My home away from home. Clean, classy historic lobby and mezzanine, excellent central location, and last but not least, such a good team they have that ensure your stay is a comfortable one. Would recommend hands down, any day of the week.

I just stayed overnight on a Thursday eve for business (8/13-8/14), and I was disappointed. What I thought would be a grand hotel (for which I was charged a grand rate for - $185.00, total), turned out to have lost its luster. Here are the pros & cons: PROs - Loved the Panoramic Room (Room 708) - The quesadilla at the Iconic Restaurant was SUPERB - You cannot hear any other guests when you're in your room (due to solid construction methods & materials from yesteryear) CONs - The Nightly rate was too high, considering COVID-19 has really dampened the hotel's spirits (e.g. closed the gym; limited breakfast choices to bleh) - Garbage Truck @4:00 a.m. (southeast side of the building!!) Avoid!! - Street Cleaner @3:00 a.m. (with a screeching noise!!! Oy!!) - Hilton needs to clean all the windows in the hotel (they're all filthy!!) - No Turner Classic Movies (TCM) selection (It's a classic hotel - Please have classic movies!!!!) - No pen & paper provided in the room (you have to go to the front desk) - No discount given to me to stay a second night (So I left!) - The guy at the front desk was wooden/too robotic! - White Noise/Sound Machines should be provided to guests with rooms facing the garbage area and/or Genesee Street Until all amenities are open/offered, and until they do a thorough cleaning of the lobby area (it looked dingy), and all the windows, the nightly rates should be lower.

Hi GemGirl1966, Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad to hear how you appreciated the sound dampening between rooms, the old cement and stone construction definitely helps provide the most quiet hotel in the city. We haven't heard others really noticing street cleaners, but we'll make sure windows were properly closed and locked. I'd also recommend checking out Turner Classic Movies.com and streaming from your device! With the Hilton Cleanstay program we have removed items from the room that may have been handled by a previous guest, pens, glassware, towels and linens, etc, so you know your room is totally disinfected!

Dear Constantlee, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I'm glad you were able to hear a bit about our history, first opened in 1912 but you're correct, we just remodeled and opened September 2017 so our guests get the historic experience with modern amenities. We hope to see you again soon next time you stop off the Thruway!
