This Hilton has a beautiful art collection throughout the hotel and the 2nd floor is really a wonderful art gallery. One of the most lovely collections of visual art! But what made this art experience so exceptional was the artistic way they serve banquet dinners. The hotel taught their servers the traditional art of the Russian two-plate ceremony which is a beautiful choreographed presentation of food that is a treat for all! Recently stayed at the Indianapolis Conrad for an eduction conference and all the participants could talk about was how incredible the Russian serving choreograph was! A team of energetic and graceful servers come to each table, surround it in a poised and warm embrace with the plates held high in a halo around the guests. They move in a graceful choreographed dance of their arms as the plates glide above the diners and then, in unison, the servers artfully cross their arms and graciously place the plates in a crisscross motion, serving each guest. It is much more beautiful to experience than to read this description, as any choreography looses the fluidity in words. Amazing to watch as each table is served. Conversation stops. The room erupts in applause. Then when the severs approach your table you feel warmed by this most gracious and welcoming circle of smiling faces who are so proud to serve you! Wish the team would teach other Hilton this incredible art. As an education leader who attends hundreds of banquet dinners in hotels around the world (albeit not yet in Russia), I can't think of any better way to treat banquet guests. The food was delicious and beautifully plated too. But that is expected in Hiltons. There is a secret sauce at this Conrad and it should be spread to the rest of the Hilton chain as a way to establish their flagship hospitality to the next level!
