Officially the have minyanim three times a day, every day. That being said, it really depends how many frum people are staying there.
You may have an easier time getting a Minyan at the Royal hotel which is about 5-8 minute walk away.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to decide whether to do the Royal hotel or CO for two days. Royal would be $550 for two twin beds and breakfast. The CP would be about $250 (buying points) assuming I can call and have them open up  points availability. Do you guys know which hotel is more Kosher? I gather both are Rabanut but CP has a mashgiach you can talk to? Also, is the Royal a much nice hotel than the CP? Reviews from the CP scare me.

Thanks!
