I stayed at the Lord Elgin with a girlfriend in May 2011 when we were down for Race Weekend. My friend was running the full marathon, and myself the half. In 2010, we stayed at the Westin. While the Westin in cosmetically "prettier", the Lord Elgin's service is unparalleled. The staff were among the friendliest, and most helpful I've ever come across. Right down to helping me find a late night convenience store at 1am on Sunday night (and making sure to point me in the right direction!).
Neither my friend nor I had any issues with noise from other rooms or the hallways. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and have booked back for this year's marathon weekend. Looking forward to coming back!
