View from room 408. Great room! Cold A/C.
what type of nightlife is available in the area?
Pretty cool area lots of little restaurants with bars, Most of the hotels have small but very lively pubs/bars. You wont have a problem finding somewhere to hang out.

is this property pet friendly
I didn't see any pets during my stay there this past July so I'm going to say no.But it can't hurt to verify that with the hotel-the staff is great and happy to help.

I would assume that the weather would be very nice in Nov as the weather seems to get cooler at the end of Dec and on through February. With that being said, the weather has been very strange this year and all bets are off. Check with the Weather Channel for past history.
