I travel all over the country for my job and have never had an experience as simultaneously great and awful at the same time. I've stayed in at least 75 hotels in the last 4 months. This is the first one I've felt the need to review.
The hotel is among the best and classiest I've stayed at in its price range. The lobby/first floor area is downright beautiful. The rooms are spacious and decked out with modern technology :(or at least ours was) jacks to plug your laptop into their gorgeous 42 inch hd flat screens, more than enough conveniently located power jacks for every gadget you may have brought...even a dvd player, something I've probably only seen at one other hotel.
The room we were supplied with was clean, the beds incredibly cozy, and all in all, the early part of our day led to the best afternoon nap I've had while on tour.
However, around 12:30 am, when I decided to try to go to bed, the misery began, and I'm writing this review in bed as we speak.
It's not simply the noise that is keeping me awake and miserable. It's the reverberations. I can not only loudly hear but actually, physically FEEL the steps and movements of every guest, next to, below, and above me, while I'm lying in bed. It's more than unnerving. Every door that opens or shuts, every time they turn on a bathroom fan...everything. It travels straight through the paper thin walls/ceilings and rattles me. It is utterly awful, but honestly I see no suggestion for a solution that I could offer.
I've never been a light sleeper before. This is bar none the worst sleeping experience I've ever endured. I'll be going to work in the morning with VERY little shut eye achieved. I don't know how they could reinsulate the walls and/or ceilings here, but honestly this building itself is worthless as a hotel in its current sound amplifying state.
I'd ask to switch rooms, but it's 2 in the morning and I have to be up at 5:45 anyway.
