We stayed at this hotel for one night while traveling through the area. There is a lot of construction and perhaps it is it at a more advanced stage then when other reviewers reviewed the place because there is a significant amount of dust in the lobby.
The outside of our exterior window and of the AC was covered with plastic, probably to protect it from construction debris. However, this meant that the air conditioner shut down from overheating every few minutes and was unable to keep the room at anything other than a stiflingly warm and humid temperature.
Someone has to mention the new decor. It is a battleship gray on gray on black color scheme with orange highlights. The pictures on the walls no longer represent real things for the most part, they are predominantly abstract splotches of orange. The black furniture combined with the overly bright blue-tinted flouescent lights and gray of the accent colors makes the guest room look like the inside of a prison. The effect is to give the place a very unwelcoming and depressing feel.
I stay in a lot Hilton properties every year including many Hampton Inns, and found this experience significantly below par.
