You'll Never Believe

An instant classic. A sprawling 700 room resort hotel sitting on almost 500 acres, featuring two high-rise towers and an 18 hole golf course. Also featuring multiple active security guards and a cellular transmitter on the roof of the tower. You'll never believe how well-kept it is.
