First the good aspects - Great location, close to the Coca Cola Museum, Aquarium, Olympic Park, CNN, and many restaurants. (But see my caution below). Conveniently, it has a Legal Seafood in the hotel (can't go wrong there). Genuinely friendly and helpful staff. Free cookies in the lobby. Plus it's nice to have a safe and refrigerator in my room.
However, the heater and refrigerator in my room were incredibly noisy. Luckily they didn't cycle on very often, but about 3 times per night I was awake listening to them. In addition, the counter card in the lobby boasted about the mattresses that can be adjusted to your preferred firmness. I tried dialing my mattress to different levels, but it never seemed to change beyond soft and cushiony. I was there for 2 nights and saw two different arrests within a block of the hotel - not sure if I was just "lucky" or if there's a crime problem in the neighborhood. But I definitely did not walk alone or go out for a run while there.
Would I stay there again? I might. It wasn't bad enough to keep me away, but I also might do a little research to see what else was available before booking here again.
Sorry Hilton - I'm usually a fan, but this one could use a little attention.
