This hotel has a very interesting history. You can read about it on the hotel's website. The current incarnation is an interesting mix of old and new that occupies 2 separate buildings which are connected at the elevator area.
My upper floor room (a room with a number ending in 07) was near the elevator but I didn't hear it. I think my room was built partly in one building and partly in another as I walked uphill when walking across the room.
The things I liked about my stay here included the heater in the bathroom (I love a warm bathroom in the morning), the big fridge in the room, the comfy bed, the excellent room cleaners (thank you again Danielle) and the larger size of the room. I was there for nearly 2 weeks so I was happy that I had a sitting area with a sofa and a padded chair.
The things I didn't like included the lack of light in the room (even on the sunniest day I felt like I was in a cave), the noisy air conditioner, and the poor layout of the room. The room was basically laid out all wrong (the bed was placed in front of the big window and the sitting area was in the dark) but, most importantly, someone placed the corner of the bed frame and the corner of the dresser way too close to each other. Both of which have sharp points right at shin level. There was no way to get to the clothes closet without hitting my leg on one or the other (see my picture).
The thing I found to be the most odd about my stay here was the hotel's handling of a bathrobe issue. I would have given the hotel higher marks had this been handled better.
The issue unfolded as follows. Whenever I travel I always forget something, usually nothing major, but this time it was a bathrobe. I asked the hotel for one. I was quite clearly told that my room did not include a bathrobe. I decided to try a second time so I asked again. This time I mentioned that I was staying in the hotel for an extended length of time. I was again told my room does not include a robe. Being there as long as I was, I asked a third time. This time a robe was delivered without hesitation. Apart from this, I had a great stay.
I also had a great meal in the hotel's restaurant, Chez Boulay.
