The property also features a concept called No. 33, billed as a hotel-within-a-hotel accommodation able to host up to 24 guests. The No. 33 space includes a combination of several suites and six additional bedrooms, with a dining room and drawing room also available for entertaining. According to Kimpton, the "homelike" offering is ideal for groups, special events or private weddings. 

A variety of dining and drinking venues are onsite, including the brightly-lit Garden and Baba, a restaurant showcasing Levantine cuisine and shared mezze-style dishes. The hotel's Baba Bar hosts a social hour daily.

Other property amenities include free fitness and wellness classes at the gym and in-room yoga mats.
