          I'm confused. Is this hotel have new/old sections? If so, how it's used? One is delax and the other is standard room? What is the difference and can you even request which section you want?

          The Kendall Hotel has 77 Guest Rooms. We have the original firehouse section within the front of the hotel, then the remainder of rooms within the tower.
          Hi. My husgand and I are deciding between the double queen or king room for our stay. Although the square footage is described as the same - 375 - which is or at least appears to be larger? Are the bathrooms in each comparable in size? Thank you in advance for your responses.
