One of the major perks of staying here, especially if you are a health fanatic, is that all guests have access to the many extensive programs and facilities available at the adjacent Bellevue Club: an indoor running track, three pools, indoor squash court, outdoor tennis courts, and a full-service spa are a few of the club's luxuries. Besides the fabulous state-of-the-art facilities, the hotel is all together posh with a vine-draped stucco edifice, a polished lobby with light-wood furniture, a peaceful ambience, elegant rooms, and the exceptional Polaris Restaurant with an ever-changing menu of fresh international delights. All 68 rooms are fine indeed, many with vaulted ceilings and a private outdoor terra-cotta tiled patio. Units also boast elegant floor-to-ceiling French doors, oversized furniture, handsome draperies, and European fabrics. Granite-and-marble bathrooms boast Geranium-mint bath salts, a television speaker, and deep-soaking whirlpool tubs - a hot commodity in modern hotels.
