But the crème de la crème of accommodations is the opulent Royalty Suite on the fifth floor with three bedrooms and three baths.

The suite is tied together with purple accents, chic artwork and a custom chandelier to create a chic atmosphere.
The two main restaurants, Bleu and Latitude 33, offer guests a choice between a contemporary French brasserie and tapas and finger foods inspired from countries on the 33rd parallel, respectively.

When it comes to relaxing, guests will be able to enjoy the new Le Spa which incorporates Moroccan influences into its therapies. The facility boasts an ice fountain, balneo aquatic experience, a 24-hour fitness center and whirlpool and steam rooms.
