Because of noise, got transferred to Aspire
Posted Oct 3, 2016
Upon check in, we were assigned room 201. After being in the room for a bit we found it was very loud. The room (201) was situated directly above the front desk and next to the grand staircase. You could heard everything from the people checking in to the people walking up the stairs. Sound also carried up from the lobby below; shops and a conference being held. So, I went down to the front desk and asked for another room. I told them I paid nearly $1000 for our stay and needed a quite room. First they were going to put me in a room next to one of the rooms on the tour, which would have been worse. I didn't want that one, so they put me and my daughter at the new Aspire Hotel, part of their property, right down the road. Our bags were carried for us to the property while we drove down the road to the hotel. Like I said the hotel is brand new, a month old I think. Very modern, quite and comfortable. The beds and pillows were a dream. We had a balcony and a Nesprso coffee machine. Other than that, though the hotel did not offer any amenities (frig, microwave, breakfast), you had to walk up the the Stanley. We were able to purchase a frig for $10 a day. All in all, it fit our needs perfectly. As a side note, probably overpriced as I've read in many reviews. If we ever visit again, I would try one of the many smaller hotels or possibly a cottage.
