Even check-in is streamlined; a staff member armed with an iPad will take care of the details as you sit in the lobby and take in your posh surroundings.

As for the rooms, Andaz has a wide array of guest rooms and suites. Each well-appointed abode feels modern and loft-like with sleek furnishings and high-tech amenities, such as flat-screen TVs and sounds systems.
