As soon as I pulled up I knew I was in the right place. The door men and women were stellar and were extremely kind. Once I arrived inside, I was led to the front desk and was quickly waited on. The young lady who helped me was in training and she done a wonderful job. I wondered what perks I would have as a Hilton Diamonds member, and the discovery that I didn't get much, was a bit if a disappointment for such an expensive hotel room. My room was very nice and extremely quiet. The workout facility was nice and I was overjoyed that I was the only one in there, so it made for a really nice workout. The only two downfalls were: 1. My cell phone got zero reception, which made me a little nervous as I don't like being without the ability to use my cell phone and receive calls. 2. My shower head was clogged, so I could not get a very small and thin outpouring of water. Luckily, I had a few extra minutes, so I took a bath instead. I am not sure I would go back, but it was definitely a nice experience.
