I did not like this place much at all and would not recommend it to anyone unless you get off on "saving the planet" as an uber greenie.
LEEP certification means this: No comfort or convenience.
Yes the place is nice. Yes it is in a great location. Yes it has nice amenities (spa/restaurant/bar), yeah, yeah, yeah. For $200.00 plus a night you expect that so I won't belabor the point. Look at my pictures.
What you need to consider is this: with all that "green" bs you get no pressure and only sporadic heat in the shower. I mean, it came out in cups not gallons. And aerated at that! Give me a break. I need a shower man, not an exercise in trying to get clean. And I want it to feel good. Not here.
The walls and doors are so "green" that I could here every bucket of ice get filled at every hour of the night and it was located around the corner and down the hall from our room. Great.
The bathroom "door" is a framed panel of glass on a barn door sliding mechanism. You had no "aural" privacy at all. And no fan either. Not comfortable at all.
They don't have any kind of business center at all. They offer one (ONE!) laptop at the front desk and wi-fi is $10 a day. Why no more computers than one? "It saves electricity" said the desk clerk. Real green man, real green. Convenient? Not.
Once we called down and asked them to call for a cab for us. "We don't call for cabs but will get you one when you come down" Upon arriving at the lobby and asking the desk clerk what the deal was with the calling of cabs I was told, "We don't call for cabs here. They won't respond". Really! That's exactly what I was told!
I'm sorry, I just won't recommend this place. Not when the Paramount next door looked so good.
