First: Kudos! to the host - Mr. George, who was both professional, courteous and heartily helpful with clear communication and information. Second: The Room (size) for us two was chic and perfect; however, we wished the A/C was not so close to the bed and head as it interfered with our sleep while it snored happily. :) We admired the...
