My family's package deal at the Fairmont Orchid included daily breakfast, and I have to tell you it is not disappointing. I have been in many hotels and had their "breakfast package" but this offering makes the others seem trivial. The quality and quantity of...More

We were seated and waited. After a short while we asked if we could be waited on. The food was fine, nothing high end or special and the cost was $35 per person.

The selection on this buffet is poor. Cheeses - Cheddar or Brie. Pastries - Croissant or Donut. I mean like Homer Simpson type donuts. What is going on here? Is this a 5 star hotel or a Holiday Inn Express. I don't remember the exact...More

The view is breathtaking, but the Sunday brunch buffet just doesn't match the quality of a Fairmont. An omelet station should be a standard at this buffet price level. I ordered an omelet from the server and it took forever. I couldn't believe previously frozen...More

We dined there every morning while staying at the Fairmont Orchid. The service was amazing. Very friendly and professional. Kids eat for pretty cheap too (discounted price). There is a made to order crepe guy (sweet and savory). Fresh juices. Awesome coffee! Fresh cut fruit.

I will start by saying that the breakfast buffet is probably among the best I've seen at a resort, if it's included with your reservation. It totally beats a continental breakfast any day. However, I probably wouldn't have eaten there if paying out of pocket....More
