We've stayed all over Athens. As far as the Athens Hilton goes it is a great hotel. The amenities are plentiful even including a children's wading pool and all night room service that included items that were perfect for our toddler. The prices are to be expected for a hotel in this class meaning drinks and food were very expensive. However right now you can get a deep discount on room rates through the winter. The security was heightened a few times due to events and foreign delegations visiting the hotel but it wasn't an inconvenience. Our room was well appointed and I appreciated having a separate shower and tub (for the toddler). I was surprised there were cracks and general signs of age in the room and bathroom but it still had the luxury feel and no service was compromised. It was a great hotel for bringing a toddler, the locks on the balcony doors were up high so there was no chance of the baby opening the door. The sound proofing on the door/windows was perfect. Everything was just as it should be for a hotel of this class, nothing really stands out as exceptional but I think this is a very classy hotel.
