    I was disappointed after arrival to find out that the main dining room was undergoing renovations. Otherwise the service and quality of the food was excellent.

    Convenience is the name of the game here not service or a meal that you would return for. While I am a guest at this hotel , other than the hostess who greeted me warmly , I treated very rudely by an inattentive waiter and have a breakfast that was best characterized as marginal .

    The Breakfast buffet was fully Inedible. Eggs where dried out, sausage was hard as a rock, potatoes and bacon was subpar. Croissants where completely stale. Avocado Toast looked like the avocado was the leftover guacamole from night before, all brown and slimy. Waiter was unfriendly and unwelcoming.

    Menu is too limited. Bottles of wine are a little too pricey.

    Terrible food…old wilted lettuce and brown avocado. Dirty glasses were still on the table from the previous party. Terrible service, had to ask for water and remind them of basic things. Not friendly, did not greet guests and just looked the other way instead. Over $125 for extremely basic brunch dishes for 3 people… what a complete waste. The hotel is beautiful and I expected better.
