5/5 Excellent

We had a room on the second floor that turned out was just a few doors down from where they serve breakfast in the morning from 7 to 10. The problem was a good deal of noise from people coming and going starting at 7am. However, when I called the front desk to ask if we could be moved due to the noise, they absolutely took care of us. Our second morning was quiet that we really appreciated. I'm not taking away stars because of the polite, professional, and helpful response given to me when I called down with the problem.
