Liked: Cleanliness
The property is really a wedding hall. When the weddings are going on its loud everywhere. We were unable to sleep at all due to people up talking and partying around us until 6 am. There should be noise rules and someone to enforce it so other guests can actually sleep there. The walls are thin on top of that so noise is an issue anyway within your room.

The George is in an excellent location near restaurants, shopping, museums, etc. Scott the concierge was excellent helping us navigate the City and obtain taxis. The hotel is historic, the rooms are a bit small but very clean. The restaurant and bar areas are not very inviting partially due to there location in the hotel.

We were settled into our room and wanted a larger room. Habiba was the person who helped us with our change. She was most personable and professional and welcoming. She immediately found us room 313 and , as result , we loved our stay at the hotel. She is a great staff member.
