    If we were staying with an 11-year old son, would we have sofa-bed or roll-out bed for him in our room, and would there be extra charge above the room charge?

    Does hotel provide complimentary (free-of-charge) airport transfers? I read one review from a guest who stayed in December 2013 who said he didn't pay "not one coin" for the transfers - is that true?
