Unfortunately this was a poor experience - took three of us an hour to check into 3 separate rooms - because each of us had a different price charged for our room by the registration computer. The receptionist was confused and it "took forever" to sort out. However, we insisted on the lowest price ($85.00) even tho' we were very tired and just needed to get to our rooms and sleep - so this was a bad start to the stay. We wanted to find another hotel - but we're told that we would be charged anyway - so we were "trapped". The original cost was outrageous due to a youth convention in Louisville - $102.00 - not including tax - per night. Even given the fact that we ended up paying $85.00 per night, this was still high IMO for very basic rooms, small bathrooms, thin towels, meager soap bar and shampoo. One of our TVs did not work.
The noise made by the young people - banging on railings, running along the balcony in front of the rooms went totally unchallenged by the hotel and led to two very disturbed nights. One of our colleagues went to a hotel a mile or so away and paid $65.00 a night - for better quality in a recognized name hotel.
