I stayed there on June 7th when I was in town for a family event. The front desk was very accomodating in letting me check in early. I decided to book this rather than the Hampton Inn which was close by because I thought that it would be a nice step up from the Hampton Inn. The lobby is very nice, the parking lot is not the best (I don't like parking on a slope and a lot of the parking to the right of the entrance is a slope so you better engage that parking brake). The room - is no better than your Hampton Inn (which I love staying at). In fact, it might even be worse. Pealing paint in a Hilton room is not what I would have expected. When I checked in there was a delay because they were not using any "sprays" in my room. I asked them what that meant and they said no scented sprays because I had requested it...which I had not. Once I finally got up to the floor I understood why some people must request the "non-spray" rooms. The perfummy smell from the cleaners in the hallway was overwhelming...and this smell didn't go away. Thank Goodness my room did not smell as fragrant because I would have had to leave because it would have ended up giving me a headache. The horse motif throughout needs an overhaul. I guess my overall view is that if I had been paying (and not using points) I would have expected a lot more for my money. We did not use the restaurant, pool facilities or room service. I was there almost a week ago and the $50 hold they put on my credit card (in case we wanted room service, etc.) is still on there...I called and they said it could take up to 10 days to get it off - this always surprises me because I can check my account right after I check in and the hold is always there immediately...but they can't reverse the hold any quicker...
