Upon stepping into the premises, one would find an absence of the traditional reception desk at the entrance. Instead, guests are required to check-in on level 5.
As I was booked into the Executive Suite, it offers privilege in priority check-in and check-out at the cozy Traders Club Lounge situated on the 32nd floor. According to Traders Club Lounge Manager Sina, the lounge is also the place to start the day with complimentary breakfast, afternoon cocktails and refreshments.
