    datgood
    I am wondering if it is worth the money to upgrade to the larger 1 bedroom corner suite or even the 2 bedroom? We will be there for 2 nights and are two adults and one 12 year old child who will be using the pull-out. Would we be ok with the regular 1 bedroom or should we look at the 2 bedroom suite. TIA
