The 263 bed 5 star hotel comprises a classically proportioned Peter St. block formed from the retained grade 2* Victorian facades of the former Free Trade Hall. This block houses the reception and fine dining rooms to ground level and winter garden bedrooms, meeting and function rooms to upper levels. The cleared site to Windmill Street allowed a 15 storey contemporary bedroom block to be constructed, principally clad in stone and glass.

A dramatic lightweight triangular atrium, using glass purlins and minimal lightweight trusses, provides a unifying structure between the two blocks, allowing the individual architecture and functional identity of both blocks to be fully realised.
