Nice Hotel but we had a problem

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by a traveler from on April 14, 2009

The Hotel George was a nice clean hotel with large rooms. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was conveniently located. I was there with my husband and 2 kids(ages 8 and 11). It was very convenient to have Union Station a block away. They have an amazing food court which was great for the kids. There were also some great pub type restaurants around the corner. Some people in other reviews I read mentioned about the homeless people. I have to say we saw very few and the few we did see did not bother us at all. My biggest problem with the hotel was the construction next door. I feel when you are renting a hotel room you should have the right to a peaceful nights sleep. If the hotel knows of any reason why that would not be possible then I feel they have an obligation to tell you in advance. We arrived late on a Friday night(almost midnight) and were shocked and surprised that at 6AM(no exaageration) Saturday morning there was banging on the building being built right outside our hotel room. My kids were woken up with only 6 hours of sleep and needless to say our Saturday was ruined before it even started. When I went downstairs to complain they could not move our room because they were sold out. They are supposed to be sending us a complementary night but that was of little concellation for all the noise we had to put up with. The Hotel was well aware of the problem because they assured me that Sunday would not be a problem(and it wasn't) but the banging started 6AM sharp again on Monday morning. I would not stay again unless promised to have a room far awary from the noise.
