Ate breakfast here. Food was hot, typical buffet offerings, fresh made omelets, fruit, meats, assorted pastries. Attentive service and great for people watching as it is located in the open close to front desk.

Crown Plaza is one of the few locations that serves Sunday brunch including champagne. The menu is different each week. Always includes omelettes, prime rib, a small salad selection, oysters, crab legs, smoked salmon and shrimp. The service is very good and it is advisable to make reservations, since the hotel often has special events. The price is reasonable for... More

The buffet is quite nice but the con is the sushi. They make TERRIBLE sushi, almost inedible. They do not have a sushi chef and are worse than beginners at this.

Dining without the travel while in the hotel. Many options for food and a good bar for after dinner drinks. Open later.

A very pleasant experience. Good sushi and overall a nice restaurant. The staff was attentive, although has a little issue understanding English. The restaurant is kept cold, so take a jacket if you are sensitive to temps. Overall, worth the visit.

The food in all of the venues, as well as room service, was far better than most hotels in this class.
