I have, when available, stayed exclusively at Hilton properties now for 20+ years no matter where in the world I am for business.
When I called from the airport, the driver was there promptly to pick me up (within 15 mins.) and was very helpful. I asked about where to eat for dinner within walking distance and he gave me multiple choices including the hotel. When I checked in the lady at the reception desk told me I had been upgraded to a suite on the 15th floor. The room was what I come to expect from Hilton and Double Tree, clean, comfortable, functional. The one minor annoyance with the room was that the wall mounted fire alarm was chirping because it needed a new battery. I called to have maintenance come up and fix this and it was done before I could get back upstairs from getting a sandwich to go!
I decided on the hotel restaurant as I had been traveling all day and didn't want to walk 4 blocks. I asked the hostess if I could just get something to go and she handed me a menu. As it was dinner time, the menu reflected that with pretty pricey entrees for what I wanted. The hostess offered that it wasn't on the menu, but that she could have the cooks make me a Club sandwich with fries, they did, it was prompt, and also very good and under $10 total!
Next morning had a great breakfast buffet, Terry my server was there at every turn making sure everything was just right. Kimberly, the hostess had a great smile and was very welcoming and seated me promptly.
The only thing for me that would make this location better would be some local fare restaurants closer to the property.
Over all I think the management here needs to be complimented on doing an outstanding job, not only for the people that they are hiring but also for the attention to detail. I have come to realize from spending so much time in hotels, that (for me) it's the little things that make a stay either good or bad.
