The Bad
While the majority of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about noise transfer and the prices.

Some guest complained about noise transfer during their stay. They reported being able to hear guests in the hallways and adjacent rooms, as well as from in-room heating units and the pool pump outside in the early morning.
