Though varying in size, all have high ceilings, plush carpets and curtains, Art Deco-style furniture, TV, phone, safe, Wi-Fi internet access and en-suite bathroom. They are equipped with air conditioning and sound proofing. Rooms are arranged over all 3 floors of the hotel.

The hotel has a ground floor sitting room that opens on to a glass-roofed patio, and a roof terrace on the third floor overlooking Plaza San Francisco.
