This is a hotel with a club on the top floor. If you stay in the hotel on a weekend (Friday, Saturday) don't expect a quiet sleep until the club shuts down in the middle of the night (3 AM, 4 AM?).
The rooms themselves are comfortable enough, some of the staff is friendly and helpful. But we arrived on a Thursday at 1 PM and our room wasn't yet ready. We walked around the neighborhood and finally got into our room at about 2:45 PM. Hard to believe it took til that late in the day to turn the rooms around.
Though the room rate was seriously discounted from "list" (and we prepaid the bill for this), this is our first and last stay at this hotel. How could anyone expect that at 3:15 AM Fri-Sat the drumbeat a few floors above us would be unabated while reverberating through the walls as well as outside. When we called the front desk at about 1:45 AM, we were told that (a) the club/lounge is a separate entity, which the hotel doesn't control, and (b) the beat would subside after 2 AM. Ha! It was after 3:30 AM when the music stopped and dozens of people started tramping loudly down the 8 flights of stairs.
That was last night (Fri-Sat.) Tonight (Sat-Sun), at 12:30 AM the music is going again. When will it stop? We spoke to hotel personnel again tonight and they informed us that there have been ongoing negotiations to resolve this -- including a plan to add sound proofing to the lounge/club. But that does us no good at present, and the construction of this hotel does not seem to be amenable to totally dampening that noise. So the club and a hotel are in this case incompatible uses. Of course they could tone down the music; that, too, would help.
Without the club we might recommend this hotel because the rooms themselves are comfortable and tastefully appointed. With the club, forget it. We're not coming back.
