Staying here for 4 days on business and the staff here has made it feel like home. Gabriel and Gloria's good morning talks at breakfast made a great start to our morning. Advice on traffic and always remembered where we were going for business. Multiple people at the front desk made our stay pleasant. Great recommendations for area attractions and... More

We had an absolute terrible stay but hilton corporate took care of us and was very helpful and I am very grateful for them. The poor lady online was very kind. The staff was fine but the amount of money was not worth the stay unless the update room with new look, furniture, and carpets.

While this chain has a brand name, this site really lacks in execution. On the surface the lobby is nice, the staff is friendly, but scratch a little deeper and the performance is lackluster - to put it kindly. We had an amply sized accessible room. One would think out of self interest - that such rooms would have heightened... More

I've stayed at this hotel for several months in 2014, once in 2015, and one night in 2016. The first time was great, well managed and great breakfast! Now, the place needs to remodel some rooms...musty smell when we walked in room on 5th floor, although once inside, the smell didn't linger. The tile in bathroom needs replacing and the... More

This is a nice hotel whose real strength is the staff. These guys are always right there to help with whatever you need. The breakfast is OK, especially if you get the cooked breakfast and I ate at the restaurant for the first time this trip. For the restaurant, the selection isn't huge, but they do everything right. The rooms... More

Hard review to write because the staff is so great. The first room I was given had a sticky black stain about the size of a plate next to the bed. It actually made a sound when I lifted my foot (glad I had shoes on!), got a new room, that night and the next morning the entire hotel had... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend web conference and it was really nice. The lobby was very unique and they serve free breakfast in the morning. And not just bagels and pastries, a full cooked breakfast! The staff was also very helpful and friendly.
