This is a new concept hotel that focuses on being green. Very sparse furnishing in the rooms (curtains instead of walls and doors within the suite, no doors on the kitchen cabinets, etc). It was a little different, but clean and comfortable none the less. We had a one bedroom suite and it was very spacious and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom towels were plentiful. Since the hotel is environmentally friendly, there were no disposable glasses in the room and the shampoo and bath wash were in big dispensers in the shower instead of individual containers. I'm glad I brought my own toiletries as I would be a little uncomfortable using communal soaps. Also, I felt the need to wash the glasses before we used them. I've seen too many documentaries where the maids didn't clean the glasses in the room!
The breakfast was minimal and closed promptly at 9am (even on the weekends). At 9am on the nose they pull a curtain over the breakfast buffet line and shut it down. You can't even get a yogurt or muffin after that.
The hotel staff was pleasant as we entered and left the hotel. They were helpful when we needed things.
Overall, it was a nice hotel, just different from the traditional suite hotels we've stayed at before. Not too crazy about the curtains and "ultra green" concepts but not enough to keep me from booking again.
