In addition to the guest rooms and suites, the hotel features CEO Gary Friedman's private, 2,600-square-foot penthouse residence that will sometimes be available for guests to book, the company said.
The hotel has an in-house restaurant called The Dining Room on the main floor and a champagne and caviar bar in the cellar, according to the release.
The hotel has been "designed through a lens of privacy and luxury," Friedman said in a statement. On its website, for example, it asks guests to "refrain from taking photographs or posting the property on social media."
