Came into town with friends for the Jets - Jags game. We didn't experience any problem with the noise while we were in our room. I definitely heard that club rocking when we got back to the hotel Friday night, but once we were inside it didn't bother us. There is a freight train that comes by which we heard during the day, but again it never bothered anyone at night.
The hotel is very nice, we were all very impressed when we walked in. Nice, upscale lobby area, computer access which we used to print boarding passes going back home, pool table and a very nice seating area with a tv. The fitness facility was very nice, not huge but it was empty most of the time. And the breakfast area was also very nice, they fit Ian lot of tables but you don't feel like the people next to you are sitting on top of you.
Our room was fantastic. There were 5 of us, 2 couples and 1 single so the 2 king bedroom suite was perfect for us. The 2 bedrooms are very spacious, bathrooms also have plenty of room. 1 bathroom had a large shower and the other had a big garden tub/shower combo. The living space was nice, large flat screen tv, couch, chair, desk, and small table with 2 chairs. The couch pulled out to a full sized bed which I'm told was also very comfortable.
Free WiFi was great and hassle-free. Breakfast was included every morning and there was a good selection of warm and cold options. Took us about 10 minutes to get to the stadium and maybe 15-20 minutes to get to the airport. Great location for us. They even had a shuttle service that went to the stadium right out of their parking lot which I thought was a great option, even though we chose to drive.
Overall, a great experience. We had a great time and a big part of it was because we all stayed together in the suite as opposed to everyone getting their own rooms.
