Andaz is trying to make a break from traditional hotels, and this point is brought home early on, as there is no reception desk inside the lobby. In their own words, Andaz is trying to look more like a home than a hotel and their lobby is more like a luxurious living room.
In fact, this surprising uniqueness and casual luxury extends to each of the floors and of this Hyatt owned hotel. No less than six design studios had a hand in designing and decorating the 254 rooms and the 23 suites, and each floor is unique, in order to fit the taste of the guest. However, make sure you book your room early on as it can get quite busy and you might end up in a room that does not fit you personal style. That is not to say that your room will not be steeped in luxury, just that you might find yourself in room that is very different to what you might normally expect.
Five minutes after your meeting in the City has finished you can be back in your room relaxing, and seconds after that in one of the five bars and two restaurants housed inside Andaz, all designed to perfection, with immense attention to detail.
Although, it is not the place to go on your honeymoon, it is great for business trips and city breaks.
