Can I bring a CD or DVD player into the suite?

No need! All of our suites feature entertainment systems with a DVD player and a CD player, as well as a TV and tuner. All you need to do is bring along your favorite CDs and DVDs.

Can we have more than 2 people in the room?

No. Our suites are for couples only.

Do you stock the wet bar?

We don’t carry a liquor license, so we do not stock the wet bar. However, if you provide us with the beverages before you check-in, we would be more than happy to stock the wet bar for you.

What is your cancellation policy?

Reservations must be canceled 24 hours prior to the time of arrival or a $50 cancellation fee will apply. If you do not call to cancel the reservation within 24 hours prior to the time of arrival or do not show up, we will charge your credit card the full amount.
