And neither will you, if you get a room facing construction site or a room with a connecting door. We arrived in NYC on a red-eye flight, and took the first available room around noon. Once in the room, we were a bit surprised that we could hear our neighbours talking through the connecting door quite well. Tried changing the rooms, but the hotel was full, so no options were available till much later in the day. In the meantime, the neighbours heard us calling the reception and stopped talking. There you go - two rooms of people with no privacy.
After spending the whole day out, we returned to the room too late to switch it and went to sleep around midnight. To be woken up before 6 am with the noise of constructions outside. Next night the drilling noise started around 11pm and was going on till 1am.
Granted, the hotel has no control of their surrounding streets. Yet, nothing can substitute lost time of rest, and at the going room rate you can't blame me for expecting good sleeping conditions.
We had to extend our stay by one more night and were allocated to a different side of the building, without noise. After a night of solid sleep, we actually could appreciate the place we were staying in a bit better. Nespresso coffee in the room, wide range of amenities as a part of Hyatt complimentary list, breakfast with the view of the library. Yet, this hit-and-miss situation discouraged me and my travel companion enough, so the rating is much worse than could have been.
