1. Door to room was difficult to open due to hardware problems. 2. Several of our party had issues with their room upon arrival. 3. Be wary of additional parking fees upon departure. 4. Calls to room service went unanswered. 5. Parking garage is not Handicap friendly.

The service was poor. My room was never made up. There was a huge hole in our bathroom wall. We looked out onto a concrete slab. The staff was not helpful in finding places to eat. We were told to go to places that were closed. When I asked for more towels, the towels were placed on our desk and the cleaning person never looked to see if the room was made up. They never took our old towels.

Rooms were incredibly spacias. The staff was helpful. However, I have never had to pay for parking at any Hilton property. I would like to tell you that our waitress, Sukki was not only courteous, but helpful

I like this hotel and chose it because of a previous stay. The suites have a very elegant look. I felt very comfortable. I originally reserved a king room, but due to my early arrival, there was not one available. I was placed in a room with double beds. I was okay with that. Overall, my stay was very good. The only exception was that I did not have any stirrers for my coffee on my last day there. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 4th of July weekend. Lots of problems! Elevators weren't working properly. We saw someone get stuck in one on the lobby level. Check in gave us the wrong room number. Took 2 trips back to the desk to get things straightened out. A/C in hallways were broke. We saw people bringing fans up the elevator because their room A/C wasn't working. Room didn't have enough towels for our family of 4. We called on the first night and got more, but then the next day after they cleaned we didn't have enough again. No sheets or pillow cases for pull out couch. Had to call for those too. Very frustrating. The room was nice, but the whole place had a funny smell. Not really worth the price.

Right, I'll start with the positives:
Spacious (possibly even luxurious) room
Friendly staff at reception and in the hotel bar, which, incidentally, is a great bar!
Great gym in the attached Capital Club

But sadly that is it. For the price I paid, I was not overly impressed.

Breakfast was not included, cost the best part of $20 and the food was matched with equally abysmal service. Fortunately Danny's Deli next door was able to meet my breakfast needs from day 2 onwards.

$10 a day for wifi... Really, in this day and age, especially given the room rate, this should be free.

The two and coffee for the coffee maker in the room was seldom replenished.

In general, this was the second, and, by a long way, second best, of the two Hiltons I stayed at during my trip.

The rooms are a bit pricey, and on top of it you have to pay an additional $22 for parking and $10 per day for internet! WiFi is free at almost every hotel I've ever stayed at, It's ridiculous that in 2014 this hotel forces customers to pay extra for WiFi access when it costs the hotel almost nothing to set up a few routers. Completely uncalled for. Also there is no free breakfast, that will also cost you extra.

The rooms themselves were very roomy and luxurious. However the shower water would not get hot, the coffee maker was not cleaned, and the remote for the TV didn't work. Can't say I recommend this hotel considering when you add everything up you will be paying too much.
