We stayed at the Olsen on the Sunday night of the long weekend on the 8th floor. Having read all the good reviews we were looking forward to a relaxing night away from the kids. Unfortunately we would have had more sleep had we have stayed home. It was very very noisy many many times through the night and it was very smokey to the point we both woke with sore throats. The reception staff were nice through out our stay but when we told them about our bad night their reply to us was why didn't you call us and yes we had some trouble on the 8th floor last night they were young and the hotel is non smoking someone must have been smoking through the vents. I didn't want to stay somewhere where I would have to be making calls to the reception in the middle of the night complaining about guests which was why I chose a boutique hotel
