AAA Inspector Notes
After a busy day step into your room, press a button to draw the drapes and retreat to your spacious bathroom, graced with an over-size soaking tub, or a sumptuous bed with enticingly soft linens. The fictional Shangri-La was a harmonious paradise hidden in a remote valley of the Himalayas. A similar spirit of peace and harmony is evoked in the heart of this modern hotel. Carefully tended bonsai trees and boxwoods are at the entrance. The lobby presents a décor drawing upon well-integrated, subtle elements such as white marble floors, hardwood walls and Chinese ceramic artwork. Snuggle into one of the soft, dove-gray leather chairs and enjoy tea while contemplating the fanciful tooled-metal art mobile of a flock of birds. One already feels compelled to soar away into the green depths of a mystical utopia! Art of a gallery proportion can be found throughout the public spaces and includes a chic exterior statue and unique display cases individual to each guest corridor. This theme of transport to a place of peace and harmony continues in the guest rooms and suites. They have an understated décor that includes artwork of Chinese calligraphy, enticingly soft linens and a silk bed scarf. Smoke free premises. 202 units, some two bedrooms. 66 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
