At first glance this place is very interesting. Minimalist and modern lobby, lots of glass and open space and interesting art work. The novelty ends there. We had an Urban Suite, supposedly. According to the website the Urban Suite has a Bath Tub and a King size bed. The first room we were taken too had neither, a double bed at best. The room was an interesting concept; however not very functional, especially for one who may appreciate a bit of privacy. The Bathroom had a whole wall that was frosted glass, the other side of that wall is elevator lobby where EVERYONE walks by. Though the glass was frosted it's still pretty easy to see anything on the other side. The "headboard" for the bed is a glass box which has a toilet in onside and shower in the other, not much for bathroom privacy, especially in the toilet area. The large window by the bed look directly out onto another rooms large terrace, again not much for privacy.
In addition to the odd design elements which are not very functional, there is no closet, a double bed, and the room was a mixture of many patch work maintenance jobs with mismatched paint everywhere. I include pictures in my review. We called reception and they found a room with a King size bed available, still no tub but at least it was a larger bed. This room was better; however, still highly lacking in the details that make a hotel luxury like this is supposed to be. The pillows (With no pillow protectors) were so cheap that you put you hand on then and it literally goes right through tot he bottom. There were lots of random loose wires and cables about (The wall sconces had the wiring running up the outside of the wall, absolutely no windows in the room, which is painted dark blue with black carpet and the TV stopped working halfway though the night. It got to the point where is was actually farcical.
The design at first glance is very interesting and is a great show piece; however, it is not at all comfortable or functional and no where near worth what the prices are.
