Food & Drink

Blue Duck serves up fresh, seasonal American cuisine with a strong focus on local ingredients. The restaurant’s star dishes include stuffed bone marrow, 45-day dry-aged rib-eye, oven-roasted pork chop and hot apple pie. Since the eatery is so popular with locals, a small number of seats are held each night for hotel guests, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Service at Park Hyatt is often referred to as spotty. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with attentive and accommodating staff. However, throughout the stay the service is not as attentive. Housekeeping has been noted to be neglectful of small detail such as refilling Nespresso capsules. Additionally, reception is not always available (especially if you come at later hours).
Despite there small faults in service, the experience was not ruined. Overall, service is decent but nothing special and not what one would typically expect of the Park Hyatt brand.
