This is really the place to stay. Olives restaurant is incomparable. The pool is fine. Don't expect super big or fun for the kiddies but it was sufficient for mine to have a bit of fun for about an hour. Rooms are great and comfortable. Overall a really nice stay and there probably isn't much else in town to compare... More

Front desk personel made parking explanation very cdnfusing as we were informed that due to a hockey game that night we had to enter at the rear of the parking ramp. (For some reason I don't understand?) This was not the case and we were indeed able to enter that evening... More

We were in a double queen bed room. The room was clean and look nice. However the key piece of furniture in the room was the worst and it was the bed. I would stay here again only if the mattresses were replaced.

I stay at this Hilton at least once a week for work. The desk staff is polite and competent. The room is always very clean--including the bathroom (this is important to me), furnishings are in excellent condition. The rooms are vey quiet. Even the K-cup coffee and tea is good quality.

Rooms are good but odor in hallways poor I stay at Hilton properties weekly and this is not a true represenative of the quality you should get at one of their properties. The issue is only hallways odor which is felt by others in the hotel during my stay and on previous stays at this location

This hotel is located across from the Verizon Wireless arena and close to a variety of places to eat and drink, making it the perfect place to stay when attending a Maverick's game. The hotel is clean with great accommodations.

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel and I am always pleased. It is very clean, aesthetically pleasing, quiet, conveniently located to the event center with easy access to downtown. Very war and welcoming, the staff is amazingly friendly and helpful.

The hotel was extremely awesome. A good place to spend the night for the hotel and scenery. Hot tub was not working when I stayed with family though the staff was very friendly and very clean rooms. Food was exceptional!

The Brunch was disappointing-items were not replenished and things were cleared while I was still eating! I do not feel I got my value for the price of the brunch. The bed was very hard to the touch-it didn't sleep all that bad but felt very firm. Not very welcoming....
