Stayed in the Superior Room for 1 night. Room was clean and lavish with amenities. Didn't get a nice view room to comment much. The hotel is situated very strategically being walking distance to most of the popular tourist spots.

As long as you are on the port side, there is no noise at all from the clubs. The Clubs are just opposite the main entrace in front of Bank Of China. So just make sure your room is on the port side.

I'm not sure. They do have a family suite but not sure how many it holds, but I'm sure they also have connecting rooms. I would suggest emailing the hotel directly to inquire.
