When I checked in, the staff were very friendly and thanked me for being a Hilton Honors member. I had booked a room with 2 queen beds since I was sharing a room with my father, but they had a sense of humor and joked that room had only a king bed. The bed I had was very comfortable, very supportive without being too hard or too soft, and even the pillows, typically the bane of my typical hotel experience, were comfortable and supportive as well. The hotel is still undergoing renovation, so the pool area was closed, which meant no enjoyment of the hot tub could have been taken, but I'm not complaining about that. I think renovation is necessary.
I have to have my room completely dark in order to sleep well, but there was a lot of what I will call "light leakage" in my room. First, there is a nightlight built-in to the bathroom mirror. A nice techie touch, but it meant I had to close the bathroom door. There was an orange glow from the alarm clock (who uses a hotel alarm clock anymore when we all cell phones?) that I had to put my dirty sock over. But the most annoying light leakage came from the significant space between the floor and the door that caused a lot of light from the hallway to come in. I will say the blackout curtain was wonderful.
The breakfast was nice, but really Hilton, why do you charge $15.95/person for a buffet breakfast in addition to the price of the room? Why can't it just be included in the price? It's pretty much on par with what is served at BW's or Holiday Inn breakfasts. Seriously, get with the program.
All around, I had a very nice, 1-nights stay at this location and I recommend it to other travelers.
