We started our day, every day at the hotel, with breakfast here. Quick efficient service and they know how to cook an egg to order, that's less common than you might think.

Had a bbq chicken flatbread pizza which had bacon & scallions on it - it was very good & pleasing to the eye. My daughter had a grilled chicken quesadilla which came with salsa & sour cream which she had on the side. She liked her meal also & is very picky. There is a Starbucks here too, we ordered... More

If you stay at the nearby Fairfield Inn & Suites this is your only option for food/ beer without having to drive or take a car. Simple enough burgers and salads etc but perfectly acceptable.

Breakfast menu is tasty, done quickly, with many healthy options. Best Non-Corporate Starbucks I have had.

I was staying at the hotel and decided to eat breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The food was very good and they had a wide range food. I would eat here again if staying.

When you are tired and cranky it is nice to walk into a friendly, pleasant environment where people have been trained to serve. I wanted to grab a sandwich and a coffee. They took my order, dent me to my room to get settled. When I returned, my meal was ready. Perfectly prepared, professionally presented. The service made me feel... More

A very typical Courtyard food stop. Only had a quick citrus chicken and spinach salad. Quickly prepared (maybe pre-made?), but hit the spot. For the one meal I needed, it was adequate. If I was staying for more than that evening, then I would be struggling for a good selection, without a car.

This is the only restaurant in the hotel, and there are none within walking distance. Menu varied but quite limited. Food was good, but on the pricey side. They do not open until 5pm, happy hour 5-7 pm. Not sure when they close. 2 happy hour beers, 1 glass of good wine, 2 sandwiches plus tip $57.

2 day stay, arrived late night looking for a snack. Looked at the menu trying to find that something - went out to eat. The menu has some of the basics, gets diverse and was pricey. Tried one of their breakfast sandwiches the next morning. Food was good and the staff was very friendly and professional but felt we should... More
