Hotel Features. Splendidly colored murals in the hotel lobby depict the mythical Himalayan kingdom of Shangri-La, and Venetian chandeliers and Italian Statuario marble floors reflect a European gentility. Classical music in the afternoons and light jazz in the evenings have made this impressive area a popular meeting place among the local crowd.
Victoria Harbor offers a magnificent setting for many of the seven restaurants, which offer everything from Italian to western cuisine.

Wireless Internet access is available in public areas, and a 24-hour business center and extensive meeting facilities can also be found at the hotel.
