Without a doubt.
It just depends how much you value having a full kitchen, private pool/hot tub with a walled in backyard, a pool table, etc, etc.

if it was a family affair or holiday rental, i'd go w/ the full house but for a quick trip the renassaince should do the job...good thing is that there is a coffee bean or two and they started serving more food items so at least there will be a normal breakfast.

If anyone cares, the HR PSP is on JS for $85.
YMMV on using a suite upgrade.

True, but I failed when I tried to do in PH DC. YMMV

Lol, nothing, nada, zilch.
The grocery stores have kosher sections, that's it.
