          This hotel was a breath of fresh air after ten days and five other hotels. Good breakfast and the rooms are old school but clean. Just across the street from President Truman's home. Short walking distance to Independence Square which has a good restaurant selection.

          I don't know. You could call the front desk and I'm sure they would tell you. I imagine there may be some State regulations regarding your question.
