Did not hear it from my rooms when I’ve stayed there. Could it be the pounding of the surf? The staff is very gracious and knowledgeable. They would assist you with a smile. Hope you moved your room or had your problem solved. It is a wonderful vacation destination.

"Sea view as high as possible"
"Try to get ocean view. Other side is still good but ocean view would be prime spot here."
"A water view room is a MUST! Amazing location right across from Lido Key Beach."
"Great Views"
"Higher up east overlook city, parking lot & famous St. Armand's circle. West side rooms face Gulf of Mexico, beach & sunsets."
