Bonus: There Are 6 Beehives Atop the Roof Deck

More than 300,000 bees in six active hives make honey on a rooftop deck twenty stories up. When beekeeping in our city became legal in 2010, the hotel enlisted a full-time beekeeper who set up the hives and extracts the honey used in the hotel restaurants. The hives have been removed while the hotel is under construction, but they will return when it reopens in 2023!
