A trio of restaurants

Corinthian columns support a gilded ceiling in the hotel’s lobby. A trio of dining options fill the palatial space, offering everything from locally caught seafood to Asian dishes. Guests can sip Mai Tais in a tropical rainforest setting, or get their coffee fix in the European-style Caffé Cento.
