    I am looking at a booking in mid-February. Would the hotel renovation be still ongoing then?
    30 January 2017|
    Answer
    Response from Angelica R | Property representative |
    Renovations will not be completed by then, Currently it is just m-f and just the elevators and areas where we have no guests at.

    Fire code sets the max occupancy for our rooms with 2 queens as 4. We can not knowingly allow more occupants in a room.
