My husband and I recently booked for a weekend away.We saw the great pictures online and felt this would be a perfect spot.We were booked into a balcony room and were very disappointed with the amount of street noise coming from the public on a Friday and Saturday night.The hotel is a suitiated a block away from a community housing apartment aswell which all lends to the amount of people hanging around the front of the building at night.We asked if we could change rooms to the back of the hotel but were told this could not be done as it was all booked out.We were offered a small bottle of wine, a 20 dollar gift voucher and mini bar snacks to make up for the upset.Frankly this didnt suffice as what we would of expected was a refund or two complimentry nights stay to make up for two sleepless nights, overall a disappointing experience.
