Check in: 3:00pm and Check out: 12:00pm (pretty standard).
This is a non smoking property. Pets are not allowed.
Some other cool amenities the hotel & resort has is a barber / beauty shop, Bourbon Program, a game room, babysitting, and even a virtual concierge (have a real one too lol). Of course their are many others, this is just a few that stand out.
