Summer is in full swing and what better way to celebrate the long warm days than to spend time with the entire family. Many of our guests have been enjoying the variety of activities (many of them free) that have been happening at the shopping center. And the list of fun keeps growing!
Check out what is happening in August.

Since opening in August of last year, many of our guests have praised us for providing Free Wi-Fi. I have heard time and time again how they are fed up with being charged extra fees so they may access their wireless Internet (sometimes as much as $14.00 a day!!). In fact, we are hearing more and more that Free Wi-Fi is one of the services our guests value the most.
The costs of providing wireless Internet have come down- it simply does not make sense to nickel and dime our guests….or make them join some Loyalty program or jump through hoops. From the beginning, our hotel has been committed to providing our guests with the most luxurious and comfortable accommodations in the area- and this means Free Wi-Fi .
The article Business travelers winning battle for free hotel Internet access in USA Today by Barbara DeLollis posted last month addresses this issue:
More business travelers are getting what they say they want most from hotels: free Internet access in their rooms……Henry Harteveldt, a travel industry analyst at Forrester Research, says that it’s time for hotels to drop Internet charges. ”Hotels realize that companies and individuals are fed up with paying extra for Wi-Fi,” he says. “Consumers are smart enough to know the cost of providing it has come down.”
