    Our Girl Scout Troop will be coming in two weeks, I know you supply towels, but do we need extra and are we responsible for washing them daily. Also how are the bathrooms and showers set-up on each floor are they set-up for male and female separate use? Will the GS be safe using these accommodations alone.

    Transportation is easy and the walk is as well. Light rail is a block or so away.
