          It depends on the weather, I suspect. May be open for ice skating.

          Dear Novotel: I have been unable to find an email contact for the hotel directly. My daughter is celebrating her 1st anniversary there with her husband in a couple of weeks. I wanted to do something for them as a "surprise", upgraded room/ flowers, etc. Have been completely unable to reach anyone via email, phone results in language barrier and I do not want to make a phone call directly to the hotel (as it is out of the country) I'm hoping this note will get passed on to the hotel manager and they will contact me so I can make these arrangements with them. monti51197@yahoo
