Great art decor style interior. Amazing skylight in the room. Skip the hotels on the interstate and check this hotel out. Bright colors throughout the building and plenty of unique items to look at. Beware though everything close is closed on Sunday.More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Yes, of the 9 restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, only 2 are open on Sundays. So glad you liked our Exlectic Decor. Most people enjoy it. Hope to see you again...More

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.
