I have good and bad things to report. First, the good - as a conference facility the Hilton couldn't be better. It is located near Interstate 75, it's easy to find (I found it alone and after dark), the parking is ample and well lit, and shopping is nearby. The conference rooms are well appointed with a knowledgable staff, the room temperature was perfect, and excellent food was provided for breakfast and other breaks. Another highlight was Albert's, the on-site restaurant. Albert's was more like fine dining than hotel food. Now the bad - I spent two nights there, checking in late at around 8:30 PM. My room wasn't ready yet. I heard this same report from numerous other guests. The front desk told me to have a drink at the bar and handed me a voucher. What I wanted was to relax, shower, and review some notes. When I got in my room, I found the carpet worn and stained, the room did not smell fresh, and I had to clean the bathroom sink before I could use it. The hallway carpets are also worn and stained. My room TV was great and the work desk was nicer than most, but the rooms need upgrades for sure. Our meeting sponsors did an outstanding job planning and presenting, so all things considered, it was very worthwhile.
