This HGI property is part of complex consisting of the HGI and a Hilton Suites on the other side of the parking lot. The two hotels are separated by a large conference center. Access to the HGI is easy from the adjacent freeway. Getting the most irritating negative out of the way, parking is terrible, and even access to the covered front entry can be difficult due to large idling buses blocking the area. When there is an event at the conference center - as there was during my stay - the parking spaces in front of the hotel are completely full, forcing a guest to parking in a garage across from the hotel. If it's raining or windy, and particularly if you have bags, the trek from the garage to the hotel is not pleasant. Parking and access to the hotel detract from what is in other respects a nice property.
Once you manage to make it into the hotel, the property is a nice HGI location. Staff is friendly and efficient. The pantry is well-stocked and offers a good selection of spirits and other beverages. The five-floor hotel appears well-maintained. My room was clean and had the usual HGI amenities. I will say that the matress - at least the one in my room - need replacing, as I felt I was sleeping in a bowl (I had to roll in order to get out of bed). The main floor offers the usual HGI features (restaurant, laundry, business center, workout area).
As a Diamond HHonors member that visits many Hilton-branded properties, on balance, I'd rate this HGI property was OK for a one-night business trip stay. The parking situation was very irritating, and would likely cause me to look for a comparable HGI location elsewhere for my next trip to this area.
