Following the update, the hotel's owners, Skyline International Development, and Omni Hotels began a $7-million restoration of the hotel's 17th-floor Crystal Ballroom. The room hosted events in the 1920s, and has 12-metre ceilings and now new floor-to-ceiling windows offering views on three sides of the city. It’s been closed since the 1950s.
