Very beautiful area. But apparently you can't sit in a rooftop chair without paying for it. No one around at 7:15am. I was asked to leave the chair I was in because I had not reserved it.

I didn't like the fact that there were multiple fees added on when I arrived such as $40 per day fee for internet use and gym use as well as $26 per day valet for vehicles. No option to park vehicle yourself or opt out of gym use.
