Came here with the gf one night when we needed a place to crash for a few hours before we had to both get up for work. I pulled up into the Hilton, and was easily able to take my pick of parking spots. They have an extensive parking structure located behind and to the side of the hotel as well as ground floor parking in the front. Best of all, parking is free (unlike the Marriott)!
The pricing is rather expensive if you don't book ahead of time. But that was to be expected. I paid nearly $300 for a 2 queen bed room (only room they had left apparently) but was offered a discount since we were checking in at like 3am in the morning and was leaving in 6hrs.
They have a beautiful fountain in the lobby area, and the hotel floor itself is massive! I've been here in the past for conventions and it is easy to get lost in here. The hallways are clean and modern, and the rooms itself are warm and inviting. The beds are soft, though I miss the mints on the pillow. The room comes with your standard coffee/tea packets + coffeemaker, mini bar food (very pricey like all mini bar food), and flat screen TV.
There is plenty of shopping available nearby at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center with various dining establishments located within. Or if fast food is more your style, there are several fast food chains located in the opposite direction.
Overall I would recommend this place if you are looking for a place to stay near this area and are able to secure more affordable rates ahead of time.
