Photo Comment:  The aerial picture shows the Holiday Inn Express at the top of the photo.  The single track train is seen along the bottom of the picture.  The distant view is narrow as marked by the blue lines.  Those two single story buildings will lessen the view of the railroad from 1st & 2nd floor rooms.  3rd Floor will be the best choice.
