I had occasion to spend two days in the Chandler area and arrived at the hotel early, looking forward to having a nice lunch on the property and take advantage of the whirlpool. I was told if I checked in before 2:00 there would be a $35 early check-in charge. this started things off on the wrong foot and I ended up spending that $35 off site for a nice lunch where I was welcomed.
I had requested a quiet room on a high floor and was pleasantly surprised to fine they had reserved a unit on the 4th floor in a room away from the parking lot. It was particularly impressive to note a sign on that floor pledging that they wouldn't have cleaning carts before 10AM and wouldn't book families (i.e. noisy kids) or travel groups in that area of the hotel. The rest of the afternoon was enjoyable and peaceful. That ended at 10:30 that night when I was awakened from a sound sleep by kids laughing, screaming and running up around outside the room. I called the front desk and she apologized and asked if I wanted to move to another room?!? Really? She even said, "Oh, them." when I mentioned the kid noise.
The room balconies in this hotel surround three courtyards that are near-perfect echo chambers. Combine that with doors opening to outdoor open walkways and it's difficult, if not impossible, to buffer noise. I value my sleep too much to stay here again.
