Additionally, guests can see the local Hometown Favorites prepared by full-service Petro Iron Skillet® and TA restaurants on each location's amenities page. And, amenities icons can now be pressed and held for more detailed descriptions. Drivers can also call the Reserve-It™ Parking Reservation number with the touch of a button.
