Stayed here for a conference at the Duke Energy Center. Rates were decent given the group, but if you were just stopping in for the weekend it is up there price wise. However, this is a great hotel, the staff was friendly across the board, rooms up to date and well appointed. Old fashioned turn down service complete with chocolates...

Seattle, United States
Reviewed 28 August 2015

The bathroom and beds were the only thing that reminded me of the Hilton brand. The hotel should consider upgrading the wallpaper and carpet. The room seemed dreary and had a stale odor the entire time despite of utilizing room fresheners. The staff service was outstanding despite of this.
