I like this hotel and have stayed over the years for conferences. Waiting staff generally well informed and attentive, at least before 8.30pm. Quality of food and presentation definitely down compared to previous years: too heavy handed and too salted. No longer in the fine...More

This is a great place for fresh salads, several types, and soups. The freshly baked bread and desserts are also delicious. My husband enjoys the entrées. There is generally a good selection.

This was a quiet and well-appointed place to have breakfast on the premises of the hotel, with a choice of newspapers. Because of dietary restrictions, I didn't go with the buffet. But the made-to-order options were plentiful and generous. Would be a good place for...More

Great service. Excellent breakfast buffet. They had it all there but it was too much so plan to come back several times to get the full experience.

I frequently attend lunch meetings at the Carillon and although a bit pricey, the food is excellent. There's twelve of us and the variety of items on the buffets satisfies everyone's preferences. There's a cold salad, fruit, cold vegetables, and lunch meats line. In addition,...More
