The hotel is providing us with a very comfortable and room "hospitality room". A full size refrigerator is provided in addition to ice chests for cold beverages and food items. The room has a sink and plenty of counter and storage space. The room is large enough to meet all our meeting and socializing needs. The hospitality room is secure, so if any of you have any memorabilia, photos etc. that you would like to share, please feel free to bring them. Food and drinks are allowed in the hospitality room. The hospitality room will open at about 0700 (W/Coffee) and secure around 2300. The Hotel serves a free "Continental Breakfast". The hotel staff is great, taking care of all requests and needs.
