We had planned on staying here longer then we did. Being a Diamond Member with Hilton, we prefer this brand. But after the DAILY banging of doors (with latches) in the early morning (when we mentioned this to the GM she stated, “yes, they do that here.”), the filthy carpet in the rooms, the horrific dirty build up in the ac/ heating filters, the little to no Covid precautions (broken seal on room assigned to us as well as keeping all guests side by side by side in rooms and explained by the GM that doing so makes it easier for the housekeeping staff although much more dangerous for the guests.) For the most part Covid precautions are NOT practiced at this hotel. And be very aware that your credit card will have MANY additional holds than needed but you will be told it was the “computer.” The newly promoted Executive Housekeeper is a joke and REFUSED to address our issues, which were as simple as requesting a room cleaned for our incoming guest! She refused! And then hid from us! This hotel is obviously poorly managed. The very worst part of this experience was when we reached out to the property management company that manages this hotel, MIDDLETOWN HOTEL MANAGEMENT in BEAVERCREEK, OHIO. They dragged their feet and appeared to have very little concern for the guest experience. The President of this management company went on to tell us we had a “very pleasant stay.” Go figure! She apologized for nothing and appeared very defensive and rude. We were appalled by this entire experience. We will NEVER in the future stay in a hotel managed by MIDDLETOWN HOTEL MANAGEMENT .This hotel staff and the property management company need to revisit “The Hilton Promise.” Because the promise is badly broken here!

All went well until I got in the shower. Hairs High up. NASTY .Tried to explain about the shower they were unconcerned asked if I wanted a free coffee. Not very good Customer service. Went to a different place the next night. Due to Covid everything should have been extra clean. Advertises a restaurant in the hotel NOPE it is a bar. Best thing about this place was the Ice Machine.

Dear pattie t: I am sorry you found hair in your shower. Our team works very hard to keep every room and bathroom clean; we inspect the rooms after they are cleaned by housekeeping and follow the "clean stay" procedures set by Hilton and strive to exceed expectations every day. Please accept my sincere apologies for not meeting your expectations and know I will address your feedback directly with our team. Our restaurant was temporarily closed for December due to very low occupancies, it will reopen Tuesday January 19, 2021. If there is anything else I can do for you, please contact me at the phone number or email below. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future. Our goal is to make your stay better and brighter. If something isn't just the way you like it, simply let any Team Member know, and we will make it right. Guaranteed.

I got a room facing west. It was quiet. The bed was clean and comfy. If you like many pillows, get the room with two beds..extra pillows than! The next morning I had breakfast in the hotel...this was a nice progression! The bathroom was clean. The hotel staff was polite and friendly.

The lobby/lounge was under construction, but didn't really impact the stay. Four restaurants within easy walking distance. Nice location just a few minutes from many shopping locations. Will stay here again if in the area.
