The 2,780-square-foot James J. Coleman presidential suite sits on the 22nd floor and comes with secluded terraces overlooking the city and Mississippi River, Italian marble flooring and original museum-quality artwork. During your stay, you’ll also enjoy afternoon tea in Le Salon and a tasting dinner for four in The Grill Room (or in-suite) with wines paired by a sommelier and a decadent $90k dessert.
