I did extensive research on tripadvisor prior to booking a place in Georgetown, but still, i failed myself :( DISAPPOINTED. Will NEVER ever return to this place.

That being said, what is stopping you from trying out some other hotels and posting your review about your stay here for the benefit of all other trip advisor visitors?
Call and mention that you are a light sleeper (even if you aren't) and ask for a room that is fa...
