We decided after a lovely stay with the Bay Club to return a little over a year later. We booked online for the expensive room that we wanted & my husband followed up the booking with a call to make sure that the room indeed had a wrap around balcony. We arrived at the hotel a couple of weeks later to be told that we could have that room for 3 nights & then would have to move to another to accommodate a newlywed couple that booked it for the remaining two nights of our reservation. WHAT?! We asked how that was even possible. We were told that we must have booked at exactly the same time as the newlyweds. My husband asked why if we are there & in the room for 3 nights must WE be the ones to be moved? Why not move the other couple? Well they didn't really know but that is how it was going to work out. They gave us a complimentary upgrade & when we saw the room I recognized it immediately as the same one we had a year ago. Its not a bad room, but it has a Juliet balcony & there were three of us so that means standing room only. We settled for that room because the others we were shown were simply too small for 3 adults. I still cannot fathom why our reservation didn't take precedence. Room 274 is a nice location but at night the nightclub next door at Humphrey's plays very loud music until 1030pm on the weekdays. We had to close the windows & turn on the AC just to drown out the noise. Otherwise the rooms are adequate, the furniture is becoming nasty with old stains & the convertible couch was all lump & bumps & worn out springs. Some updating needs to take place.
