No problem with the noise. But I had one of the mezzanine suites. Perhaps they have more sound proofing. I love the high ceilings. The bedroom is elevated rather than in a separate room, so those with children may want more privacy. I loved the huge table for spreading out items on. It would also be great for a business meeting. Staff was absolutely top notch. This is my go to hotel when I am in Portland. We walked to and from the Keller Auditorium. Breakfast was super, egg white omelet. Yummy.
