I have stayed at this property 4 times now and probably will make this my last visit. There are many things to like about the Element. They serve a wonderful free breakfast and create a real sense of community in the lobby. Hotel rooms have an HDTV, big couch and full kitchen. The hotel practices many green principles, so its nice to see the environment being cared for in an operation that consumes resources.
Despite the likes, I really come to a hotel to sleep. The hallways are very loud and on both nights, I was awoken by people talking in the hallways and doors closing. Soundproofing doesn't exist. The climate control makes an awful clicking sound as it comes on and the vent pushing air sounds like an airplane. It blasts freezing cold air until it kicks off the thermostat. Then it makes a clicking sound to turn off. This occurs all day, all night. Lastly, the shade the covers the windows allows alot of light in. I keep forgetting all these drawbacks when I stay here, so perhaps writing a review will share this experience to other travelers and serves as a reminder for the next time I stay here.
