4.5 stars...The hotel is near several others in a busy area with many restaurants nearby. The room was spacious (10th floor Hilton Honors room), it had ample closet space and three large dresser drawers. The room showed very minimal wear and the furnishings were very nice. The computer desk was large and the wi-fi worked well for us. The bed was very comfortable and the room was especially clean. The only thing missing for a room that size was a refrigerator/honor bar. Some reviews complained of noisy HVAC units, but you could select the fan speed which controlled the noise. Ours gave us enough white-noise to cancel out the traffic sounds from the street below and we slept great. The bathroom, although very small, was bright and modern with a granite or marble counter top. What we saw of the conference rooms looked very nice and the business center was great.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially the desk staff and Marta in the restaurant. The valets have somewhat of a language barrier but not too bad. One of their drivers took us to the airport in a full-size sedan for $50 which was worth the upgrade from a small taxi at $43.
The breakfast buffet at $17 is quite pricey, but it was very nice. There are standard buffet items and an omelet/waffle/pancake bar. The only disappointment at the hotel bar were the bumbling bartenders who made us lousy margaritas and charged us $28 for two, but it appeared one of them was in training, so we let it go.
Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend it and would gladly stay there again.
