Hop to These Five Hotels for Easter Brunch

The Taj Boston will serve a view with Easter brunch.

Here's what's fun about Easter: bunnies, holiday candy and good eats. What's not so fun about the holiday is cooking said good eats and, even worse, doing the dishes. This year, get out of the kitchen and let someone else do the Easter cooking.

We rounded up five places you can get a tasty hotel brunch, so that you can focus on chillaxing with family and friends rather than cooking and cleaning.

· Keswick Hall
Carnivores will want to line up for brunch at this Virginia, hotel. The buffet will serve dishes like butterfly-split grilled leg of lamb with fresh mint and garlic pesto, pan-roasted Virginia duck with a cassoulet, and sauteed Shenandoah chicken breast with a fricassee of butternut squash and new onions. As part of the festivities, your little jellybean can join an egg hunt. Brunch costs $70.

· Taj Boston
You can get sloshed at the Taj's Champagne brunch on Sunday. The $66 meal ($30 for children) will include waffles, seafood, antipasti, sushi, lemon risotto and grilled salmon medallions with beurre blanc. There also will be a selection of Indian dishes. The Easter Bunny will pop up at the rooftop brunch to hang with the kiddies as they decorate holiday cookies.

· The Westin St. Francis
The San Francisco hotel's Easter buffet will have made-to-order omelets, sushi, seasonal fruits, cheeses and hand-carved meats. What might show up the food is the egg roll contest and bonnet parade that will be held during the meal for little ones. The food costs $59 or $29 for kids; the Easter activities are free for brunchers.

· Grand Del Mar
Be sure to save your appetite for brunch at this San Diego hotel. Offerings will include everything from traditional hot cross buns to cherrywood-smoked clams to thyme-marinated leg of lamb and Chilean sea bass with grilled tomatillos. After they clean their plates, kiddies can do egg races and Easter crafts. It costs $85 and $30 for kids.

· Affinia Chicago
If buffets aren't your thing, try brunch at the hotel's C-House. The à la carte menu features dishes like buckwheat crepes with duck confit, shitaki mushrooms, spinach, Gruyère and a poached egg, as well as the whitefish boudin eggs Benedict with Meyer lemon hollandaise on sourdough. But we might just order a plate of the sweet potato doughnuts.
