Noise from adjoining rooms is terrible. Might as well be in a hostel dormitory.

We booked months in advance but got accommodated in a room with a noisy compressor that continued to turn off and on all day and night long. We were not given an alternative room due to the hotel being full. The following day we were very tired and had slept poorly. Even upon asking polity we were offered no discount concession apology or upgrade the following night not even a free breakfast. This business has lost our good Opinion.

Overall nice stay the adjoining door to the next room was the only hiccup it allowed noise to get through. We had noisy neighbors 1 night out of the 4 we were there so was lucky in that respect. Would definitely stay there again but would ask for a room without the adjoining door. Other than that noise it was very very quiet no road noise from King St at all. Very clean and got clean towels every day.
