    I had previously requested buildings, 63, 63, 64, 15 or 16. Now I'm concerned that there might be bus noise at night and early morning. Has anybody ever stayed in these buildings and had a problem with noise from outside???

    Just to clarify I wanted to have 1 bedroom, a water view, close to hospitality house, but quieter area and on top floor.

    15 has no water view and 62,63 could have some bus noise on one side of the building.
    16 and 64 should be OK, but you can also request 17, 18, 23 or 24. All will have water views and are close to Hosp. House (which is an overrated desire IMHO!)

    Good Luck!

    Studios tend to be on the outside corners of the buildings. They are most likely to hear the bus noise. I've never found the buses to be a problem.

    We too have never noticed the bus noise as a problem. We have stayed at the Miller's Road area several times, and I would think the only problem would be if you had a unit right near where the bus turns around.

    We stayed in a 1 BR in Bldg 20 on Miller's Rd and all those "phantom" busses at OKW turn around in the circle there. The noise did't bother us but everytime we went to our minivan and raised the back deck the busses would swarm thru there like bees and almost hit our open back door. We never take a bus but I don't know how anyone could complain about the lack of busses.

    We have been there three times and again in two weeks. We have never heard the buses.
