We booked the Rare View (the rooftop lounge at the top of this beautiful hotel) for my 30th birthday party. We turned the entire rooftop into a private event. First and foremost the view is stunning, and provides great scenery. Michael, and Erin helped address every concern that I had. I was concerned about the cold, and they made sure that heaters were installed. The rooftop already has a glass top atrium for protection from the rain. Rare allowed us to bring in our own dj, champagne and sushi chef. We were allowed to put our own video clips on the tv's. All of our guests were really impressed with the place, and we look forward to having more parties at this wonderful place. The staff was extremely nice, and provided us with excellent service.
