This was one of the best stays I've ever had in a Hilton.
The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The employees at the front desk always greeted me with a smile when I walked in the front door. Gin, the concierge for the Executive Lounge, does a tremendous job of creating a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere in the lounge. He is an absolute credit to the hotel.
My room was immaculate and well appointed. All of the furniture, fixtures, etc were in excellent working order. The shower stall in the bathroom had sensibly located holders for soap and toiletries.
I ate one dinner in the restaurant--I had a bowl of tomato bisque and an excellent ribeye steak.
As a Hilton HHonors Diamond member, I am entitled to free breakfast. The free breakfast is a continental breakfast. For a $4 upcharge, I had the full buffet, which included a variety of meats, eggs, fruits, oatmeal, cereals and juices. This was an outstanding benefit--my dietary restrictions make the typical continental breakfast inedible.
I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to the Phoenix area. I cannot think of a single thing to complain about. It would have been nice to have gotten an upgrade, but I appreciate that these are not always available. Besides, the room I had was perfectly nice.
