when making a reservation online, how do you know if you're getting a new or old wing room?
I don't think you can. I would call or add "special request" comments to your online reservation.
I think the first answer said it all. It's much quieter over in the old wing, but there are some stairs to navigate. The decor is not fancy but the room was clean.
When making room reservation online, click "edit" on room type, on drop down you will see a box. In that box, request either new or original wing room. As an fyi...the old wing has better scenery...but, not available to an elevator...
