That's what this USAToday story says, anyway. While I have had some great meals at hotel restaurants, and they do seem to be getting better all the time, there are still some bland, boring, and all-around awful hotel restaurants. The weird thing, as happened to me recently, was to find both an excellent and a seriously mediocre restaurant in the same hotel. Even when the food is terrific, I'd always rather dine out when I'm at a meeting, if for no other reason than to set foot out of the hotel for the first time all day. But if I'm by myself, hotel dining it is, so I'm glad to hear it's getting better all the time.
Anyway, here's Zagat's top hotel restaurant picks. Bon apetite!
