This hotel is not worth $310/night. The aesthetic is odd with something very off about it. I appreciate the environmental consciousness, but, as others have noted, design comes off as (at best) Ikea- lite. Furthermore, I've never stayed at a "luxury" hotel with (such bad) art on the wall--with price tags! Tacky. The lights drove me crazy. Could not figure out how to get a light to stay on (or off), so reading at night required getting up and waving at a motion sensor every ten minutes or waiting ten minutes for unwanted lights to go off. My "harbor view" was mostly of a desolate parking lot. It is also strange for a "luxury" hotel not to have food available before 10 AM (on Sunday). Luckily I realized this on Saturday and purchased some yogurt, etc. But eating out of a take out tray is not what one expects at this level. Could also not regulate temperature, so room was uncomfortably hot, and the alleged "high speed" internet didn't work at all; couldn't download anything on either my phone or tablet. "Amenities" in bathroom consisted of shampoo, conditioner and soap--not even some body lotion to counter dry room. I changed my plans and left as early as possible in the morning. The one plus were the two staff members who were quite friendly.
