We just finished our first stay - an overnight during holiday shopping season. The basics - very clean, modern, and comfortable. The front desk allowed us to check in before noon, which was a pleasant surprise. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. We sensed a genuine effort to make the stay comfortable and pleasant. Very noticible in a town known more for its hard edge and blue-collar style.
The rooms were modern without being weird. The king bed was soft but not too much. An upscale room that was very inviting and surprisingly warm (in feel - the A/C works just fine). Hilton is doing a lot to change the feel so that you get all of the comforts of their higher-end properties without them flashing their names all over it. You can tell and it makes a difference.
We ended our stay with Sunday brunch in the hotel's second floor restaurant. $20 vouchers were included for both of us. I'll quickly add that this buffet was simple and very, very well done. I commented to a white-smocked chef that it was among the very best I've experienced in all of my US travels. Many fresh, organic selections that -even for a buffet- were excellently prepared and flavorful. But, I'll also add a caution: coffee and juices are extra. If you have both, plan on spending about $14 per guest on top of the vouchers, which includes an 18% service fee.
Overall, a great affordable hotel with an upscale feel. Highly recommended.
