Great place, but don't stay near the lobby
Posted Nov 14, 2016
I would have given The Kirkley five stars, but our room was just off the lobby very near the elevators and ice machine. Our first night, people were talking very loudly between midnight and 2AM right outside our door. They were literally yelling down the hallway to each other. Honestly, the room was great, the staff was great, everything was clean. I also really appreciate that they put out little signs in your room about small things, like how to best operate the shower and stuff.
We stayed two more nights, and I put a blanket under our door and turned on white noise. That made things much better.
If I were to suggest anything to management, there should probably be a quiet, sliding doorway between the rooms and the lobby. Also, I'd suggest that someone put out a nice sign around 10PM or so that says something to the effect of "Please be quiet...guests are sleeping" near the entrance to the room hallway. The first floor is just a little too noisy.
That being said, I would definitely suggest The Kirkley to friends. I would just suggest not staying on the ground level near the lobby.
