Hotel location - a curse for restaurants?

One of the restaurants I remember from the 90's which was particularly excellent never "made it big time". Have you ever heard of chef Ken Frank?

Come to think of it, Fenix was a hotel rooftop restaurant. (An a-ha moment.) Not the kind of place you normally find the very best fine dining.

Now, a beautiful hotel like the Claremont in Berkeley has an awful restaurant, Jordan's, and I would be hard-pressed to come up with a handful of good hotel restaurants. Which ones are they?

Great restaurants and terrible restaurants at top-tier hotels. Examples please.
