The Hay Adams is a beautiful, historic hotel with a great location and old-world charm. Our family of 4 shared an average-sized room with 2 queen beds. Although we didn't have a view, we didn't mind, as we were only there for one night. One thing you never think about with old hotels, though, is creaky floors. And boy, did the floor creak (and pop and screech) even when I tiptoed on it! We were in our room and getting ready for bed at around 11 pm. We had each just finished using the bathroom, preparing for bed, when we got a somewhat rude call from the front desk. The people in the room below ours had called the front desk and said we were being extremely loud. I said to the woman on the phone, "I don't think it's us, we're all in bed!" Then I realized that if I had been on the floor below us, I would have thought that we were having a dance party with all the noise that the floor made as each of the four of us walked to and from the bathroom! It would have been nice to have gotten an apology the next morning, but what can you do? So the moral of this story is: book a room on the top floor and hope no one stays below you!
