Hotel Restaurant - but not your typical hotel food

We spent a night at the hotel and ate dinner at the River Bistro. Who says that hotel food can't be amazing? The food quality here was top notch. The menu was small and came printed on paper. I got the impression that the menu is changed often to fit what foods are in season and fresh. I had the... read more

I stay at the Doubletree almost every other week for my job… I have had room service twice. The first time they screwed up my order and brought me children's chicken fingers with no sauces. I called they brought it up. Food was horrible. Second and last time I ordered room service I ordered a bacon cheeseburger. I realized there... More

Being part of the Double Tree Hotel, I would have expected a expanded menu. The slection is not bad and the food is well prepared, but it is a one sheet menu. Need more choices

Restaurant located in Double Tree by Hilton Hotel. As it was Sunday, the menu is condensed but the choice was quite suitable for us. Enjoyed it very much.

We hadn't visited since Doubletree hotels bought and renovated this property, but saw their newspaper ad for a Mother's Day Brunch and decided to make a noon reservation. Boy howdy are we happy that we did! Brunch was served in the grand ballroom which is spacious and lovely to begin with, and was specially decorated with large colorful spring flowers... More

We ordered room service from the River Bistro via the hang tag provided in our room. We requested a 9-9:15 delivery. The phone rang at 7:30 am, waking us up telling us they were out of some of what we ordered. The food was then delivered 45 minutes prior to the delivery window requested. Worst was the food was all... More

On most hotel stays I tend to avoid eating at the in house restaurant. I did catch a glimpse of the menu they had on the wall nearby. Decided for one evening to have dinner there and see what its like. For starters the dining room was a tad empty as I gotten there half hour they started dinner service.... More

Dinner was good. They serve you water in a cute little carafe. I was lucky to enough to Anika as my server. Very pleasant lady. Now for breakfast. I had the buffet. One of the best breakfast buffets I've been to. I wasn't the biggest I've been to, but the food was very good.

Went for lunch during Restaurant Week. Liked the decor and service, but food was just average. Soup was fine, but lacked flavor, as did chicken pot pie. Crust was slightly underdone. Apple turnover a la mode was tasty, but nothing special. My mom had a reuben with fries.Plenty of corned beef- she liked it. Good deal at $10, but not... More
