I've lived at Sutton Place for 3 years now, and have never had any problems. Compared to some other places I've lived when I was in college, this place has been great. I travel often for work, so I always worry about the security of everything, but that's been fine. Only problems I've had have been students that live there that tend to be somewhat noisy speeding up and down with their cars. But that's why there are speedbumps.
I think some of the bad reviews on here have been from students that often make too much noise or have problems with management. The management has always been great with me and very friendly. Considering what they went through on the x-mas day tornado I have nothing but complete respect for Sutton Place! Hence why I still live there!
