The hotel was beautiful & the rooms were n icely done but it was very noisy. We were on the second floor & the street noise was ridiculous into the early morning hours. Even though the rooms were great the fact that there was no carpet made for lots of noise from surrounding rooms and lots of slamming doors. The doors are not the hotels fault but I think carpet would have added another level of sound absorption. The surprise parking fee of $20/day was disappointing. However it was a beautiful hotel.
