I've only stayed at New York - New York one time. It was about 3 years ago. I cannot remember the tower that we stayed in, but it was one of the towers that faced out to the roller coaster. During the day, we were usually out shopping, so we really weren't in our room much. When we came back in the evening to shower and get ready for our night time activities, that roller coaster was so loud screeching and zooming past our room. At first we thought it was funny and then it became a nuisance. The roller coaster ran into the night until about 10 or 11. Since we were always out late, it didn't matter, BUT when we were trying to sleep in during the morning hours, it drove us crazy!
If you go and stay here, make sure you request a room FAR AWAY from the roller coaster!
