I was traveling with a group of 25+ people and the hotel knew we would be arriving late in the evening. As we arrived the front desk was staffed with one person. She.. while competent was assisting us one at a time and answering the phone from existing guests. Our group was large enough so that our line tailed out the door and into the street (on a rainy night). You would think that the hotel would plan and be ready to accept a large group and to get them into their rooms quickly and efficiently..no luck.
Upon opening the door to my room I found pillows scattered all around the bed and the bed linens in a nice folded pile on my bed. The first thought that occurred to me was...this is taking the whole green thing to another level..."not even use the bed sheets?" Then I concluded that my room has in mid cleaning but never got finished. If I had called to the front desk I would have been the inconsiderate one who was holding up my colleagues from even getting their room keys.
Internet - The router in this hotel works great if you are working at the front desk. My room had very spotty in and out coverage...it never did allow me to work.
Fire Alarm - After exiting the shower the alarm in my room sounded...piercingly high screech followed by a knock on my door. I was just out shower and the front desk person asked me if I had taken a long steamy shower...none of the mirrors was fogged so I pointed to the mirrors and windows with my answer of no.
Chocolates will solve it all - While I was trying to solve the internet problem the front desk person apologized for my room at check in. She then said the following, "We contemplated comping your room...but then realized you probably weren't paying for it anyway so we decided against it...no kidding!!!" Then she said so we decided to offer you this nice box of chocolate.
This hotel does have a good location and is pleasently designed (clean minimalist style)...but they have some issues that need attention. At $200 per nite they need to fix these up before I would consider a return visit.
