          Hi - It took us about 20-25 mins. That was during off peak time. No idea what would await you during summer. I certainly wouldn't expect it to be that quick. Maybe front desk can help.

          Standard is coffee maker. When you book ask for a room with a kitchenette. We had breakfast items and went to market. Pricey but, it worked.
