We stayed at The Padre on a Friday night. It was my husband's birthday, so we splurged a little for the room and also made reservations at the Belvedere Restaurant on the first floor. We arrived at 3:30pm and was told our room was not ready, to come back in 30 minutes. We left and came back at 4:30pm. We valet-parked the car and carried in our luggage. Unfortunately our room was still not ready, so we had a drink at the bar because it was happy hour. We had 6pm dinner reservations, but knew we had some time. Finally, our room was ready at 5:15pm. We had reserved one of the nice corner rooms, and it was lovely. We had a great dinner that night, but went to bed early as we had a long drive the following day. As soon as we layed our heads on our pillows, we started hearing the music. It went until 1:30am! There is a nightclub across the street and they must have been having a great time because the band or DJ never stopped for more than a few minutes at a time! I would not recommend OUR room on a Friday or Saturday night, but during the week it would probably be wonderful. Or, if you like to party, go for it! Just thought I'd write a warning, because we had not read this anywhere else.
