The exterior design of the hotel originally consisted of arches and cornices reminiscent of traditional Indian architecture. The hotel appointed SRSS Architects to redesign the building's exterior envelope. The new design was thus modified to include a palette of polished granite, metal accents, Indian Jali screens, and custom light fixtures featuring Indian motifs. The interior were designed by DiLeonardo Hospitality Design.
