I have stayed at this Hilton a number of times and had a fine experience, particularly when staying in a suite room. I recently booked for a quick night out of town for an anniversary and figured a nice king room would do. Big mistake.
I paid an extra 20-30 dollars for the King "Corner" Room. When I checked in, the front desk even repeated "We have you set up in a wonderful King Corner Room." There is no way our room is on the corner of anything. It is is the center of a row of ordinary rooms on the front side of the hotel. To make matters worse, the room is adjoined to what must be a double room that has several loud guests in it. You can hear their loud conversation and television through the adjoining doors, which are not sound proofed.
My wife is tired and is sleeping through it so I don't have the heart to wake her, but now I'm sitting up at 1 in the morning in a room I did not book typing this stupid review. If this hotel is wiling to dupe Hilton gold member which I am, I suspect they do this to anyone below Diamond. Either save yourself the money and book a normal king, or just upgrade to the suite for fear you get stuck with a loud adjoining room, or book somewhere else entirely.
I should also note the room has a strange musty odor. Definitely the last time I stay here in anything below a suite. And there are plenty of other options in the area that may be cheaper for a nicer room.
