This was a special Christmas for Steve and I. We decided that we would do something a little different and go out to eat on Christmas. I’ve heard so much about The Grand Bohemian Hotel and the buffet they offer, on the holidays. It was amazing! The decor from the time you enter is absolutely breathtaking. They’re known for supporting local artists and their works are displayed all over the walls.
We started into the lounge, on the main, floor where the atmosphere was somewhat casual but relaxing. Then we went up to the 5th floor, for the buffet. We arrived a little early.
Not knowing what to expect, we were escorted to a waiting room that was set up for all those who had reservations for the holiday dinner. The room had a beautifully decorated tree, artwork by the local artist covering the walls. There were tables set up along the windows where you were able to people watch from above. They had a table set up with beautiful decanters of water flavored with fresh strawberries, lemons, and cucumbers.
Then again, we were escorted, and shown the different rooms for the buffet. They were set up around a large room, in the center, where there were two musicians, a piano player accompanied by a clarinet player.
There was the carving room, an omelet station, a room full of a variety of breakfast items, then the seafood room.
In the main area, the dessert and crepe tables were set up. There was a huge chocolate fountain with all kinds of fresh fruits and cookies for dipping, and an awesome Vodka bar available with all fixings to make custom Bloody Marys.
It was a wonderful dining experience. Located at 325 S. Orange Ave. Orlando, Fl. 32801 or you can visit their website at http://www.grandbohemianhotel.com.
