English term or phrase: the lack of it
Size matters. Or in the XXX Hotel's case, . The 18-floor, 175-room Streeterville hotel works as a high-end boutique hotel. It has all the services and amenities of its luxurious neighbors -- the Westin, the Four Seasons and the Ritz Carlton -- and you don't need an elevator to reach the lobby.

How can I can make it sound natural? Tks!

(空间)的大小很重要。但是XXX酒店却没有考虑到这方面的问题。尽量翻译得自然,仅作参考。

Explanation:
(房子等)和大小有关系,(通常都是越大越好),×××Hotel的这个例子中,反倒是因为空间较小了更好,如果不是因为它的空间比较小,说不定就没有原本提供的那么好的服务或者设施了

Size always matters, its usually the bigger the better. or in ×××hotel's case, size still matters, but matters in a different way. It offers all this stuff in a reletively small amount of space. if it was bigger, it wouldn't be in the same place, like those other hotels. So, the lack of it (size) matters in this case
