Spent a week night over the road at the Garden Court and the weekend at the Protea. We had to move rooms twice (broken TV and smokers fumes) but was fairly wel handled. Reviews about the thin walls are not overstated and you do hear Gateway's noise. Pool deck, tiny, but dramatic - unless there's wind. Good shower, good bed. And the afford is above average. On the whole, the Protea and Garden Court are fairly similar experiences...but the former has bigger rooms and the latter is quieter.
