"Presidential Suite with large soaking tub"
"Rooms overlooking the plaza have the best view and were quietest"
"I stayed in a suite with a living room, and bedroom. It was great because I could put my daughter to bed. We had a great view of the city."
"Ask for a view of the Plaza, especially during the holidays."
"Ask for the side looking out over The Plaza. The Christmas lights are very nice and the summer music on the front lawn is very nice."
