The hotel is totally non-smoking and has 1633 rooms of which Elks will occupy 1450 with only 20 handicapped rooms available. It is a traveler’s hotel with no dresser and very limited hanger space. They provide 6 hangers per room and the bathrooms have a nice liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner available. Each room has an iron, hair dryer, a single cup coffee maker, alarm clock, flat screen TV and small cooler, not quite a refrigerator and they do not stay on 24/7. They must be restarted after 2-8 hours. Internet is free in guest rooms and is generally available throughout the hotel.
The indoor-outdoor pool closes at 8 p.m. but will stay open later on request. Within the hotel, you may carry a drink with you anywhere inside the Hotel, just do not go outside with the alcohol. This violates State and City law and a violation could result in the hotel shutting down our hospitality room.
