We stayed for three days in lovely water view rooms. The rooms were clean and well equipped except they could use a coffee maker. The location of the hotel was ideal - within walking distance of almost everything. Staff were very willing to shuttle us to and from more distant mansions.
The problem we had was with loud music filtering into our room. The first night we called, and they gave a reply which seems to have been a standard reply. "This is a trendy hotel". We finally determined that main source of the music was a speaker just outside our door that played the same "trendy" music that was playing in the lobby. I tried sleeping with a pillow on my head but did not sleep well that night. The next morning the manager said he would take care of it and we were provided with free breakfast but told we should realize that this was a "trendy hotel". We explained that trendy doesn't mean noise in our room to keep us awake. The second night it was a bit lower but we managed to sleep by downloading a sound machine on our iPad. Sometime during the night, the music went off but it was back on bright and early. The third night we used our sound machine again.
We think the hotel was lovely but consider a quiet room for sleeping a necessity unless the noise is coming from a busy city street and cannot be controlled. This was coming from the hotel. They did lower the speaker a bit but we continued to have noise in our room.
