          No free parking nearby. $47 per hour valet parking on premises. $15 per 24 hours at 8th and K street parking garage is the cheapest nearby parking. No in and out privileges.

          I'm very sorry for the delay in answering your question! The large tubs are available in our King Spa, King Spa Corner and Master Suites only. The rest of the rooms have a standard sized tub.
