    We had lunch on a Saturday - the place was packed. The service was excellent and the food was really good. The menu offered everything from seafood to sandwiches - with a Portabella sandwich to a Salmon burger.

    I really do not know if this is a requirement of a weekend stay. You would have to call the hotel and inquire about this topic. Sorry I cannot help in this regard.

    No it doesn't have any of those. It has ice bucket and traditional shampoo lotion etc. The hotel does have two complementary water bottles and a small chocolate on first day of arrival.
