          I am looking at a booking in mid-February. Would the hotel renovation be still ongoing then?

          Response from Angelica R | Property representative |
          Renovations will not be completed by then, Currently it is just m-f and just the elevators and areas where we have no guests at.

          Fire code sets the max occupancy for our rooms with 2 queens as 4. We can not knowingly allow more occupants in a room.
