    We have a long layover on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017 and would love to spend the day at your hotel. I noticed, however, that you are renovating in December. Will you still be open during renovations?

    We will still be open. Our expansion plans involve building more rooms upwards. General guest areas won't be affected. You are welcome to join us at the hotel.

    Hi there. Just wondering if you will be closing at some point soon for your renovations? We were hoping to book a night in April 2017, but some agency booking websites have noted you will be temporarily closed.
