Recently, we held a conference at the hotel including catered breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was impressed with the hotel as a whole. Rooms were nice, prices decent and the meeting rooms and show venue were professional and nicely presented.
Catering left a lot to be desired, as the majority of the food looked, tasted and was presented as an "out of the box" type of food. Very little flavor was noticeable and not presented in the best manners (for example, chocolate cake with buttercream frosting sitting on top of paper doilies).
Overall, it is worth another try, but I will do so with knowing that just because you are told that the chef does a great baby red potato, doesn't mean that it doesn't come pre-cooked out of a frozen bag.
