Can I invite a friend to my room or a short visit? Do I need to notify the visit to the hotel staff?
you are more than welcome to invite your friends for a visit, you do not have to notify the hotel staff however, if they are staying more than a few hours, you will need to get a parking pass for their car.

Depends on how long "short visit" is. I cannot speak for the "security" of the hotel, so you should contact the hotel. Our past experience is that ONLY overnight guests need a parking pass. This is a "convention/meeting rooms" facility, in addition to an "overnight stay" place. We've had meetings, with locals attending, without parking passes. SO, in "OUR" opine, we would only secure a parking pass, for a visitor, if the visitor is staying overnight. PLEASE contact the hotel, for definitive answer !!! Hope this helps.
