I was staying here for several weeks. First two weeks I ate in the club lounge frequently for both breakfast and dinner for time reasons and the food was good. We had a variety of food to choose from, however,in the last week, the choice of food has drastically declined. Cereal was no longer out at breakfast - only choices were fruit and oatmeal, no bread, but they had jam out, no eggs, etc. Dinner food was lentil soup & salad most nights. One day most of the kitchen staff did not show up and dinner in the lounge did not even start until after 7:00 and only tuna salad was offered. The room service dishes were still sitting in the halls when we arrived back that night. We had to go down and tell the front desk people to see if they could be removed as they were starting to smell. I have never seen this happen in a hotel before. We have a client staying with us in the hotel and this was most embarrassing. It is certainly not worth the additional $30 a night charge for a club room. We have heard a lot of people say that the Sheraton is trying to cut back on expenses, but I don't think this is the way to accomplish that. I will no longer stay in a club room, not worth the additional cost. In fact, I am considering changing my reservations to either the Hilton or marriott as both are great and I can feel confident that my client will not be embarrassed. At least he will have more choices of food offered.
