Not sure what the hype was about taam china but they are so out of town. They dont even give you rice with your main. The szechuan crispy chicken was very good and the general gau wasnt too great. Anyone have a better place for tommorow?

waterfront is near the airport
I was going to stay there i ended up at the aloft because of the lobby and bar and my BIL was going to be there

but if i was going alone for a few days i would prob opt to be in town at the sheraton its centrally located

Thanks,going with wife and kid, but DW in general doesn't like sheratons because of past experiences. Is this sheraton nicer than others?

I'm not sure me myself i never stayed there

aloft was nice but its like a self serve hotel
westin was my first bet
and for family might be nice

but it had a very corporate dry feel from the pics

not sure about other sheratons but this one pretty nice. The room was pretty small but not sure if other hotels in the area have any bigger regular rooms

Milk Street Cafe is only downtown option (not cholov yisrael). Check their hours since they are closed on Sunday and early during the week.
