very clean hotel. "Pet friendly" doesn't mean the pets actually sleep in the beds!!!! Anyway, no trace of any pets whatsoever when I was staying there; and I certainly will again!

I did not travel with kids. I saw no signage for a day care. However, when my kids were young various hotels we stayed in were able to supply sitters at cost. I suggest you call RSB to learn how they can help you.
