The lobby and public areas also feature all new décor and a full renovation has been completed at the snack bar with Mexican-inspired design elements. The restaurants, El Nopal Buffet and Il Palco Italian a la carte, have also been completely redone with all new décor, high-end flooring, and beautiful paint schemes.
