A modern hotel , but lifted above typical uniformity by imaginative decor. However it is the excellent, friendly, and helpful staff, (across all departments) that make this facility stand out. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. They made us feel important to them, they were eager to offer help to make our brief stay comfortable and efficient. I would recommend this hotel without reservation. In a crowded itinerary around the N.E. of the U.S., this is the hotel that stands out, including some that were much more expensive and nominally with wider facilities. But it is the staff that make the difference !

We had a nice quiet room away from the elevator that was clean and fresh. Free internet is always a bonus especially in nicer hotels like Hilton. The staff was courteous and friendly yet professional. Very helpful and looking to make you feel welcomed. We did not encounter any problems. They served breakfast options at reasonable prices. Wish we could have stayed for breakfast but had to run out early. Complementary coffee, teas and water is always welcomed coming and going. Several restaurants and 24 hour WalMart all within walking distance.

I stayed here a couple of times a few years back and loved it, so I was really looking forward to stopping for one night on my way thorough Wilkes-Barre again. I love the location, and enjoy walking over to Wal-Mart, eating at Red Robin and getting coffee at Starbucks. There is a Japanese steak house next door as well, although I never tried it. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are quiet, even the one we stayed in next to the elevator. Like others have mentioned, check-in was slow and not a welcoming smile to be found. We had a room with two queen sized beds, and here was the problem. Apparently the beds are supposed to be new technology – The Garden Sleep System - that is self adjusting, but you can also adjust the firmness if you know that the controls are up in the corner of the mattress under the sheet and mattress cover somewhere. I found that out in the morning from the person at the front desk when I complained about how both beds seem to sag badly in the middle. Apparently they were turned way back. With two of us in one bed, I was the one who spent most of the night crawling toward the edge. So, if you choose to stay there, please remember to read the instructions to adjust the bed. The front desk didn't tell me about it when I checked in, but they certainly told me it was my fault when I checked out.

Room Tip: Remember to adjust the bed.

As a Diamond member, the hotel staff made checkin very efficient as they already pre-checked me in. The hotel is like-new. Free coffee and hot chocolate as usual. Wine out front to pay by the glass. No complaints.

The morning staff at the front desk assisted us with directions and free coupons (free fake slot play) at the Mohegan Sun Casino. There is a lot of new malls and restaurants in this area. We will definitely stay here when in the area again.

Small, conveniently located and staffed with helpful people. 24 hour pool and whirlpool access is great because it allows you to really use the facilities. The food at the hotel was delicious and priced below what hotels usually charge. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious.
