I would rate this as a 5 but I don't want to mislead people either. This place was definitely very clean and modern and would we stay there again, maybe. I think people should be aware of the excessive noise and make a decision if that is important to them or not. Granted, I knew I was staying downtown and there would be noise (I would assume other renting downtown would also be aware). The issue I had is that the apartment was very close to a music venue that I believe was piping music to the outside from 9 pm - 12:30 AM on Thursday night. I could hear the actual lyrics to the songs being sung. Once asleep, I then was awaken from 1:30 AM to 4:30 AM by the leaf blower across the street. The attendant to the ramp across the street was "cleaning" the ramp with a leaf blower (yes it took them 3 hours to go through 7 floors). I don't know if this is a weekly, monthly, or once a year activity but would be nice to know (especially if you plan on staying on a Thursday night). Since the windows are only double pane, again the screeching sound of the blower kept me up those 3 hours. Now, on Friday and Saturday night, it was what I would call "normal" downtown noise plus a little more because it was close to the music venue but had no issues. Had I known about the excessive noise on Thursday night, I might have brought ear plugs or chosen another place. As I said previously, the place is really nice so now that I know what to expect, I might stay there again. It is all about setting the expectation and I think it is important to let other potential renters be aware of it as well.
