Have never stayed downtown, but visited last year and loved it! Had a few concerns. I heard the standard rooms are being renovated, which is great, but which rooms are facing away from the noise? I just wondered if it is worth it to book the deluxe room to be quiet or book the standard and hope for an upgrade when we arrive? Also, how are the beds here? Both of us have bad backs, so need at least a decent bed. Are smoking/non smoking preferences taken seriously here? We don't need fancy, but do want clean, quiet and a decent bed. Any ofther info would be appreciated on opinions! Thanks!
