In order that its neighboring Guggenheim did not remain as a simple anecdote, the project took in the activity in the area, not only offering the confort of a luxury hotel but also a sample of the best design in the XXth century, prolific in the creation of objects and furniture.

The different areas of the hotel (rooms, cafeteria, night bar, lecture hall, entrance hall, lounges, atrium and terrace) were designed as independent spaces with their own character, which will form the hotel complex but without diffusing, allowing the more public areas to be open to the city and not only the guests.
