This grocery is the bomb.com. It's a foodie paradise upon entrance. Staying in a hotel can make eating good and healthy a bit troublesome at times but this market has resolved that issue. I can buy weekly quantities of fresh cooked veggies and prepared meats...More

The chicken shawarma was delicious. With the extra hot sauce, you can eat it all day. The delivery was on time.

Oh how I love Phoenicia. Do not think of this as a “specialty” grocer. While you absolutely can find a broad range of middle eastern foods, you can also find interesting versions of EVERYTHING you’d find in any good high end grocery store. Endless selection...More

not a lot of grocery stores on the hotel area around the convention centre but this is good in a pinch. Specialty foods mostly with a freshly prepared food bar - both hot and cold.

Love this location close to work. The bakery section has amazing fresh pastries. They have a wide range of cheeses as well as wines. If you need something quick for lunch they have an amazing array of food choices.

The answer is yes. There are stairs but an elevator is available. Some of the rows are narrow but you should be able to get along fine. The employees are very helpful and will assist you with anything you may need.
