Attended on a graduation weekend. Eight people, different tastes and interests, but all were happy. You do an amazing center piece--part salad bar and par dinner sides--and then gauchos bring you 16 different meats. You take want you want or pass.

The Marriott is closer than the Sheraton but both are within walking distance. We stayed at the Sheraton on Club level and would not recommend that, it really needs some TLC.
