“Have stayed here for years: a solid Hilton hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Been here every summer for four years running. As a Hilton Diamond for the last 7 years, I have seen them all, and I have been responsible for at least one property losing their association for poor results.

I can say with great experience that this hotel is one of the better Hiltons, and is truly the best and smartest place to stay in NW Indiana.

Really enjoyed our stay at this Hilton. Walking distance to watch the TinCaps play was an added bonus. Close to our venue for AAU basketball games. Friendly staff and very helpful. Very clean and comfortable!

The Hilton in downtown Fort Wayne is the best property in the area. Fort Wayne does not have much of a downtown experience yet but if you have business or pleasure downtown this is the place to stay!

We have stayed here on a couple of occasions and it has always been a very pleasing time. The hotel itself is gorgeous. The breakfast in the morning is delicious. The staff has been excellent and has been able to meet every request.

The rooms are the typical spacious size for a Hilton and the beds are beyond comfortable. The business center is stocked with the latest and greatest computers including iMacs! The WiFi works wonderfully and was fast enough for video. The staff was able to accommodate a late checkout time.

We typically stay here when we plan on going to 2-3 Fort Wayne Tincaps games, the city's minor league baseball team. The hotel's restaurant "Cutz" is impeccable as is the room service. The lobster ravioli is truly a five star dish and one of the most well known dishes in the entire city. While there is not much nightlife after going to a game, the hotel's lounge offering a full bar and snacks in a comfortable setting is quite great for a nightcap. If you are looking to try something new and exciting, the hotel is just a couple blocks from J.K. O'Donnell's a true Irish Pub with its only other location in Ireland itself!

On the downside, this is not much of a family friendly location. The pool area is very poor and there is no hot tub, minuses for adult travelers as well. Amazingly, there are no pay movies available on the tv. As little as there is to do in downtown Fort Wayne nearly every guest will have some down time and movies would be a great option. I am an extensive traveler and find this incredible they do not have this feature.

There is a parking fee of $7 a night. THIS IS A POSITIVE PEOPLE. I cannot believe all of the comments in reviews I have read of a parking fee...First, if you were to pay for the parking yourself it would be $14 a day. The Hilton is using their clout to save you money. Second, to complain about $7 a day for hotel parking is just wild. You have to pay for downtown parking in every city. To put things in proper prospective, I pay over $60 a night to park at a hotel in Chicago and that is a standard rate. Indianapolis $25. If you are someone who would seriously complain about such a great rate they are offering you, go stay at the Motel 6, you will not appreciate the experience of staying at such a fine establishment in the first place.

What a great stay. Warm, welcoming staff and nice clean room. Hotel has a bar, restaurant and great fitness center. Best of all, everything worked. I'm in hotels 60 nights a year, and lately it seems like nothing has been working. A nice relaxing stay here, great place.

We wanted a night away from the kids and this was a nice place in the downtown area. Great room. Great view. Clean. A walk away to Parkview Field. We kept saying we would do this again next year. We didn't try the pool, or other amenities, but were very pleased with our room.

I travel here for work about twice/month and try to stay at this hotel whenever I can. I get a great value with corporate account, otherwise would probably just stay closer to the highway but I enjoy the downtown for various restaurants and for a good walk around the baseball teams field.

I've been coming here for about two years and haven't had any issues at all. I don't see how some on this site can talk badly about the rooms. Yeah, the decor isn't fascinating but come on...it's Fort Wayne, IN. You can't expect tropical. The rooms are always clean, consistent, and the beds are the most comfortable sleep you're going to get when traveling to Fort Wayne. What else can you want when on a work overnight stay.

The breakfast is pretty good in the morning but nothing overly impressive. My Diamond status gets me for free and I generally have something small because I don't feel like I need to get my money's worth...so I'm not one to give high level advice on this one. When I travel for work, I generally have a choice of Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn or Hampton Inn...with the occasional Hilton Garden or Courtyard sprinkled in. So when I stay in Fort Wayne, this is generally the place I choose to stay and it's a treat for me during work travel.

Keep it up Hilton Fort Wayne.

This was an okay hotel. The bathroom had hairs in the corners by the bathtub. Didn't like the bathroom door being where it was which gave you no room to dress or undress if you were staying with someone. DID NOT like to pay for parking also! Loved Ft. Wayne. Beautiful and clean city!
