This is a brand new hotel. Within the past month, in fact within the past week, the hardwood floors were polyurethaned. They look lovely. Very shiny. However the fumes from the toxic overlay have not aired out. Fumes are flammable and often cause headaches. My husband is allergic to the fumes and becomes nauseous. We tried several rooms; all were still off-gassing. The customer service was polite and offered to air out the rooms with an ozone machine, which they explained would replace the air in the room. Alas, would not cure the shiny wood fumes. They alskisses kind and offered to find a hotel room for us in a nearby location . It was 4 pm Friday. Slim pickings. Weekend was really slam dunked into an unexpected dimension and became more of a hassle than romance for hubby and I. I wish this group of youngsters who are running this place all the best. But thier construction PM should have been on top of the scheduling and have had poly-Ed the floors 2 -3 months before opening. As is, most folks will experience a headache sleeping in off-gassing room with closed window. Please, if you have sensitivity, please be aware. Also gym/work out rooms were advertised but not ready for customer use. Most likely this place will be comfortable for those sensitive to chemicals 3-6 months from now ( may 2012)

The 168 rooms are residential in feel and decorated in his classic, timeless style. Each room is appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork. The soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces provide a fine gathering place to enjoy dining, drinking and socializing. ... more less
