In total, the 103 guest rooms and suites, starting at a special opening rate of $505 per night, feature sliding glass walls, outdoor fireplaces, and private infinity pools. Specialty suites starting at $2,000 a night include the Grace Kelly Suite and the Presidential Suite, which offers private dining for 10, a chef’s kitchen, study, great room with a grand piano, and private pool set in an intimate Spanish courtyard.
