Best Rooms: Generally, rooms facing the pool area have the best views -- if you can get a direct view of the pool; this view is available in a variety of room categories, on all floors. Otherwise, you'll be looking out towards a parking lot and a neighboring apartment building.
Best Rooms: Even-numbered rooms face the parking lot, while odd-numbered rooms face the street -- and guests actually seem to prefer the former view. Rooms ending in *02, *04 and *06 (e.g. 104, 206) have views of the small pool as well.
Best Rooms: Given its location near the airport, there isn't much in the way of views at this hotel. That said, even-numbered rooms between 224 - 232 and 324 - 332 enjoy pool/sunset views and balconies.
