Let's start with the positive (since there isn't much). The access to 880 is great. Getting on or off 880 is very convenient. Unfortunately, the negatives far outweigh the positives. As other reviewers have noted, the quality of the property is severely lacking. The carpet in my room was stained. The tiles in the bathroom were coming loose. I had to put towels under the door to block the noise and the light. And the room overall was just bit dingy. I understand the property will be undergoing renovations soon, which should help. But, frankly these renovations are about 5 years overdue.
I was also one of the lucky recipients of the hotels "early departure fee" policy. I was scheduled to stay there 4 nights. When I checked in for the first night I told them I needed to change my plans and would only be staying 3 nights. They told me I would be subject to an early departure fee of half the nightly price of the room. It didn't seem to make sense to me that if I had a one night reservation for 3 nights from now, I could cancel it with no problem, but I couldn't make a change to a longer duration reservation. If I told them with 24 hour notice, I would understand the charge. But, with this much notice, the policy seemed ridiculous to me. As a Hilton Diamond member, I obviously spend a lot of nights in hotels (about 80-90 per year). And I have had to change reservations at check in before at various hotels. But, this is the first time I was ever penalized for doing so.
Needless to say, I will not be back at this hotel, even after the renovations are completed.
