some background – me and SO took our first vacation together this long weekend! it was a quick one, just two days and one night. this is pretty much my only “fun” vaca until next calendar year bc i have to use all my vacation days on medical procedures/appointments and the like. so this relaxing time is very important to me!
yesterday me and SO checked into our hotel, and at the same time a large group of young people also checked in. they were chatting loudly and it became evident quickly that they were here for a wedding (they were in the wedding party). some of the party ended up in the room next to us. fast forward to the night… me and SO wanted to sleep so we could enjoy the second full day of our vacation (today). but at 2am i woke up to REALLY loud music, drunken rowdiness, yelling, the whole nine yards. we called the front desk no less than FOUR times to get them to quiet down, and finally the front desk finally called the police at 4am to come and tell them to quiet down or leave (after trying to come by and quiet them down).
i am super annoyed. this was our one vaca, and i think i deserve to have a good night of sleep! i cant believe how inconsiderate that party was; i understand weddings are AWESOME and so much fun but there might be other people trying to sleep next to the hotel block! this morning, they started playing loud music/talking loudly/making pounding noises at about 8am – so i got a terrible nights sleep. me and SO both feel so crummy that we’re going home early, and not finishing today’s day of vaca. i am so bummed out. we won’t have another chance for a vaca until maybe this summer due to my health issues/scheduling… and some rowdy wedidng party just ruined it.
to make matters worse, i can hear them through the wall right now talking about “assholes that called the fucking police on us last night”
im really tired, feeling cranky, and bummed. sigh. just wanted to vent

There was a wedding at our honeymoon hotel. You’d think I would have been more understanding since we had just gotten married as well, and believe me, I tried to be! But all I wanted was to relax and forget all about the stressful wedding planning. After nights of the hotel staff knocking at our door at 1 a.m., because they were not sure which room people were smoking pot in, and the entire wedding party occupying the hotel pool, getting drunk and doing cannon balls for an entire weekend, I was ready for that wedding to be over!
I totally understand your disappointment, especially since this was your only vacation for a long time.

You need to complain to the hotel staff. Maybe you could get a night for free. It took them all night to reslove an issue with unruly guests. I don’t know what their policy is, but when we stayed at a Trump hotel in AC we had unruly neighbors. We complained to the desk and they explained if they have to contact the neighbors twice, they’ll contact the police and they’d be asked to leave the hotel. Whether or not that was totally true is another story as they stopped being loud after the 1st complaint. But you should certainly let the hotel know how unacceptable last night was.
Sorry your vaca ended so poorly. I hope you still get to enjoy your last day. Inconsiderate ppl suck!

@claireos: agreed. i would not pay for a sleepless night. i would complain to the manager and demand they do something to rectify your miserable experience.

@claireos: I agree, I would try to get a resolution from the hotel. Its not their fault, but any decent hotel would try to do something to make up for it

thanks everyone, i asked FI to try and argue with the hotel staff to get a free night. i never usually try to push issues like this (such as sending back bad food, etc) but i am so cranky and miserable right now that i think ill do it anyway.

That blows. People have no consideration for others. The last time I was away, at 3am while DH and I were sleeping, some drunk asshole started banging on our hotel room door yelling “Scotty, lemme in!” over and over. When my husband told him nicely to f-off, he proceeded to take the party out into the hallway for another hour. The hotel did nothing.

I would complain to the hotel , once while staying at a hotel the alarm wasnt reset from the previous occupant and it woke me at 4am – I got my entire night comped because of that disturbance. I simply re-read them the sign in the washroom that guaranteed a great nights sleep..ect.ect.
ETA – I just read your post! good for you 🙂
