I was pleasantly surprised to find probably the most comfortable bed ever in this recently updated facility. The staff did admirably well hosting our state meeting and efficiently handling multiple banquet and meeting events. No charge for parking was a plus!

I like to stay at Hiltons because they are predictable, clean and have a courteous staff....... Usually. I was here for only one night on a business trip. I opened the drapes and there was a quart sixed zip lock bag on the floor. I went to sit down in the chair and there was a cardboard pull strip from some package on it. I went to brush my teeth and after the water ran for about 20 seconds, the sink would not drain. Obviously whomever was supposed to clean the room did not do a very good job. I have stayed in this hotel before and never had a room like this.

I had to meet someone from Tallahassee at this hotel for a fairly brief one (1) plus (+) hour meeting and they were late so I asked to see a room to get an idea of the hotel. None at all were clean yet I was told because they had been booked solid the night before - the time was after 1 p.m. so that is understandable. Staff seemed very nice and friendly, the lobby and adjacent restaurant and seating areas were well-kept. Parking can be a bit tough because this hotel being right near the University is apparently a staple in many people's travel. All in all, it seemed nice, but again, I have never had the opportunity to actually see a room. Also, I was very disappointed to learn that a previous exceptional restaurant manager is no longer there and only left a couple of weeks ago - and the position has not been filled. Wonder what the future will bring?

Checked in for a 2 night stay for a conference on the premises. Check-in was quick and staff accommodating. They told me that room that I was assigned was on a pet-friendly floor, and since I'm not much for pets I asked to be moved and they accommodated my request. Cleanliness of the hotel is the issue that I had. The ice machine had trash and "stuff" in the drain pan area and the guest room wasn't clean, especially the bed. Housekeeping responded to correct the problem. Conference area was maintained adequately and the meals provided for the conference were good. Parking lot was adequate and well-maintained. A little concerned when there was 2 or 3 police on the premises in the evenings. Someone reminded me "It is a college town." Probably won't stay there again.

This hotel, while very nicely appointed, does not offer free internet in the guest rooms unless you are a member of their awards program. Also - the rooms do not have refrigerators. This was a big disappointment to us. We did not make travel arrangements, our employer did. We actually selected another nearby hotel which offered free internet, refrigerators in the room, and breakfast (aka more coffee!). Unfortunately the person making the arrangements for us thought we would rather stay here, and without asking, booked the room. Adding the cost of Internet access ($10/day) raises the cost for this hotel.
