It is 2:40 in the morning and I am waiting on my porter to finish up. This guy cleans all my floors and actually cleans my kitchen. I haven't seen one of these since I lived in New York. Nice to have someone here who takes care of so many of the small details.

They are our partner and we recommend locations to the members. It's a great traffic driving program with a bit more of an affluent base of people. Let me know if you would like to chat further.
