Stayed at the Hilton while attending a conference at the Convention Center. When we made our reservation months before we requested a room with a king sized bed. At checkin which was early in the day we were told they were out of rooms with king beds. ( really ????). We did get a room right away which was nice and our room was on the convention center side. The view on this side is amazing! Great view of bay and downtown. Request a room on the convention center side! The other side's view is not so great. Also get up as high as possible for the best view.
Room was fine. Decorations were simple. Room was clean. Comfortable bed, extra charge (I think $25 per day) for refrigerator and microwave.
There are nice areas outside to sit and relax if a ship at the Dole loading dock which is very close is not being loaded. This loading took 3 or 4 days and was very noisy! You also have a view of this dock from the pool and the noise.
If you are attending a conference the Hilton is very close to the convention center.
Elevators were always fast and rarely crowded.
I have stayed at two other hotels on the bay in the past. The Hilton has the best view if you get on the best side. It is also one of the
newest hotels in this area.
