Visit Victoria often on business, and normally stay at the Royal Scot, not the best hotel in Victoria perhaps but the combination of location, cleanliness, and a great inhouse restaurant made this a nice place to stay. That was until I stayed in the dreaded room 240, it sits over the driveway separating the parking lot from the main entrance. Every diesel truck that leaves and enters passes under your room, and this seems to be a popular mode of transport for the guests, creates a small earthquake effect with full sound effects. (perhaps in preparation for future, more serious events in this part of the world). Since there is no air conditioning or room fans windows have to remain open in order to get any sort of air into the room. I mentioned this to the hotel day manager who indicated that my concern was duly noted but I somehow remain unconvinced that anyone else will not suffer the same fate.
This room is also next to the elevator shaft creating a more low level but distinct vibration. And did I mention the walls in this room are paper thin and if there is nothing on TV you can be entertained by your neighbours since you can hear their every word. (or even worse)
Will I stay here again? Maybe. Will I ever agree to stay in a room facing the parking lot. Never!
