Overall I would recommend a stay at this Hilton property. Check-in was smooth and they accommodated us by giving us a room on the end of the floor (unfortunately, it was next to a stairwell and the door slammed a few times when we were sleeping but seeing as we asked for a quiet end unit, can't completely fault the hotel for this). We appreciated the fact that we could walk over to Longhorn for dinner and we liked having access to a computer & printer since we hadn't brought our laptop. The one experience we would not repeat is having breakfast at the hotel, which although it's convenient, it's completely disorganized & it was hard to find anything in the buffet that had any taste. I finally grabbed a box of Apple Jacks out of desperation. I tried everything but the bacon before I did this and even ordered an omelet, just bad. No one greeted us when we arrived and we didn't even see a person for the first 5 minutes as we tried to figure out what to do as far as ordering eggs or an omelet. When we checked in, the man stressed the fact that they had cooked to order egg items so we figured it would be passable at least. Danishes were tasteless and cold, barely thawed out. In the 30 minutes we were there, never saw a person manning the waffle station so that was out. Coffee urn was empty. Omelet was filled with overflowing unmelted orange cheese. Not sure where else you could go that's close, but it's worth asking someone. It seemed understaffed and it's a shame because the hotel lobby is quite nice and with better management (and quality food), this could be an asset to the hotel.
