    There would be space available in a King Deluxe as it has a wet bar but no electric plates or portable cooktops.

    Does the hotel accept product delivery (from Best Buy, for example) bought online from the guests? I'm buying some products online and it would be great for it to be delivered at the hotel address during my stay. If it does, do you charge any extra value for that?

    I know this is a little late but we will accept packages as long as the recipient has a reservation or is in house. No Fee!
