Part of the redevelopment includes a 13-storey tower attached to the main church building. The majority of the guest rooms will be located in the tower, whereas the main building serves as the entrance and and lobby lounge.
The four-star hotel now features 185 rooms including 10 duplex suites, a rooftop pool and cocktail bar, main restaurant Tailors led by chef Gabriele Grisolia, six meeting rooms with a capacity of 520 people, and a gym with Technogym equipment.
