Wedding Reception was in the Swan Terrace on Saturday at dinner time. We were kicked out and had to walk down the street to an Applebee's for dinner. Breakfast is pricey. Don't trust the website. This hotel is not concerned about dietary restrictions in anyway.More

I checked our reservation system and we have you scheduled for Sunday Brunch on May 22 at 1:15. This is a full brunch menu (breakfast items and lunch items) and not an afternoon tea. Thank you very much.
