My husband and I booked this hotel very last minute on Priceline for $60 a day. We made reservations for the same night. A pretty good price!
Upon check in, we received our warm chocolate cookies and then drug our luggage through the hotel maze. Had we known our room was nearly 3 blocks away from the front desk, we would have drove around. Our 1st room's air conditioner wasn't working properly. We called maintenance and a man showed up merely 5 minutes after our call. We called the front desk and asked if we could switch rooms. They put us in a room 4 doors down with a working A/C. Within 5 minutes, another man arrived at our door with the new room keys.
Even though it was close to the freeway, we never heard any traffic sounds. The layout of the hotel is such that no matter which floor your room is on, you have to use stairs to get to. It might not be very accessible to a person with a wheelchair or someone who has a hard time climbing stairs. Yes, there is an elevator but it is still a walk depending on where your room is.
I used the fitness center once and they have two really nice Precor treadmills, one Precor elliptical, and two recumbent bikes. The cardio equipment all have televisions attached to them. There is also a water fountain, fresh towels, and multiple weight machines. Headphones are also provided for the televisions on the cardio equipment. Very nice for a fitness center!
We had to checkout very early (4:30 am). Their computers were down and so we weren't able to get a bill.
The day after we checked in, I went to the front desk to ask if our stay could be put on my Hilton Honors card. She said yes and proceeded to enter my information. A few days later when the stay didn't show up, I called and asked why. She pulled up our information and told me that because I booked on Priceline, it could not be added to my Hilton Honors card. I understand that, but it would have been nice if they lady told me that the first time.
