This was my second visit to this Hilton property on the Arcadia/Monrovia border, just off the I-210 freeway. This hotel is starkly modern, with unconventionally designed rooms. You may find them attractive and functional, or not! There is a large desk on wheels, so you can move it around to your liking, and a built-in couch with large ottoman. Very comfortable. However, the flat screen TV is wall mounted and does not swivel, so from the couch the viewing angle is not ideal. The bathroom also is unconventional, from the sliding door, to the vessel sink to the large walk-in shower. The lighting around the mirror is a bit weak.
I was up-graded to an "executive" floor, however the room seemed to be exactly the same as a standard room. Maybe the upgrade was the plus bathrobe in the closest?
A warm cookie is offered at check-in and the desk staff are exceptional. (Especially Christina!)
Great location, with both Red Lobster and Claim Jumper restaurants just outside the front door, and other eating and shopping options available just a few short steps down the street. Yes, I do mean walk!
One last oddity for this property is that there is no artwork in the rooms or the hallways or elevator lobbies.
Good rate, definitely will get a return visit!
