The logo reflects the architecture of this hotel designed by John Portman and DP Architects. The 'M' represents the hotel's atrium and curvilinear facade, while the turned up ends convey a touch of Chinese calligraphy The inverted 'M' symbolises the reflected image of the hotel as it is near a waterfront.
