          I'm interested in staying there for 4 or 5 weeks in Nov (& 1st few days of Dec). Is it possible to have a mini-fridge in my room, or are there kitchen facilities I can have access to while staying? I read the suites have monthly rates, but don't know what they are. What is available for me (one person) starting around Nov 2? If I have choices, anyone with ideas or suggestions for me?
