Need to have more vegetarian and vegan options in the menu. More cuisines / restaurants at one location rather at wasting the whole evening in shuttling to other venues. Need entertainment programs in the evening. For instance, Valentin imperial and blue moon have theaters, that keep you occupied with marvelous variety programs. Beautiful property, has great staff - but they seem to be busy and overworked. May be a little increase in staffing? That's the management's call.
