Dropped in after dinner for late night drinks. Nice atmosphere. Very comfortable. No rush. Would go again.

stayed at the hotel, cheapest breakfast is $17.00 for two eggs and toast? What a rip off! The buffet is $27.00! who would pay that much for your typical buffet that is often FREE or maybe $12 to $15 at other hotels?
