We only ate breakfast at the Tavern, but it was quite good. Tasty breads, everything well-cooked. Had to ask for juice to go and they were able to get it done pretty quickly.

This is a very nice hotel, and the food and bar options are pretty good. I would recommend the bar for food in a pinch. We ate here in such a pinch, and had no complaints.

Chicken was very dry, and the bread was odd...flavor was not appealing. Staff however, was so friendly and courteous. I hope they correct this, I really liked them.
