We love the hotel. We've stayed here 3 times and the staff have always been great. The rooms feel spacious and usually have great views. The restaurant and bar are great, It's close to University district shopping and Neptune records is just across the corner (if you are into music this is a big plus). We had dinner via room service one night and it was delicious. We really do love it here.
I knocked off one star because this last time our room was hot for the whole 3 nights. It was hot when we arrived so we set the temp to 60- as low as it would go, and the fan on high, but it stayed hot in the room day and night. The temp control apparently has no effect. I had no temp gauge to tell what the temperature really was but it was too hot to sleep muchof the night. It was not so bad that we had to call the desk. I'm sure they would have changed rooms for us, because they did it once before, but it was bad enough that I want to warn folks here. We were on the 10th floor and the windows were screwed shut. It was bad enough that I forced one open a little and shoved a plastic fork in the gap so that a little breeze of cool air came in and when we couldn't sleep we could go over there and cool down. That's my only complaint. Next time I will bring a phillips screw driver with me and open a window or two. My suggestion would be for the hotel to change the windows a bit. I'm guessing they screwed them shut to prevent suicides, but now the rooms get so hot you want to jump out even if you are not suicidal. Just change the windows a bit so you can open them an inch or two and the problem would be solved. Or connect the temperature control to something that actually influences room temperature.
