Room Services

We want to provide you the highest level of service and attention, but we understand if you prefer to limit staff members entering your room. To accommodate personal preferences, we are offering options for housekeeping and room services:

  • Contactless Service: We understand some of you may want contactless service during your visit, so we will stock your room appropriately for your entire stay. Upon your arrival, we will discuss options for additional requests, linen exchanges, and turndown service.
  • Traditional Service: Our team will access your room, take all safety precautions, and perform our evening turndown service, which includes turning down your bed and delivering fresh baked cookies and milk. We will also access your room to perform your daily room refresh.
