When I made this reservation, I though that it would be nice to upgrade to the Parlor Suite…It sounded nice and the pictures looked nice as well. Once we got there we were given two separate keys, for our two separate rooms..? Apparently when you reserve the “Parlor Suite” all you are getting are a higher floor room with drywall work being done and two adjoining rooms. On their website they really make it out to seem like it is something special..not worth it!
My fiancé and I went out for the night and got back around nine, when we got to the room we could hear all of the drunk people across the street yelling and screaming, we both agreed that it was still early and would probably stop soon.. NOPE! It doesn’t, ever! Its constant yelling and arguments outside of the bar! On top of that if you look out the window for more than thirteen seconds you will see a cop car more than once patrolling the area, my guess is something happens quite frequently at that bar…That’s comforting!
Finally, once we fell asleep which was nearly impossible, around 3AM someone was knocking on our door so loudly it was scary, when I say knocking I mean slamming their hand against the door so hard the picture on the wall was shaking. Then once I yelled at them to stop, they yelled back wanting me to let them in! Obviously the person was drunk and lost and his friends came and yelled at him as well. Regardless it was not the best way to get woken up in the middle of the night. Why even bother trying to go back to sleep. And if you try and call the front desk you can plan on waiting for it to ring three hundred times before someone answers.
I will say that out of the entire trip the only thing that was good was when I contacted the manager and told her what had happened, she was very accommodating and sincere as well as apologetic. Overall, it was the worst stay, I truly would have slept better in my car outside of an insane asylum. The location is the worst possible, the food was equally terrible and the cleanliness is absent. The staff seems to be the only good thing here.
