Hotel was centrally located to lots of stuff. The quality for being a Hilton hotel was not what we expected. Leaking tub, room key stopped working, and they over booked the garage. Nice views, good bed, and clean hotel.

my family and I had a great time. the location of the hotel was in walking distance to Little Italy, which we had never been and enjoyed. The hotel was nice, everyone was friendly and helpful, overall a great time had. The only dislike was the parking lot for the hotel, too cramped and small, as we drove in a pickup truck. we ended up parking across the street.

This is by far the worst hotel on our California tour. We love the Hilton brand and stay with hilton almost exclusively. This location needs a serious update. The first room they put us in had a makeshift shower jacuzzi tub situation. Very low water pressure and strange setup. They then moved us to another room with a shower only. This room has poor water drainage and the water temperature was difficult to regulate. The walls are peeling wallpaper. The location is decent within walking distance to little Italy. The plus is that there is an airport shuttle. The staff is friendly but I would stay elsewhere if you have a choice. Breakfast is decent.

The hotel is in a good location, and if you happen to be around on Saturday, the Little Italy Farmers' Market is right outside the side door to the property. It is an older property, and the age does show. There is a constant in-and-out of airline flight crews at this property, so there's always traffic at the elevator and by the front desk. I did have to ask the front desk for my Diamond amenities, so if you do have status with the HHonors portfolio of hotels, keep in mind that the service you receive may differ from other property experiences.

My stay was very good because the hotel provided excellent facilities for a convention in the city. the beds were very confortable and clean. the wifi connection for keeping up with correspondence orked very good. the hotel is positioned very close to the metro train service and to very good hotels and the airport shuttle service was excellent for business trips.
