Pretty Good

The food for a hotel restaurant was actually quite good, and wine cellar also has some nice wines. Would recommend if you did not want to venture out in the evening.

We were staying in this hotel, and got together with friends for happy hour, and then stayed around late waiting for friends to come back from an off-site event. Our server was great, and never made us feel like we'd overstayed our welcome. It's a hit pricey, but that's typical for hotel restaurants.

Used to be a good friendly bar but sadly the focus on serving the airline crews means that anyone else is of no interest to them. The bar staff are unfriendly and will happily argue with you over their mistakes. Serving a hot burger and fries shouldn't be too hard but if you have the nerve to suggest it is... More

Great food and great staff, I were very tired in the evenings and just went down to the restaurant and did not have to many hopes on finding some great food but I got surprised

No Dislikes whatsoever. Had many, many rooms for a large Rose Parade Band and the service, food, accommodations were superb for a group staying in this hotel. Excellent pool, large in scale, many common areas for gathering. Easy access of motor coaches in and out. Will use again at our earliest opportunity.

Food was good at all times of the day. Turkey burger was fantastic! Flatbreads were creative but I wish I could have ordered a custom flatbread.

We went to the palms when we stayed at the Hilton in January 2013. We went there for Breakfast. There was a buffet that was 20.00 but we didn't like the look of it so we ordered from the menu. The food was ok but the menu was pricey as our plates were around 10 to 11 dollars a piece... More

Don't bother - this is a typical hotel restaurant: poor service from overworked bar staff, bland and uninspiring food, and absolutely no ambience. Oh, and you pay a fortune for it.
