I travel frequently for work and almost always stay at Hilton properties. However, this trip was somewhat disappointing.
Check in was fairly smooth and the hotel has a cocktail hour from 5 to 6:30 where you get a coupon for 2 drinks and there are chips and crackers. This was nice, but could not cash in both coupons at once to take the drinks up to my room. I could almost understand why they do that, as underage kids would not get a hold of alcoholic beverages.
I had reserved a king bed, but got a queen. And I had too much going on to request a room change and move around. The room was clean, so I did not want to complain about the bed.
The wireless internet was not working and there was not wired connections. Since I was unable to get work done, I went to bed.
I had the heat set on low, just below the middle of the dial for temperature. During the night, I woke up to the curtains standing straight out due to the fan and it was about 80+ degrees in the room.
I got up at 5:30am to take a shower and there was very little hot water. And I tried again about 90 minutes later and it was even colder.
The breakfast was okay, but the hot options were quite greasy. The juice machine must have been running low on the concentrate as both the apple and orange juice looked like slightly dyed water, and did not have any of the juice flavor.
The location is fairly convenient and many dining options around.
