There are a lot of things going for this hotel.
The location is excellent, surrounded by great restaurants, public transportation, shopping - you name it. Decor is modern, rooms are spacious and fixtures are mostly new. The beds are comfy, the view out the window is pleasant and urban, and the work area desk and chair are very useful.
But for a person on business, there are several hassles that will probably help me decide to look for other options:
1. Elevators - I am currently staying at the hotel. Waiting for elevators in the morning (there are 6 elevators for 32 floors) is a matter of *3-5* minute wait. That is plain, outright unacceptable. I know the hotel is packed and busy but that is wasted downtime to get in and out of your room. This especially affects you if you are on an executive floor and have access to the lounge on the 32nd floor. Getting an elevator up to the lounge can take that long. In short - a difficult to fix situation and a troubling fact you need to plan around (i.e. leave earlier, less time for breakfast).
2. Networking - WiFi speed is ok. Other hotels in the area (namely the Westin Harbour Castle) have terrific speeds and offer both wired and wireless connections. The Hilton only offers wireless connections.
3. Too few power outlets - There are two at the work area... and then you need to start hunting and searching... like tapping into the one behind the side table near the bed.
I will add that the executive lounge breakfast was ho-hum (soupy scrambled eggs are not my thing, no vegetables) but those are minor nits.
So with these business-travel biases I must say again - very decent hotel, but one that does not have my needs in mind.
