Rates are $300 to $450 per month, depending on the size of the room.  There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer available free of charge (you must provide your own soap).  Maid service is also available at $5/day, when required.  The business center offers a computer with free internet access.  If a high speed internet connection is required in the room, a $25 fee will be charged monthly.  A website will be up and running in approximately a week:
