The sleek exterior facade, designed by Chicago's Eckenhoff Saunders Architects, will feature a stunning 28 foot high clear glass curtain wall offering passersby views of the goings-on inside the dana. The striking ground floor entrance will be anchored by an undulating timber wall, providing a soothing backdrop for a two-story fireplace and Dana's two primary dining offerings AJASTEAK, a contemporary Asian steak house and sake lounge, and the Dana's signature floating sushi bar.
An artful juxtaposition will balance the beauty of these natural elements with state of the art technologies, including free high bandwidth internet connection and Wi-Fi capabilities; a 37 inch HD flat screen television, and European Smart Digital cordless phones (with all local calls complimentary). Of note, the dana hotel and spa will be the first hotel in the world to provide Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin audio equipment in guest rooms; the Zeppelin a 2007 Rolling Stone top pick allows a guest to sync his or her MP3 player, providing an ultra high fidelity outlet for your personal soundtrack. A centerpiece of the dana hotel will be its full floor dana spa and fitness center, accessible to both hotel and non hotel guests, for pampering and polish. Some six treatment rooms, including one strictly for couples, will offer the latest in relaxation techniques, including some exclusive to the dana. Its environment will be soothing, serene, and sustainable, to boot. Designed with materials including bamboo bricks and recycled glass terrazzo flooring. An adjoining private 24 hour fitness center will feature the Italian Technogym line of fitness equipment, including an entire wall of Kinesis cables, plus client comforts such as individual MP3 docking stations and televisions; a yoga stretching area; and yoga mats, pilates balls and hand weights available for in-room use.
