The relaxed setting offers casual, yet sophisticated, dining with a menu that highlights regional and seasonal ingredients. In warm weather, we offer the best outdoor dining around in our main courtyard.
  • A Tranquil Setting. Behind the warm and classic-style architecture lie quiet garden courtyards, fountains and secluded private spaces. Our guests love to retreat to the solace and charm of the hotel after a long day of work, travel or play to relax and avoid the hustle and bustle of other more urban-style hotels in the area.

  • Barista. Start your day with a freshly brewed coffee drink and baked goods at our very own barista bar.

We also have delicious baked goods and treats to grab-and-go to get you on your way quickly.
