Among the nicest of physical settings, a classy old place, lots of wood. As far a being a bar though - zero - they had lost their liquor license temporarily. I had a hamburger, it was ok, the ice tea was fine too. Maybe another time

We were told there was a new menu and the friendly bartender was right about the burgers. We had a great time and a guy was playing the piano.

Went on a Sunday for lunch before an afternoon concert. Ordered soup and sandwiches, they were cheap and fresh. Bartender got my order wrong but he made good cocktails. Went back for coffee and dessert, different bartender but still overworked. This place needs help!

When a hotel chain advertises on concert tickets for the local Santander arena, they need to provide the manpower to staff the place on the evening of said concert. Then again, if... More

When a hotel chain advertises on concert tickets for the local Santander arena, they need to provide the manpower to staff the place on the evening of said concert. Then again, if you're a corporation like Wyndham, you don't bother, and just overwork the meager staff you put on duty. It's obvious you don't give a darn about your customers... More

Bartenders always work hard here, and the food quality is consistent and better than most "hotel food."

The bar is a beautiful historic room, (right off the lobby and up a few steps),with wonderful wood work and a real - oak bar. Two nice TVs with ESPN on with the sound up! I had a Victory Hop Devil while there - it was NOT on the happy hour special - but I was not complaining-it went down... More
