The Caracas Hilton is safe and secure option in a fairly dangerous city. It's definitely more oriented for business travelers. I'm a single traveler, stayed there in early April 2007.
If you're on a stopover in Caracas before going to other parts of the country, do not stay in downtown Caracas unless you actually need to spend time in the city! Otherwise it's a $50+ cab ride each way to the airport, about 45-50 minutes away in good traffic.
Hotel staff is courteous but not willing to help. They even told me a cab to a place about 5 minutes driving away would be $20, whereas the cab driver himself asked only for $5.
The "guest services" desk is a misnomer, they're no help
Rooms are decent. Bed was hard but not unbearable. Bland decorations. Bathroom needed some work and updating.
