    After reading through several posts, I think we'll try the Plaza for October trip. So far, I've found that I should request the South Tower for a room. I have a few more (OK, several) questions, hoping someone can answer...

    Should I request a high floor or does it really not matter?
    Any noise from the trains like at MSS?
    I saw mention of a coupon book upon checkin. What do the coupons get you?
    Will the pool be open the first week in October?
    I looked on the Plaza website for a floor plan map...Does anyone have a link to one?

    Sorry for so many questions, but just trying to do my homework. Plus I know I always get such great information from all of you.

    Thanks for any input.

    I don't think it matters what floor in South Tower for noise, as I have stayed from 6th to 21st and never heard a peep. The coupon book varies, but usually has discounts at Hash House, free round of golf at Swingers Club, discount at Cafeletta. Also have seen it with 2for1 cupcakes at Gigi's, free chips and salsa with $7 or more at Zabas Mex grill, 2 for 1 footlongs at Subway with drink purchase, 2 for 1 tickets for Best Little Whorehouse.

    Unlikely pool will be open, but not sure.

    Never have seen a floorplan map, and couldn't find one to link for you. Extremely easy to get around. Two towers with lobby in north one, casino and restaurants in between, Oscars in dome, fitness center bingo and hair salon on upper level of casino.

    If you don't like the FSE noise then I would stay in the south tower facing south. You can also see the strip that way too. I usually like the higher floors to get a good view, facing south you have a view of the plaza parking structure, while not noisy or anything I would rather not have the parking structure in my field of view.

    I also stayed in the south tower facing north, I had a nice view of the pool and tennis courts but I heard the FSE noise from their concerts (lots of times there is a stage right at the end of the FSE and it gets noisy). This past january there were renovating the GG and so woke me up at 7 am with their pounding and noise (even though I never opened my windows I heard the noise). Not sure how it is now though.

    I am not sure if the pool is still open at the beginning of October, you need to check with the plaza. I don't remember noise from the trains but I'm sure there probably is some noise. If you take a room closer to main street you may not hear the trains that much (but you may hear traffic and sirens).

    One hint, if you drive a car, park on the 3rd level of the parking structure. While the parking structure has an elevator, the 3rd level goes directly into the hotel. There is a walkway ramp and you can get to the south tower elevator without having to take the parking elevator to the 1st floor. The 3rd floor also will take you past the fitness center, the hair salon and bingo room and you can get to the north tower elevators without having to traverse the casino on the 1st floor. Another plus is that you can avoid the security guards, on the 1st floor you are supposed to show your room key to get to both tower elevators. While the north tower isn't as rigid the south tower most of the time has a guard and you have to show your room key card.

    I just checked out of the Plaza, and had a room on the 21st floor facing North, right above the pool. While I could hear the music from Fremont st, it wasnt loud or bothersome. I could also hear the trains, but again, not too loud or bothersome, and they seemed to quit around 11pm, at least that was the last I heard them. They are done with the Golden Gate construction. On Friday night there was a great fireworks display at Cashman field that I could see perfectly from my room. It was a full scale show that lasted about 15 minutes or so. It was cool because they were about eye level.....

    In case he doesn't see this post you might want to message DonD [who is one of the board moderators.] He is our resident expert when it comes to the Plaza and would be a wealth of information to you.
