The door did not seal around the edges and I was so incredibly cold both nights. Heater was weird, only a thin blanket on bed. Looked nice but ended up being a pretty awful experience, especially for $400/night 😵 would absolutely never stay there again.

Thanks for reaching out. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced with your room. We will look into the heating and insulation immediately and again, we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience. It was an honor having you and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

3 out of 5
Pros: Extraordinary staff
Cons: Heat control
Location: too much to mention-lovely neighborhood, access to frequent public transportation, great outdoor sitting area-cabs are scarce-plan ahead
Wonderful!-accommodating staff-arrived late and they were kind, and ordered a cab and offered breakfast. Room impressively minimalist while providing all of the accommodations of larger hotels. Overriding issue-ice cold room on a chilly night after a freezing plane ride-thermostat required a manual, so I froze-most of my negative ratings apply to this one, small issue.

We love our staff and are happy to hear you do too. Sorry to hear about the challenge with the heating controls. We are installing Wifi thermostats in those rooms shortly. We will work with some local cab companies to ensure we have quicker service in the future. Thanks for all your comments!
