Not that it much matters which one you pick, but this one does the job: rooms are spacious, with armoires, low tea tables, low beds, broadcast TVs and reasonable bathrooms that feature naked-lady tiles -- no extra points for that though. Rooms are priced depending on the number of beds and if you want a window you'll have to go for at least a two-bedded room as the cheapest have none.
