Views outdoors - lovely and very large indoor dining area(s). Half booths and tables - high level dining. Don't miss the Sunday buffet. I think it's one of the best I've every had. Picture everything you want and expect in a fancy restaurant buffet....and more.

Had the breakfast buffet before departing the hotel recently. Server was attentive and polite. Food was above average for buffet food and offerings were about average. Was not worth the $32 price tag however.

All of the restaurants are over priced and there are no options within walking distance. Therefor you need to retrieve your car, drive to several blocks and tip AGAIN re park your car.More

Great service and fresh food make for a positive start to the day. it's a little pricey for continental ($24), but you can certainly enjoy the full buffet ($36) and call it a brunch with the made to order eggs, waffles and pancakes.
