This could be a nice hotel, but right now they are working out the bugs still.
When I was there for a short business trip, one elevator didn't work for part of the day, and a few odd difficulties appeared that were minor annoyances. However, service was very good and the hotel personnel were clearly trying to make it work. Rooms are good sized and clean.
One odd moment: the hotel agreed to participate in a one-hour "lights out to demonstrate commitment to the environment" one evening. This is a very bad idea, as dark hotel lobbies are not good places for visitors to walk. I actually went outside after a while, where I could at least see the ground in front of me. You might want to ask them if they are having any other "demonstrations" like this while you are there, especially if you thought you paid for a well-lit lobby!
