Thin Walls, Loud Everything Else
Posted Feb 4, 2017
Nice place overall, with very nice accommodating staff. Room was spacious and had nice furniture. A lot of nastiness could be found behind things and underneath them, but most people won't bring their own ethernet cable and try to extend their hardline internet reach directly from the in-room router tucked behind the TV.
Oh, the TV service, btw, sucked. Channels would go in and out, and there's a dearth of good movie selections, which is common but still surprising to me in this age of on-demand. In-room wifi speeds also left a lot to be desired (hence my rummaging around for a hardline connection).
Biggest issue was how loud our room was. There's a door that separates our room from the people next door, and there's about a three inch gap underneath that door, which is crazy and really erodes any feelings of privacy. I could both hear, AND SMELL, everything the people next door were doing. Not cool.
I requested a quieter room my second night, which did not have the same joining door with an adjacent room, but the place was still loud. The acoustics are terible in general, everything echoes, the door latches maker a really loud "bang" and "KALAC K!" when they're opened and closed...sorta sucks. Next time I stay near SFO, I'll likely check out another hotel.
