Nice and close to the Aloft. Great food. And the service is excellent. Oh and great normal coffee. None of that fancy pretend coffee.

Was recommended by a local and didn't disappoint ! Portions were huge , food selection was huge! Service was great. Was there for breakfast and had a Thanksgiving Omelet while others in our group had pancakes, waffles and sandwiches. Everyone loved their selection. Wish I had more room in my stomach!
