          I don't think they have them in the rooms - they are pretty basic! But as the other comment says - the front desk seems to have everything you need and they are very helpful!

          My flight arrives in Cairns at 0:05 on 7/15. I can book a suite from 7/14, but I need to know if there will be someone to greet us at this time and give us the keys.
