Upgraded rooms add quirky, art-inspired decor, while 1-bedroom suites offer separate living rooms. There's stair-access only. A breakfast buffet and a public transport pass are free. There's also a refined restaurant and a chic bistro with floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a laid-back cafe/bar and a wine shop.
