If all that pampering has helped you work up an appetite, head for the Aria restaurant.

Back in your spacious, sophisticated room, relax in a cosy robe while you admire the views of the city skyline or the canal. Or perhaps have a nightcap first at the Gentleman and Scholar Pub with a grapefruit and almond fizz.
