Having opened back in January, the property will now undergo a rebranding exercise, and will be unveiled as a Tribute Portfolio hotel in October.
All guestrooms feature a Parisian-chic vibe with plush bedding, Italian marble, glass mosaic bathrooms, and mahogany furniture. The hotel is also home to Vagabond Salon – a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon with over 464 sqm of event space.
