entertainment in the evening.

Enhancements to the interiors of the adjacent Parkview Restaurant, with its eight-metre floor-to-ceiling windows, will be revealed in the first quarter of 2020. This serene space will be ideal for guests to observe the bustling city scene outdoors in a quietly elegant environment and enjoy refreshments at a light and airy self-service market-style cafe with open kitchen stations and an interactive environment for diners to observe chefs.
