The Hive restaurant in the 21c hotel is fast becoming my favorite place to take friends and visitors for lunch. All the food I have had there on 4 different occasions has been excellent. The wait staff and all the hotel staff are very professional and helpful. The manager on every visit came to my table and asked if everything was to my and my guest's satisfaction. All the employees are delighted to explain about a piece of art and the materials used. The prices for lunch are reasonable and there is free valet parking for Hive patrons. The artwork is very creative, amazing, and sometime surprising in many ways. That's what makes it so wonderful! Today I noticed details in some of the art pieces that I missed on my first 3 visits.
I have NO reason to stay at the hotel since because I'm lucky enough to live in Bella Vista about 15 minutes north of the 21c Hotel and Crystal Bridges Museum.
