We booked this hotel for our wedding weekend. After booking online 3 months before, we were a bit disappointed in our room. I had requested a quiet room because there were train tracks nearby. We didn't imagine that close. When we arrived, we found out we couldn't have a room away from the tracks because we booked online - the Grizzly room (queen bed). They are only located on the noisy side! I wish they would have notified us earlier. I would have changed hotels. The front desk told us we should have called them directly. What? Then don't allow special requests on your online booking unless you can actually fullfill simple requests. If you can't then notify the booking party. The hotel was packed for the weekend so we couldn't switch rooms. The train rumbles through the night about every 1 1/2 - 2 hours! Unless you are a heavy sleeper there is no way you can get any sleep. I was extremely tired for my wedding. The Grizzly room is just a plain queen bed...no beautiful pine frame. The free breakfast was OK. Would have been nice to have muffins, bagels, or oatmeal. We would not stay at this hotel again. There are nicer and quieter places to stay for the same price.
