The Octagonal Suite is between the Mahogany Room and Satinwood Suite. As there is no door leading from the atrium into this room, it can only be reach via either of the above.

There is ornate timberwork in each curved corner of this space.
A window faces west onto George Square and another north onto George Street.
A door leads south into the northwest corner of the Satinwood Suite.
