We have been following a lebanese restaurant manager for long now and we decided to visit Cedar lounge last night. It was an amazing experience, with the hospitality of Elias Saad, where we ate lebanese food like we are eating home. Great hospitality, nice ambiance and amazing food.

overall the place is great to lounge around and spend an awesome weekend with friends, service is slow, check in takes forever if you can get them to give you a room before 3 pm and although our party had a great time it could have been better if our requests were sorted before we got there as asked.
