The main building, the 38-storey Fuente Tower 1, is one of the tallest hotel buildings in the country at 140 meters (460 feet). It is likewise the tallest building in Cebu City and the country's tallest building outside of Metro Manila.[2]

The top floors of the hotel tower feature an amusement facility which includes a roller coaster that runs around the edge of the building, and a stroll around the edge of the building with the protection of safety harnesses.[3]
