The Bad
While the majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive, there were a couple negative comments that were repetitive. These complaints mentioned the noise levels at night and the smoking rooms.

Some guests were disturbed in the night by large groups staying in the hotel and gathering in the hallways until after midnight. A couple of guests also complained of being able to hear guests in adjoining rooms taking a shower, or running water, which disturbed their sleep.

A few guests booked non-smoking rooms and were given smoking rooms. When these guests asked the front desk about it, they were told that non-smoking rooms are not guaranteed and must be confirmed before arrival.
