I have stayed at this Hilton over the years on numerous occasions. It is a monolithic, boring and totally enclosed (no balconies) structure with rooms for us normal folks equally as boring as the building. So I am not writing about the experience of having a room here - it was as expected, clean, efficient - but about the room service. I have never written about room service before but this place needs a review.
After a long day visiting the "mouse" across the street, we returned to the room with the task of trying to figure out where we could go to eat without getting the car out. I was very tired and looked at the room service menu. Now these things are usually overpriced and the extra charges seem unjustifiable. Regardless, I ordered steak medium rare, asked that the mashed potatoes be removed and some bread pudding (like turkey dressing) be substituted. I also asked for "seasonal vegetables" instead of asparagus. We also ordered salmon, a shrimp cocktail and a banana split as well. So this was not a small or normal order to say the least. They told me no problem and it would be at the room in 30 minutes. (Yeah, right!) Now for the amazing part. They brought the meals to the room in under 15 minutes. When the lids were lifted off the plates, steam was still rising off the hot food. The shrimp was perfect, the salmon was perfect and believe it or not, although not the tenderest NY steak I have ever eaten, it was hot and medium rare! The server was outstandingly friendly and told us a 17% tip had been included. We added another $5.
I notice another review about room service here and will just echo its praise. It was worth the price and amazingly served. This Hilton just got a little less boring.
