          We are interested in booking a room Feb 24, 2016. We have 3 people, including myself and my 15 year old daughter and a friend of the family. What would be the best room to look at? What is the rate during that time frame? We could do 2 separate double(full) size beds if needed I could sleep with my daughter. Is there a room with 3 separate sleeping areas?
