Change of pace.
November / December
The wifey and I.
A quick bite from The Standard Café, just off the lobby, will help get you refreshed for your day of meetings or kick off your holiday.
Lawn making it rain smiles...
Always love arriving during the early part of the day, you get hit with this view that is full of energy.
This little baby melts the stress away and pairs nicely with a bottle of bubbly.
An office with a view, perfect for productive mornings.
The most pleasant of staff that will sure to be like family before your stay ends.
The Perch, hidden on the 2nd floor, is a wonderful spot for relaxing and cracking open a book.
Narcissa. Take a friend and order a bit of everything to share.
Outdoor seating at Narcissa.
Fun fact: the restaurant was named after a cow on Andre’s farm.
Upon arrival you instantly feel the warm welcome from the lobby and the amazing staff that greet you.
Highs + Lows
The staff is one of the best, quickly making it a home away from home. Be sure to say hi to Lawn in the Café, he’ll get your day started out right.
The details are everywhere, from the Daniel Ashram cloud hanging in the elevator bank to the perfect perch for quiet working, reading or napping.
I can’t say enough about their restaurant Narcissa, really, you must go.
Even though the gym is across the street, having to walk 100 yards for a fantastic gym is much better than being stuck with a terrible one in the hotel.
Their coffee in the café (or your room) is amazing, but make sure they don’t charge you for a refill.
The standard rooms are a bit small for the price, but things change if you upgrade. Although, no matter which room you choose the view is bound to be killer.
