Good hotel overall
It was a nice hotel but we were very excited for room service which they state twice in the books in the rooms that they provide at an extra charge. We were fine with this and went about our day. When it came time to order I called the number. They told me they dont really do room service and i could come down and get the food myself. I had 2 small children in bed already so, no I can not come down. Dont advertisers things that arent offered please.
