Is there an empty mini fridge available in the room where I can store our own food and snacks?
i think so if not you can ask room service to empty out the fridge.
There is a fridge and it's automated, so you can't take items out to make room for your food.
I don't recall an empty one. My view about such things is that if you need a fridge, ask the hotel to empty the one in your room. This has worked at other hotels, but I haven't tried it at a RC.
There’s no empty fridge for your own food .
Our room had a bar fridge in it however it was stocked with minibar items.
There was no space for other food and or drinks.
