          Parking is free if you are a hotel guest. There is a LARGE lot. I don't know where the arena is.

          What does the pool look like and is there a hot tub???

          There is no hot tub. The pool is a decent sized standard hotel pool. I would guess that it was originally outdoors, but was enclosed several years ago.
