Room service is provided for a fee, and guests arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the nearby car park (fees apply).The hotel includes 209 36 m˛ deluxe rooms. Displaying aspects of both a city hotel and a resort hotel, they are at the same time high-tech and warm - plugged-in yet chilled-out - and thus give a pleasant and rejuvenating experience to weary travellers. The hotel offers a selection of room types with king-size, queen-size or twin beds, private patios and poolside sundecks. Each room features a desk, high-speed Internet access, cable/satellite TV, in-room safe, individually regulated air conditioning and a minibar/mini fridge.
