Starwoods Elements knows their business travelers need. When showing up late in the evening, its calming to arrive to a clean and well-balanced property , from the lobby to the bathrooms.. a zen experience that is much anticipated after stressful travel., Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 0504Traveller Very nice eco-friendly hotel
This hotel brings "together an eco-friendly environment with overall wellness…where guest can enjoy free breakfast, an evening reception and free internet access” The rooms were spacious and well-laid out, the beds were also spacious and comfortable, there was enough lighting in the rooms, the free wifi was fast and really responsive, and the free breakfast was pretty good. All this in an eco-friendly atmosphere made the stay all the more relaxing. There are only two negatives I would say about this hotel – and both have to do with the location. The hotel is located in a newly developed area and there are shops and restaurants near the hotel, but they are about a 2-3 minute walking distance --- this is fine during the day but at night there are very few lights. That was my second negative, which was the road to the entrance of the hotel is not lit at all – the hotel is located on a one-way so if you are coming from the opposite way you have to pass the hotel and go down into the undeveloped section to make a u-turn to get to the right side of the street on which the hotel’s entrance is on – and that section of the road has no lights and is completely dark during the night. As I said, those are the only two negatives as the rest of the experience inside the hotel was positive. Once you walk inside the hotel, on the right-hand side is the check-in counter. Beyond the check-in counters was a little pantry to buy snacks and beyond that was the elevators. Across from the check-in was the dining area where the free breakfast is served (the breakfast was decent. There were standard items available that you normally would get as well as some unique items like egg, spinach, and mushroom on a toasted English muffin – but I did expect healthier or organic options and those were limited). As you walk straight, there is a lounge/sitting area or relaxing area where you can also enjoy the free wifi. To the left of this lounge is the business center which has access to two computers and a printer (during my visit, only one computer worked and the printer was not working). Beyond the business center is the meeting room. On the other side of the lounge/sitting area was the fitness center – which was spacious and had a nice array of machines – and a path to the outside which had an outdoor pool as well as an outdoor sitting/bbq area. Check-in was smooth and efficient and I was given my keys as well as a detailed explanation of the hotel and its amenities (which was good since it was my first time staying at the hotel). I took the elevator to my room and when I opened the door, I thoroughly enjoyed the room. I had requested a room with 2 double beds so this is how my room was laid out: As you open the door, on the left were big closets (in an ikea-style design) which also contained a safe. On the right was the bathroom which was very large and had a waterfall-style shower or hand-held shower. The bathroom also had a low-flow toilet, low-flow sink, as well as refillable pumps for the the amenities instead of individual size toiletries (maintaining the environmental aspect throughout the room). As you walked further into the room, on the left was the kitchen which was again ikea-designed and was quite big. There was a very big fridge, a microwave, a sink, a stove, dishes and glasses, and pots and pans. There was also two barstools and a little area to sit and eat at the kitchen. Across from the kitchen was a desk/console combined into one. This separated the bedroom from the main area. The desk/console was a full desk that was extended to include a TV as well as a converter to plug in various devices and shelves below the TV. The beds were quite comfortable and spacious and there were plenty of outlets near the beds and throughout the room. In addition to the two beds, there was also a sofa that was very comfortable and could also turn into a sofa-bed. Overall, it was a GREAT stay in a spacious room with comfortable beds. The wifi was REALLY strong and fast both in the rooms and in the lobby. It was a great stay in a place that is good for you and good for the environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Diana69 This hotel is clean
I stayed at this property twice now and both times my room and bathroom were clean. It may sound like that should be expected when you check into a hotel but that is not always the case, Some properties, the bathrooms especially are filthy.
Breakfast is also to be mentioned. The quality of the breakfast and the dining area are very good. I would stay here again and would recommend family and friends to stay here.

we personally booked 4 rooms for our son's wedding- between family and friends we had over 20 rooms booked. The staff was wonderful at getting the majority of us on the same floor. The shuttle driver, Cliff was so friendly. The front desk went out of there way doing everything from putting emails into word documents ( for wedding speeches) to making literally dozens of replacement keys. At every turn we found the staff excited to be playing a small part in our son's wedding. Of course we LOVED our heavenly bed, the rooms are very large- which was instrumental when organizing all the decorations for wedding events. I highly recommend Elements- it was our first time staying in one and we couldn't have been more pleased- a superior value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Munna Room Issues
I booked 2 rooms under two different reservations but when we were at hotel ready to check in I was told I can only have one room since we are over booked. Surprise which I was not ready for. After 2 hours waiting in lobby I went back and asked one more time "do I have 2nd room available now" and the gentleman from back office came to help and got me a 2nd room "thank God!"
The excuse was "we have some issues with our computer system" not a valid excuse for a platinum SPG member.

Was awoken at 2:45am our first night to a domestic disturbance next door. Sounded like the arguing was right inside our room!! The night manager addressed the situation immediately, and in the morning was moved to another room without delay. Adjoining rooms do very little to buffer the noise from one another, which is one of several physical deficiencies of the hotel, but the staff addressed it to my satisfaction. The breakfast bar in the mornings is very good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trip2CFam Very comfortable stay but customer service could use improvement
I'm spg gold status and hoped to get upgraded on arrival - neither that or my gold award was offered on check in, nor was going green even tho I was staying for 3 nights. The first room we were put in was incredibly damaged - the security bolt was ripped off the door, the fridge had dents all over it, the furniture was damaged, and the phones didn't work. Staff transferred us to the room next door which was identical but had less wear and tear. We then found out there were no upgrades available, which is fine. The bed sheets were a bit dirty so we had them changed but other than that everything was great and our next three nights were enjoyable. The bed was extremely comfortable and my fiancé is a tough critic! There's also an Alamo Drafthouse less than half a mile away which made us very happy :) overall good hotel just had a bumpy start.

I actually live in the area and stayed at this hotel for me and my Wife's anniversary. I showed up early to have presents staged in my room and the Ladies at reception were very courteous and helpful which made for a memorable anniversary.
