Traveling with my 11yo son. We went to the children's museum during the day and needed overnight accommodations. We booked via priceline auction and our bid of $60 was accepted. Front desk check-in was quick and friendly. We asked for a room by the pool and received a room right in the middle of the hotel, next to the pool. Perfect for us. Noise was a bit loud -- pool was crowded, but it closed right at 10pm and we were in it ourselves from 8:30-9:30 so it wasn't an issue for us. The spa had quite a bit to be desired, looked very dated. (the main reason that I gave this hotel a ranking of 4 instead 5) We did not hear the trains at all. I liked the uniqueness of the hotel. Wish I would have walked around a bit before we checked in, to see what the train cars were actually like. (they are on the 2nd floor). I would have probably asked to stay in one of those, however with the priceline bid not sure if that was an option or not. Lots of restaurant options within walking distance. Parking is not included and a bit pricey. However we found on street parking and did that. Room was very spacious (except for the bathroom), beds were comfy and room was clean. Free internet in the rooms as well. Also, breakfast is not included at this hotel. I would recommend staying at this hotel.
