"Get a room with a fireplace and/or jacuzzi tub!"
Read review
"The 4th floor was in the middle and very quiet."
Read review
"if your room faces the street you may encounter some street noise but it does quiet down by midnight."
Read review
"The street noise goes to about 10:30 PM (or later) so ask for a room away from the street."
