I tried this hotel recently after 10 years of avoiding it - everything else on 202 was booked. The hotel is about the same as 10 years ago- aging decor, same low water pressure and 5 minute wait for hot water after turning on the shower, and absolutely no soundproofing between rooms and hallway - I could have participated in the conversation next door. The hallways smelled of pest control - but I guess that is a mixed blessing; rooms did not have the same odor. The buffet appeared nice, but rough textured powdered eggs and mushy fruit (probably frozen and thawed). Restaurant staff (surely not the same after 10 years?) still very rule bound - I was alone and requested to sit at a larger table to make reading the newspaper easier, and there were only two others in the dining room - I was told they were reserved for larger parties. I played the "Hilton Diamond" card and was told, well, I guess it's ok ....
The hotel is clean and safe. For my trip, it beat the cost of downtown parking and traffic. Wouldn't be my top pick from all the other choices on 202, but one can endure a short stay.
