I am writing this review half way through a 10 day stay at this hotel. We are here at the tail end of a 7 week extended holiday in California, Arizona and Nevada. We decided to stay here instead of putting in an extra 1000 miles before returning home from San Diego at the end of the month.
I would rate this hotel as overwhelmingly positive. The suite is clean, modern with a comfortable king bed, two flat screen TVs (one in the bedroom and one in the living room). A complete, modern kitchen with a well stocked cupboard, a good wi-fi connection. Breakfast is nice with a wide choice in the morning, including the usual eggs, bacon, waffles, toast, yogurt, fruit salad, etc. From Monday - Thursday, the hotel offers a complimentary dinner with wine and beer. Finally, the staff could not do more for us.
However, I want to comment on the following. We arrived during the spring school break in California and Arizona. The hotel is packed with families. At breakfast and dinner, it is nigh impossible to find a table. Breakfast is served between 7 - 9 in the morning a dinner from 5 - 7 in the evening. Because of the huge number of families with young children, the dining experience is chaotic to say the least. During the school holidays, the hotel's dining hours should be expanded to compensate for the crowd. I suggested this to management and they said their dining hours are governed by Hilton corporate policy. While I understand they must follow the company's rules, the company should understand that one size does not fit all and it should make leeway for extraordinary circumstances.
My other comment is that there is no vegetarian choice on the complimentary dinner. We are vegetarians. Staff did everything they could to accommodate our vegetarian requirements. They went out and bought food for us. But, it woud have been easier for them (and perhaps for other clients who are not as vocal as we are in insisting upon vegetarian meals) that they provide a vegetarian selection up front. We were told we were the only ones requesting a vegetarian meal. While I have no doubt this was the case and again, staff were more than accommodating, would it not be easier if they could provide an alternative selection up front?
The hotel is on a major street. That said, parking is easy and the rooms are quiet.
