Highs + Lows

  • Insanely comfy mattresses & pillows — I guess this is what sleeping on a cloud feels like.

  • On-point design all around, super photogenic and Instagrammable — heaven for all #interior lovers (and don’t forget to check out the library!)

  • Aesop products in all bathrooms — I’m sold!

  • Salad bar and sandwiches at Delish are exceptionally good — don’t miss the cinnamon rolls.

  • Water carafes in each room and you can refill these at a spring water tap on each floor.

  • Some rooms face the street — which might be a little too noisy at night for those who are light sleepers.
