Boutique hotel near laneways

We stayed for 2 nights. First night we had construction noise outside our room and it kept me awake most of the night and construction started up full blast at 6 a.m. I asked for another room and Laura at the front desk set us up very well! Her thoughtfulness was amazing and she was very apologetic about our uncomfortable 1st night. Hotel is in great location. There is no bar or restaurant in hotel and meeting place in lobby is very cramped, but staff was great and rooms were clean. Hotel has a fun boutique-y vibe to it and they supply some snacks and even beer in the room fridge for free.
