We spent Columbus Day weekend here to celebrate our 10th anniversary and had been looking forward to a nice quite getaway without the kids for some time. When booking the room, I specifically asked if the room would be quiet and was given assurances that it would be. It wasn't. On our first night, we discovered that the hotel runs a night club off the rear of the main building and we endured techno thump until 1AM. We complained to the front desk but no action was taken. (We would have moved to a different hotel on Saturday but everything in town was booked.) The manager assured us that the music would be better on Saturday night, but it really wasn't. My wife and I had to sleep with earplugs in but even that didn't work. Adding insult to injury, at 4AM we were woken by the constant sound of chairs scraping hard wood floors. This lasted for about an hour - must have been someone sweeping/mopping the floors in the restaurant below us.
One other chafe was that they don't have coffee makers in the room, or coffee in the lobby in the morning. Starbucks is 1/2 mile away.
Rooms are really nice, views are great, and location can't be beat. For $1000 per night, I exepect to be able to sleep. I don't think that is asking too much.
