Great hotel.... s l o w bar service
I recently visited Detroit for a conference at Cobo and stayed at the Crowne Plaza right across the road from the event.
Overall, everything about the hotel was top-notch in my book, but my
coworkers and I stopped by the bar after dinner for some drinks and relaxation. We can all essentially be described as information security geeks and one part of "geek" culture tends to be the tendency to imbibe when the opportunity presents itself.
We were in the bar area for about 3 hours and during that time, each of us were only served 2-4 drinks. We ordered a drink every time the waitstaff came back to the table, but they took about 10 minutes from the time our glasses were empty to return and "check on us" and then once our order was in, we didn't receive the beverages for another 15 minutes...
Overall, it was nearly impossible to have a good time at this bar. It was worse than trying to order beers at a hockey game -- like they didn't want to sell them to us or something. [Less]
