Let's start by stating that this appeared to be a charming boutique hotel with a lobby filled with stained glass. From the reviews we had read, it looked light a great place to unwind after a day’s skiing. Oh, how wrong we were.
Come midnight, the hotel turned into party central. On almost every floor, it appears, the locals had descended on the place and decided to continue their celebrations well into the night. Our neighbours arrived just after midnight and couldn't help but share with us through the walls all the sounds you don't want to hear from the room next door. Yep, the walls are paper thin.
I phoned the concierge from the lobby (which is unattended out of hours) and asked for another room away from our inconsiderate neighbours. She was happy to do this and informed me that I was not the first to ask to be relocated that night. In the end, the noise was all too much for us plus my wife was subject to unsolicited verbal abuse from another guest as we shifted rooms. Come 3am, we had had enough and decided to head home to SF.
The concierge apologised for the noise and the abuse my wife had received did say that she would contact Expedia and have them arrange a full refund. We never received the refund nor heard from the hotel.
Bottom line, look elsewhere and maybe even outside Placeville. This boutique hotel isn't worth it. We won't be staying here again and advise others to stay away.
