I am an extremely light sleeper and I was so worried about the train noise, it was no problem. Slept through the night. Next time I may ask for a room facing the trains. They gently ramble by and they are very cool. There are a few things that make this room special. It has a door to the outside which would be great if you have pets as it faces the cottonwood grove. I liked it because you can directly to the outside without having to go through the lobby yet you are still within the compound so you feel quite safe. The room is in the "old" room wing. I noticed when walking the hall that most of rooms have a step up to the bathroom. The Betty Grable room has more of ramp. Lastly it is fitted with jet tub albeit a very small one, but still great.
The ambiance of the hotel is very relaxing. It is what you make it. There are so many places to linger and enjoy. I tried to imagine what Mary Coulter was trying to express by putting a garden wall here or a library there. Treat yourself and experience it at least once. It's an incredible value if you appreciate fine architecture. Maybe I'll see you there as I will certainly be back.
