(Click here for another view of the Damascene or Syrian Room.)

Entirely Syrian in its decor, the Damascene Room serves VIP lounge for visiting VIP's. Its focal point, an elaborate marble fountain overflowing into a series of pools lends the soothing affect of gently rippling water. Seats line the walls offering guests the full effect of the room

Thick stripes of indigenous stone in yellow, black and white form the walls. The colored stone sets off the painted wooden relief ceiling. The intricately inlaid floor is as smooth as glass.

No detail has been overlooked here. The brass planters carry out the arabesque design. Even the sprinklers and smoke detectors have been incorporated into the arabesques to retain the aesthetic harmony of the room.
