We arrived at the hotel and parked in the self parking...I believe it was $17 a night. We took the elevator up to the lobby. However, the lobby was a long walk from the elevator and there were no signs directing us.
We checked in with a very friendly young man who obviously expected a tip. When one is expected, we tend not to give one.
We entered our room and were pleasantly surprised by the size and nice appointments. It was an alcove room, which was an upgrade.
The far wall was all windows. The view was incredible.
The only time I heard another guest was from our restroom. The bedroom was extrememely quiet and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the linens were just as amazing.
Check out was a breeze.
My only complaints were the distance we had to walk from the elevator and that the water pressure in the shower was very low. Also, the tub drained too slowly.
We have stayed at the Sheraton which is next door. The Hilton was far superior!
