As you step into the hotel, the reception area is located to the right-hand side of the lobby. The one theme hits you smack in the face as the reception desks sit atop wine coolers and the entire area is "tiled" with wooden wine boxes. At the reception area you are greeted by a smiling employee who asks your name and then offers to show you to your room.

The hotel has four floors and a rooftop bar called Edge is located on the top floor. Both guests and non-guests have access to the bar, the latter via a dedicated elevator and the former from the guest rooms with keys required for re-entry.
The Epicurean Theater is an area in the lobby that is dedicated to teaching food, wine, art, and culture. The day that we were there a class on Tea and Chocolate pairing was being taught by Abigail St. Clair.
