    The staff was very friendly and helpful....Always remembered my name and reconized the members of my family whenever they arrived.

    I did not study my invoice until I arrived in Florida.....There was a 17.50 charge for wine from the Mini bar.....I Never took as much as a peanut from the mini bar....Did not want to call and add an overseas charge....so I let it go.....
