I will start by saying that our stay at the Hawthorne was great. We stayed in 610, so there was not any traffic noise. The bed was very comfortable. The room wasn't large, but there was a desk, two chairs, and enough room to lay out the luggage. They only provide one towel per person, but I am sure they would give you more if you asked. The staff was very polite and helpful. The location is ideal, as you can easily get into town and to all of the sites in a few minutes of walking.
We did experience something odd immediately after turning off the lights around 11:00 p.m. There was a VERY loud sound in the room which made both of us sit straight up in bed. We thought someone had opened up the door, but no one was there. The door was closed and no one was in the hallway. We looked around the room to see if something had fallen, but nothing had. The only way we could recreate the sound was by swinging the metal safety lock open really hard against the doorframe (the kind that hotels use now in place of the chain locks). It kind of freaked me out, but I didn't feel threatened. I guess they just wanted to get our attention??!
