While the room is quite spacious, I would NEVER have stayed at this hotel if I knew about the "motion detection" on the heating and cooling! Unless the sensor detects movement (which is, of course not happening at night while sleeping) the AC will not stay on!! To sleep comfortably in a hotel, my family likes the air to feel cool...around 70 with no humidity. The system in these hotel rooms revert to a balmy 73 degrees and will kick off (except the fan) if no motion is detected!! Because only the fan is running, the air becomes extremely humid and almost feels wet! While I understand the energy-saving issue with this during the day when no one is in the room (which is what guest services informed me of when I called to inquire), I cannot understand how this would not be an issue with more people who are trying to sleep at night! Unless you manually get up and reset the thermostat every half hour or so ( which is what I ended up doing because I was unable to sleep in this hot room), the sensor senses no movement and kicks into "energy-saving mode". Although I did read this on the disclaimer on the wall of the room when we checked in (that the air might feel more humid than normal), I didn't realize what it meant until I felt it, unable to sleep because I am sweating!!! This is definitely a deal-breaker for my family...and trumps any other nice amenity that the hotel offers. I am uncertain if this is a policy at all Homewood Suites hotel, but I will definitely be checking from this point forward and will not ever stay in one with this option ever again!,!
