    how to ask this question?

    Please, I would like to ask the people at the front desk of a hotel if the room that I am renting "faces" a certain direction (north, for example).
    When I say "face" I mean to be able to see a given part of the landscape (the north, in this example) when I look through the window of the room.
    Can I say "a room turned to the north" or "a room that faces the north"?
    Please, how to ask this question?
    Thanks.

    Does the room face north?

    I would like a south/north/east/west-facing room.

    Is there a sea view from this room?

    Does the room face the mountains/sea/forest?
