This was one of the worst experiences of travel I've ever had to endure. Food was horrible-we went into town most days to get a decent meal.The rooms were all outfitted with twin beds (even the honeymoon suite).

There is a club but you probably want to walk a few blocks to 5th Ave. Lots of clubs there.
