          hi Alan. yes the hotel does have a tour desk but if you know where you want to go you can arrange it for yourself at a much cheaper price using uber taxis along with assistance from the concierge.
          Has the hotel rooms been recently renovated? Pls advise which room type has been done, as we are worry the rooms are quite dated. Thanks!
