          Hello, I was looking at your site and I was wondering if you have any availabilities for the the following dates: 8/29-9/2 2014.. Please let me know, I would like to book the room soon. I am a little flexible on the dates and it will be for 2 adults. Also, if you could let me know more about the amenities and the surrounding areas, that would be a plus.
