If you are a light sleeper and end up with a room facing the freeway, the traffic noise is continuous.
The black out drapes offer no help, they don't close. When I finally got to sleep, the industrial strength AC unit came on and woke me up.
I asked for a glass of Chianti at the bar. Waitress said don't have that. But it was on the menu? She was a bit huffy when I asked about it again. Not a pleasant experience.
The rate for one night was $195.00. Too much for a bad experience.
