We had one night at another casino hotel, and then moved to the Hilton downtown for three nights. We paid $25 per night for an upgrade to an "executive" suite on the 11th floor overlooking the river and casinos. The suite was spacious with two full baths, two wide-screen flat TVs, sofa, easy chair, desk, table with 3 chairs for snacks, coffee/tea-making, micro-wave, refrigerator. Everything was clean and comfortable. We found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful - valet parking was quick and inexpensive, the bellman was helpful, the shuttle service was very convenient and drivers were pleasant, dining room staff were attentive. We were frequently addressed by our names.
The buffet breakfast (included for Gold/Diamond) was ample with eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit, plentiful well-cooked bacon, grits, etc.
The only negatives we found were that we did not care for the potato skins on the evening menu. They were unusual with a strong spice, too much potato pulp and not enough cheese or sour cream. My husband (who is not as particular as I am) commented that they were the worst he's ever had. The other negative was that the doors to the hallways are not well-soundproofed. Around 3 AM, someone was pounding on a door down the corridor, and it sounded like they were at our door.
Would stay at this hotel again if we are ever back in Shreveport.
