"make sure your room is facing the interior parking, not the East Colorado Bld"
"Rooms on the top floor face the mountain and have good views, and won't get any noise from the car park."
"quieter rooms probably on west side of hotel."
"Ask for a quiet room. Top floor away from the street as its right on a very busy road."
"I liked the ground floor, rooms starting with 1. 115, 116 etc."
US$95 - US$185 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
