I know its a nice wedding venue. Hell I wanted to get married there. But in the summer there is a wedding every thursday, friday and saturday. So? Well the entire hotel gets monopolized by the wedding party. That means the nice quiet atmosphere in a retro shabby chic hotel is gone. The quiet cozy Brown Room hotel bar is overflowing with groomsmen and bridesmaids getting sloshed at 5pm. The Boiler room jazz bar in the basement is jam packed at night with drunken wedding goers at the end of the night...there's an occasional puddle of puke in the mens room. If your room is on the floor above the lobby...forget about sleep...the one man piano man performance is blasted to a deafening level volume in the bar so you cant hear yourself talk all the way in the lobby. I'm 33 by the way...I like to party. This is a bit much. And they kick you off the patio just when you wanted to sit in a rocking chair on a late afternoon and read your book in the shade after a day on the beach...so they can have the wedding procession and cocktail hour. They sold out. Plain and simple. Oh...and the 4 night minimum is absolutely ridiculous. Wifi never works.
