After a transatlantic flight, I spent one night at the Ballantyne before my return flight to Philadelphia. I chose the Ballantyne based upon TA reviews and the hope that I would find a nice hotel with a quality restaurant and clean & quiet rooms. I'm pleased to say that the Ballantyne met most of my requirements. I was super impressed by the facilities, restaurant, and the staff. The hotel was elegant and the rooms were spacious, clean, and well decorated with very nice bathrooms. After a very good meal at the restaurant, I was off to sleep. Unfortunately, I did not get a great sleep because the door was not "air tight," causing light and noise to enter the room. I could deal with the light... but I was definitely disappointed that I could hear everyone who passed through the halls during the night. I kind of expected a better night sleep in a Starwood Luxury Collection hotel. Additionally, the toilet in room 608 requires two flushes after each use. Overall, it was an OK stay but I expected more from a Luxury Collection hotel, especially given my SPG Gold status.
