"Some rooms overlook the kitchen roof, so if a view is important to you make sure to request such."
"1st floor at the front have big windows with the view (2nd floor only attic windows). Request room away from internal security doors."
"Ask for a room on the front of the hotel and away from security doors"
"Try get a room away from any internal security doors. I think the noise of the door opening and closing may be a issue at busy times."
"worth it to pay extra for the view"
