          I had a wonderful stay at the Waterfront last year. I loved our room which had a living room area with a fireplace.....my daughter stopped and stayed overnight on he pull out couch. Several months ago, I made a reservation for April 18-25 for this year requesting if we could get the same room. I called this morning to reconfirm my reservation and asked about my room request. I was told it was too far out to say they can definitely offer me the specific room, but they will try their best. My question: how likely will it be that I can get that room or something equal or better? Thanks. Robin
