The French-Mediterranean,restaurant Blackstone Bistro -& Lounge named after the original, raw formation of a diamond – offers a selection of delicious locally sourced food and drink and is open to locals as well as guests to enjoy. The menu is served in an atmosphere that changes to match the city’s mood: from a relaxed breakfast and a lively lunch to the place to be seen at as the night unfolds. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the hotel so guests can keep up to date online or relax with their own music selection in the iPod docking station.
