The floor below the lobby is, as Deleerious mentioned, free for anyone to wander, but you cannot then get up the stairs to the lobby level.

I found out through two separate occasions (two years apart!) that you can't just go into the main lobby of the hotel itself, unless you are a resident or have a restaurant reservation at one of the places within the hotel building. My mum was curious to have a look, but was left disappointed both times.

Bread Street Kitchen, for example, is inside "The Avenues" annex of the complex (alongside most of the other Atlantis restaurants) and not inside the hotel building, so eating there will not allow you to pass the security guard into the hotel. If you want to go into the main hotel building, you have to pick the restaurant which is inside the hotel itself, such as Saffron or Ayamna.
