I realize it’s during covid. However, the suite should have been FULLY stocked with coffee for 5, including creamers and sugar and bottles water. The suite refrigerator did NOT work. So they made it impossible to store any beverages we bought. There were 5 of us in the 2 bedroom suite, we were provided with 4 bath towels & not enough “hotel essentials “ like I’d think.
