Stopped by the Handlery Hotel to see a local jazz trio before dinner at the Hunter restaurant. The Jazz trio was excellent. A special treat was the impromptu visit and joining the trio by a saxophone playing friend who came to watch. The trio was well received and very entertaining.

Didn't feel like driving so stayed in the hotel for dinner. Pleasantly surprised, Brussel sprouts were good and the steak was perfect. Service was a bit slow.

We have several favorite breakfast places from previous trips but after our first breakfast at the Handlery, we had breakfast there everyday. Food is great and service is so accommodating...no need to go anywhere else!

Had breakfast there. 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns and coffee - $14.10. Thought it was HIGH priced. Service was decent. Coffee seemed high ($3) for the quality. Breakfast could have came with juice or fruit for that much. Rest of the meals were with the Conference. Conference food was good. Good selection of fruit in the morning.

I had a business lunch today there and was amazed by the fresh and delicious Garden Spaghetti Salad as well as the Chicken Chipotle Wrap made by Executive Chef Peter Erni and his team. Great service and experience!
