So I’ve read reviews where they don’t really like it because it’s old. That’s not the case for me because I thought my room was so cute. It was like being transported to back in the day. One thing to note is that there’s no mini fridge or freezer but that was no problem for me because they had an ice machine. I picked a room without the street view and I heard the light rail passing by a few times. I’d say the noise was kinda soft. The shower head wasn’t really staying in an upright position so it would go down so I had to stand right underneath the shower head. If I had to stay in Phoenix again I’d consider coming back here again.
