My wife and I have stayed at this hotel some six times over a period of five years - usually in December. We have often encountered noise problems as a result of the many weddings and groups that this hotel books. Usually we get through these situations ok as we like the location, the beach, the rooms and the staff. However our most recent stay was over the top. We were at the hotel 12/4-12/8. In advance of our stay, contacted the reservation mgr and specifically asked for a quiet room on a high floor away from the elevators. On arrival, spoke again to the desk staff and was located on the 5th floor and assured a quiet stay notwithstanding several weddings and parties. The evening of the first wedding, we found ourselves being "entertained" for 3 1/2 hours where the noise was so loud, couldn't hear the room television. The next morning we were moved to a corner room on the 7th floor and once again assured a quiet stay. That evening we were "entertained" with what sounded like furniture being moved above us til midnight- which turned out to be people in the "wedding suite" on the 8th floor. Unfortunately the Hilton has a practice of booking multiple events which ignore the rights of other guests. If you want peace and quiet - stay elsewhere!
