I've stayed at this hotel before and loved it. However I've never stayed in the summer. As an ambassador member I was upgraded to a suite but shocked at the room temperature. The hotel has floor to ceiling windows causing the rooms to bake. I was shown 5 different rooms all of which were extremely hot. The A/C does blow cold air but it can't cool the room down. The hotel would not let me check out without incurring a one night penality. They did give me a $50 credit towards Shula's steakhouse, which was $8 more than the cheapest steak! Housekeeping brought a fan 4 hours after requesting. The bed's do not need comforters or even a top sheet because it is too hot! I checked out after one night and cancelled all future reservations. The bellhop and the maintenance man told me many customers complain about the hot rooms in the summer. Management is obviously aware but don't care. I should of known something was up because I only paid $104/night.
