Our family had the brunch buffet. Wonderful variety of food. Great service too. I have Celiac Disease, so need to eat gluten-free. Every dish had an easy to read card telling you what it was and if it was gluten free.

The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The Circular and the Hotel Hershey are top shelf. I especially liked the chocolate creme brule.
