Guest suites were complicated by the fact that no two were exactly the same size, so a furniture and built-in program was developed that afforded flexibility. The dark / light color scheme continues from the Hotel’s Public Spaces, with a carpet that reinterprets the historical geometry of the first floor terrazzo, and updates it with magentas and cyans that tie in the Hotel’s brand vernacular.
Original ornate plaster ceilings at the first-floor arcade ceiling were restored along with the patterned terrazzo floors. The historic entrance arcade provides a passage way towards the reception area where Welcome Desks in the form of glowing jewels in stunning compound curved beveled glass shells enrapture guests with their warmth and glamour. The desks glow as warm beacons at the end of the historical corridor awash in magenta glow, as gradually shifting colors change throughout the day and provide a soothing sense of passing time.
