Make sure you review your room folio if you eat here

Breakfast was really good, just didn't like being overcharged by $60...The room folio was double billed for our included breakfast.

We were staying at the hotel during the new year's week. The hotel was completely packed and they still tried to be as accommodating as possible. We did have to wait a bit some mornings to sit down and at times the service was slow - however, what impressed me was the restaurant mgmt pitching in and waiting tables -... More

Stayed nearby but came here for dinner. Lobby is classic and beautiful, Grill just off lobby. Cocktails distinctive and well done. Wine list was good, included some excellent choices, reasonably priced. Wide range of choices for starters, our group decided the mock turtle soup was the best. Entrees were also very good, although limited choices. Not a great place for... More

Good service and menu choices that were unique. If you like potatoes with breakfast, they came up with a killer style.

We were staying at the hotel, so thought we'd try the Grill one evening. We were glad we did! It was fabulous. The service was amazingly attentive.

I had 3 meals in this restaurant - dinner, breakfast, and lunch. I had the charcuterie plate at dinner, and after a flight, it was exactly the right amount of food. At breakfast, I had the "power" breakfast which was healthy, tasty, and filling. Lunch was a salad - the chicken was tasteless, but the greens were fresh. I did... More

There were four of us for a business lunch, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The best part was the decor, it felt a bit like a throw back to a kinder gentler time, where people were not quite as rushed and could savour their food.

The food was delicious and our waitress was very pleasant and professional. There was live music that provided an elegant atmosphere and we enjoyed our dinner very much.

Of course it is a bit overpriced but a great location... The hookers that hang out in the lobby are a distraction but it is a down town hotel

This review is specifically for the Thanksgiving Buffet at the U.S. Grant. We were seated in The Grant Grill, and the buffet was absolutely amazing. We managed to try at least one bite of everything, and with the weird exception of the roast beef loin (I would have predicted that that would have been perfect, but it was tough), every... More
