Translucent blue AZURIA(R) glass by PPG provides one of the hotel’s signature design flourishes while it helps reduce energy use by bathing guest rooms, offices and meeting space in natural light and reducing reliance on artificial light. With visible light transmittance (VLT) of 61 percent and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.39, Azuria glass deftly balances daylighting and solar control.
