Is the music on the porch loud and if you are in your room can you hear it. What type of music is it.
Some rooms on the 1st floor, like mine have windows right onto the wrap around porch so there is nothing between music and room. However, the music (not every nite by the way) stops at 11pm.

Is Elaine’s Walking Distance To The Town? Dog Friendly? Is There A Bus Or Train from NYC? Is one night enough for a little getaway?
A couple of minutes to town-about 3 short blocks. With so much offered, one nite is a waste in my opinion. Don't know about pooches. Check online for transport info

"Stairs are steep and narrow, but first floor is right next to the outdoor bar. You're going to have noise no matter what."
"Room 4 is great, with its private sun room and private porch."
"We stayed on the 3rd floor and our room had a queen bed as well as a separate small room with a twin bed. Private bath."
"definitely go for a room on the second floor"
"Our room, #2, was very small and we wish we would have chose a larger room."
