Too loud. Our first night our room was directly above a bar called "Wet Willies" which features every kind of slushy mixed with alcohol imaginable, as well an outdoor sound system and screaming drunk patrons till 2 in the morning when I could take it no more and got our room switched.
The second room was quieter, but there was still plenty of screaming late into the night and we had the pleasure of some drunk teenagers who were looking for a party in a nearby room mistakenly banging repeatedly on our door at 1 am.
On the plus side, the hotel is lovely, the staff very helpful (no surprises when we asked to change rooms), and the appointments of the rooms great: plasma TV, robes, individual hot tub in each room. We did have problems with the TV working, but they got it fixed.
I ended up buying earplugs just to get through the evening on our three night stay, but I still felt like Elmer Fudd in that cartoon where Daffy Duck is the hotel manager and keeps waking him up. My eyes weren't that bleary, but they were close.
To be fair, the neighborhood is not the hotel's fault. Even driving up to get to the valet parking was a scene out of a frat movie with drunken folks wandering in the street.
I picked the hotel based on the positive travel reviews on this site, and while I've been very happy with other hotels I found via tripadvisor, this one was a severe disappointment, and I hope that if noise is an issue to you, that you read this review.
If you enjoy late night partying every night, then this is a great hotel. If you're older, and just want a quiet nights sleep, do not stay here. The savings are not worth it.
