Romantic Valentines Weekend

Our room and property were very well appointed. Upon arrival we were informed of the quiet policy that’s unforced after 11pm. Our room was the 1st room off the lobby. At 11pm we were abruptly woken up by a loud group of people, this went on for 30 minutes. I contacted the front desk and was informed that the desk clerk was having difficulty quieting the drunk group coming from a Wedding. The manager apologized in the am for the inconvenience and offered a room discount and 25% off a future stay. I felt this was well handled and will return!!
