My wife and I stayed overnight on Friday evening, October 17, 2008 at this hotel. Around one o'clock in the morning we heard a lot of noise coming from the room on the floor above us. The noise sounded like many children screaming and jumping on the floor. We called the desk and complained. The desk clerk was alone so she called and requested that the guests in this room quiet down as they were disturbing the other guests. The noise however continued for another hour. After several more calls to the desk, the police were finally called. A bachelorette party was taking place. It is not clear why management would allow a party to take place in a hotel room on the fourth floor where there were sleeping guests. The group of people in this room were told by the police that they would be evicted if they did not quiet down. The noisy guests finally became quiet around 3 am. While checking out the next day, we heard that there were five other complaints from guests regarding the noise problem.
The bottom line is that there was only one young women at the desk for the overnight shift and there was no security availabile in the event of a problem. We were kept awake for about three hours that evening. This problem was not the fault of the person at the desk but management which did not have a security person to oversee unruly guests. We therefore would never return to this hotel again and would advise any of our friends from doing so.
