While on tour with our group in Malaysia, we spent several nights at this hotel. Great location for visiting all of the Georgetown area. Quiet and had a view of the port. Breakfast included but I would eat elsewhere for lunch and dinner

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.
