Overall the hotel was very nice and a decent location for the rally. No food within walking distance. The bike washing area was nice to have. Housekeeping came through and did a good job cleaning the room and even threw away pizza we were saving. I talked to Lindsey at the front desk and she said no problem and ordered... More
