My family enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving brunch at Little America Flagstaff. The food choices were incredible, definitely something for everyone: crab legs, prime rib, imported cheeses, turkey and all the trimmings, eggs Benedict, apple-wood smoked bacon, sausage, crepes to order, fantastic warm rolls, fresh shrimp scampi, and an endless dessert bar featuring a chocolate fountain, pumpkin pie, chocolate trifle and bread pudding. The servers ensure your glasses are never empty and that all plates are cleared in a timely fashion. Live piano music plays Christmas tunes while you dine. The setting is extravagent, one truly feels pampered. This could be a new holiday tradition for us!
On the downside...we planned our entire trip around the holiday lights. Back in August I called the hotel to confirm the holiday lighting event would be Thanksgiving weekend. Imagine my surprise the weekend before Thanksgiving learning that the event was happening the week before Thanksgiving. I called the hotel to confirm there would be events occurring after the lighting event and I was told there was always something going on. I explained we were coming from out of town and my children were looking forward to the various events. So...we went to the hotel Saturday evening as planned and there was NOTHING to do. The hotel boasts "millions of twinkling lights." Not one twinkling light - all static lights - and definitely not millions. In fact, far fewer lights than our last visit several years ago. I asked the desk clerk about events and was given a flyer for the North Pole Experience and a separate sleigh ride. I told her I had called the week before and was told there would be events going on each weekend. She said, "well, I'm sorry you were misinformed." The North Pole Experience would have cost my family $350 to participate, and from what I've read, not worth the hefty price tag. And the sleigh ride? Another $100+. That said, we will go back for the holiday brunch, but not for the holiday lights.
