"Ask for a room where you won't get any noise - if they have any."
"If you get one on the first floor you don't run the risk of getting stuck in the lift"
"Not sure about the accessibility. This place might be difficult for people with small children or a wheelchair."
"ask the desk clerk for a room that offers a nice view of the Yale campus architecture"
"I stayed on about the 4th floor on the front side of the building and it was fine."
