But what impresses guest the most is the amazing food – it is the ultimate foodie choice for visitors!

It has attracted a stellar list of international clients and over the past year has hosted the Heads of State, CEOs of World Aerospace and the top executives from Fashion Avenue New York, King of Pop Michael Jackson.
