Friendly bartender with good conversation and good drinks. The bar was very comfortable as it had low chairs, The TV was on but not so loud as to drown out conversation with others at the bar.

The bar choices are very limited. They had two brands of beer on tap - one was Lone Star and one was Sam Adams. Does not make any attempt to offer mainstream brands.

Great martinis and quesadillas! Bartender was quick and friendly. Not much more you could ask for in a hotel bar.

This is a nice enough space, but the staff isn't able to meet the needs of the number of customers it seats. Thus, if the place is close to full, you will have a frustrating experience.

Great selection of wines and cocktails! The margaritas were tasty. Relaxing seating and good service. There was piano music throughout the evening.

The bartender went out of her way to help me choose a new wine. It was a little more expensive than I expected, but I never looked at the wine list -- so that's on me. I LOVED the piano player! The bar has plenty of comfortable seating, and is a nice place to visit or wait on your party.

The lobby bar was quite comfortable- seating was comfy. The drinks were creative - the first night the bartender made a great drink with raspberries and I loved it. Staff was friendly and helpful except for a male bartender who didn't want to be there we thought.

The NBA playoffs were on during my stay- they had a great big TV comfy chairs, good food and nice wine at hand. After a long day at the local hospital with a suck family member this was just what the doctor ordered.

Stopped and had a few drinks and appetizers; service was great but like any hotel bar it's expensive. Food was great and everything was done nicely.
