          Has anyone used the meeting space? How efficient is the catering of dinner from Sarabeth's restaurant to the meeting space? We have a group of 8-10 and are considering this for a 6-8 pm work dinner on a Friday night.

          I have no experience with catering for a group though I will say Sarabeth's has a great reputation and your group size is manageable so I wouldn't foresee any problems.

          I noticed that you said the sofa bed was firm, but what about the other bed (or beds)? We prefer something on the softer side, and if firmness is the standard we'll need to look elsewhere. Thanks.
