The enchantment of Merry Olde England returns to Hilton Anaheim when the hotel’s inspired British-themed Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch once again delights guests on Sunday, May 11. Back again this year by popular demand, the royal brunch will be served in the hotel’s Mix Restaurant and Lounge from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. and promises to be as entertaining as it is scrumptious.
In keeping with the royal theme, the exquisite brunch will feature items like honey baked ham with crusty brown sugar glaze, garlic and peppercorn encrusted prime rib, sushi and sashimi, butter poached halibut, pineapple infused rotisserie chicken, salads and traditional breakfast fare, as well as some of the Queen’s favorites, including quiche and scones, plus an assortment of desserts. There will also be a children’s menu.
For reservations, visit the dining section at http://www.hiltonanaheimhotel.com/anaheim-dining.aspx to book your reservation via OpenTable.com. The cost is $49 per adult guest and $52 with sparkling wine service. The cost for children 12 and under is $20. Tax and gratuity are not included. Complimentary valet and self parking is offered to all brunch guests.
But there’s much more to the brunch than just the food. The majestic experience will begin when mothers are heralded by trumpeters as they enter through the main lobby entrance adjacent to the lushly landscaped outdoor Grand Plaza with its sparkling fountains and river of lights.
The centerpiece of this majestic event is a custom-built royal throne fit for a queen that will be in place in the lobby, where it will serve as a regal stage for moms and their families to enjoy a one-of-a-kind photo opportunity. Once seated on her throne, each mom will be asked to don a bejeweled crown and hold a scepter to complete the sovereign setting.
Facebook users are invited to participate in an online promotion entitled “Queen for a Day” that asks them to write in 1,000 characters or less why their mom or wife deserves to be treated like a queen. First prize is a weekend getaway for Mother’s Day at the hotel that includes a spa treatment for her and bunch for the immediate family. The winner will be selected by Hilton Anaheim and announced on May 5. All entrants will receive a coupon for Mix. https://www.facebook.com/HiltonAnaheimHotel/app_184344028383701
After brunch, guests will be invited to enjoy a complimentary ride in an authentic horse-drawn carriage where they can enjoy the romantic sound of clip-clopping hooves on the pavement as the carriage glides along Convention Way not far from Orange County’s beloved Sleeping Beauty Castle at the Disneyland Resort.
