Breakfast Buffet Good

We enjoyed the Breakfast Buffet and the waitstaff service was attentive and kind. The buffet was fresh and included Japanese as well as traditional American breakfast items on the buffet. My reservation is that at $15.00 a person, it is a little expensive for what was offered.

While staying at the nearby hotel we wanted a good tasty meal at the end of our travel day. The Birch River Grill is a little surprise tucked away on Algonquin Road in Arlington Hts, IL. Do not be mislead and think that you are getting hotel food! In fact they have wild game and all kinds of normal food... More

met 4 of my lady friends for dinner as it was equidistant for all of us. It is connected to a Double Tree so it appeared the majority of patrons were hotel guests. Food is good, service is excellent and it offers a comfortable experience at decent prices. The menu was varied and we all ordered something different. They have... More

Beautiful restaurant terrible staff. Rude and less than helpful. I've had better service at a self service gas station. Food is nothing to talk about. Imagine a breakfast buffet in a five room motel in Wyoming you'll get the picture. Hotel and staff (Double Tree) is beautiful and staff is focused and friendly. Not to worry there is a Denny's...

The breakfast buffet was excellent and reasonable. They have Asian flight crews staying here - so it also had a large selection of Asian breakfast foods.

I had breakfast here when I was staying at the Double Tree and got a buffet coupon. It was ok, but I would prefer to order off the menu.

I was attending a seminar at the Doubletree in Arlington Heights and in the interest of time and convenience I opted for the in-hotel restaurant. The bar area features many comfortable arm chairs and couches, as well as a large stone fireplace. It looked to be an excellent place to unwind. The lunch menu features a variety of salads, sandwiches... More

Staying across the street at the Marriott we tried the Grill for a light supper. Order a Cosmo and a Manhattan. My wife is quite particular about her Cosmos and like this one very much. Manhattan was spot on, also. We shared a thin, crispy 12inch pizza and the baby wedge salad. Pizza was flavorful and not greasy. Baby wedge... More

Was part of a group that had a welcome reception in the restaurant. Loved the ambience and the fireplace. Good presentation and flavourful food, with a good Had breakfast twice as a hotel resident. Good spread, but the menu was the same on both days. Services were quick and attentive.
