I was staying at the Ramada hotel in which the restaurant was located. The menus provided in the rooms have no prices on them besides the liquor menu. I ordered a Pesto Chicken, and for $20 I got a single chicken breast garnished with broccoli and carrots, served on 5 tiny potato wedges. Botanica is an overpriced restaurant that presents... More

breakfast was pretty big and expansive. I would recommend you to have a b/f here even though it was not included in my room rate.

I was there with an event booked at the hotel. We weren't allowed outside food and was asked to eat at the hotel. The first day I ordered the burger with mushrooms, cheese, and bacon. It was a generic bun with a frozen patty. And even though I preordered for a certain time, it was sitting on a counter waiting... More

The food was delicious! And all the staff were very friendly. A+ We also had their continental breakfast and it was very well done - lots of variety of food, both hot and cold. And the servers were very helpful and attentive.

4 pyramids, 4 sceneries. The tropical and arid pyramids were my favorite. We walked around ourselves as we had a little one ans its easier to do things at our own pace but there was an option for a guided tour. They r themed, this one being fables. Not much for story telling but im sure it would have been... More

What can I say. The building is undergoing a huge renovation. That really should not affect the quality of this restaurant. We had a large group booked for a Sunday dinner recently (April 2013). So they knew we were coming. 20 of us. There might have been only another 6 people in the restaurant. The place feels isolated with all... More

Food is overpriced. Even the free breakfast ($16 if not a guest!!!) is bland but at least gets food in you to start your day. "Delicious Prime Rib Dinner" a lie it was not good. Poor service, especially from the supervisor, poor quality food. Do not eat here.

My wife and I stayed at the Mayfield after the Sunday night dinner theatre we received one free breakfast buffet with room. We both decided on the buffet so for $18.00 we got cold everything, poor service and a "it's usually better than this" from the waitress. We have eaten here a couple times at the overpriced Sunday brunch but... More
