Our room faced North Bridge St. At about 11pm on Saturday evening loud techno/dance music started coming from the local establishment across the street. Pinky was amazing. She went out of her way to accommodate my requests and made our group welcome.

Beautiful building. No need to comment about excellent location. But inside it is so bare, soulless. You can walk through great extensions of corridors and halls, everything gray, plain, bare, no wallpaper, not a single picture hanging on the walls, like a WWII bunker. Quite...More

that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

I’m not sure. But my experience has been that they are good about that at Hilton’s. I would ring and speak directly to a manager.
