You can't beat this location but sometimes the staff isn't too smart on helping you get the type of room you prefer. We have Hilton Honors Gold membership which should help get us some sort of minimal preference but it doesn't seem to work here. We ask (when making reservation AND at check-in) for a high floor, quiet room away from vending machines. We've stayed here at least 6 times and never got a high floor. This time she gave us a room next to vending machines AND the staff elevator which was NOT quiet. When we checked in at 3 p.m. it was quiet but when the staff went home after 4 p.m.it started whining and rattling. We had to go through the hassle of changing to another room.
If you are going to have children sleeping on the fold-out couch in the living area be forewarned that loud parties and gatherings at the bar/dining area can be .... loud. Fortunately, you can't hear them from the bedroom.
Very, very efficient and friendly woman cooking omelets.
Positive: Location for the King Street Station is perfect and there is a Whole Foods one block behind - convenient for take-out. An excellent choice for tourists.
Negative: There are NO trash cans by the vending machines or elevator. If you get take-out for dinner the dirty containers stay in your room all night and the wastebaskets in the room don't even have plastic bag liners. We like to get food trash like that out of our room at night, are used to taking it down to a vending area, so as to not attact bugs, etc, to the room. People were just putting their food trash outside their doors, it stayed there all night. Not nice.
