I have stayed at many Hiltons and can say that this is not what you would expect in a Hilton. Having said that, for Cameroon this is a very nice hotel.
The rooms are nothing special, but are clean and quiet. I found the cleaning staff to be very friendly too.
With respect to the lobby and front desk there is much that could be done to improve the service. Check in was slow, and at check out I was told I could not have a copy of my bill because my company paid for it...yet my company asked me for one! I was also able to change money there the first night, but for some reason the person working the second night said I couldn't.
The food is ok, but way overpriced. More so than when I was in Chad the following week, which is ridiculous.
I am not sure what the other hotels are like in Yaoundé, but based on the service alone I would say to at least consider your other options.
