We knew in advance that there was a loud bar across the street as we had read other reviews, but were still surprised to find out just how loud it was. We were on the 2nd floor directly facing the bar which I don't think helped - we arrived late at night and originally thought that the windows were open... nope. Thankfully the ear plugs that the hotel provided were fantastic and made the noise seem like it was down the street rather than directly in front of us. We stayed for 3 nights (including a Friday night which the music continues until 03h00-04h00). We were able to sleep, but I'm not sure everyone would be able to. Our 2nd floor king bed, mountain view room had neither a king bed, nor a view of the mountain - it didn't bother us in the end, but apparently higher floors give you at least better views. Breakfast is good, you could order both a cold and hot plate with generous portions. I was slightly disappointed that they changed the towels in the room given the current drought situation even though I had hung them up to be re-used. The room was clean, and the bathroom was huge and beautiful. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Overall, if you can sleep easily or you want to party on Long street than this is a great hotel for you and is conveniently located, just be aware that the reviews about the noise are really true. =)
