Excellent choices at the breakfast buffet. I'm not really a buffet person, but this one was worth it. Several different egg choices, traditional breakfast meats plus plenty of fresh fruit. There were danishes, oatmeal with brown sugar, raisins, slivered almonds and cinnamon toppings, lavash, deli meat and cheese selections, cheese blintzes, pancakes and french toast. Service was attentive.

The Sierra takes on an entirely different ambience in the evening. The bustle of the day gives way to a more calm demeanor. The wait staff helpfully shares their insights on the entrees and any of the accompaniments.

We ate here twice during our stay - for breakfast both times. The buffet was quite good. You need a waiter in order to get anything to drink though, including coffee. The first day we were there, I finally got up and started looking around for one, but to no avail! I ended up going to the hospitality desk and... More

Great variety of food on the buffet. Raisin bread French toast was really good, lots of fruit, cereals and oatmeal, eggs, etc. We came late at 11:00 am, so food had been out for a while. Next time we will try to get there earlier. We live locally and there is a 10% discount if you tell them that. A... More

It would be better if they could alter the dinner menu occasionally.For breakfast there is a choice eating from main menu or buffet.
