I am 62 years of age, was raised in Jackson, MS and I'm very much aware of the history associated with the OLD King Edwards. First...I must say that it's restoration is beautiful...job well done. However, I was in Jackson to take my mother to the NEW King Edwards for her 85th birthday luncheon...at her request...she has a lot of fond memories of the OLD King Edwards and wanted to go back one last time to see it all cleaned up and shining like the old grand hotel it once was. We arrived for lunch at approximately 11:30 a.m. go inside was met by a guest of the hotel...she stopped to speak (did not know the woman...she was just very friendly)...she informed us that she was heading up Capital Street to go eat lunch at the Marriott Hotel because the Hilton Garden does not serve lunch on Saturdays...we did not want breakfast...we wanted lunch. I went to the front desk and asked to clarify what I had heard and was told..."we do not serve lunch on Saturday." Also, the front desk did not offer any suggestions of restaurants close by to accommodate us. Now on their web site it states..."The King Edward Grill offers Full American Breakfast buffet with cooked to order portion in the mornings. Menu service available for lunch and dinner. King Edward Grill is open for: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner...Saturday 06:00 AM - 9:30 PM."
We left very disappointed, especially my mother...who probably will not have another opportunity to go back due to age, etc. I was disappointed because I was not able to fulfill my mothers very simple birthday request. My husband and I travel extensively and we are HHonor Customers...I'm sure we will be taking a second look before we select or confirm reservations at another HGI...evidently you can not believe what they advertise.
