My company's agency booked me in for a week at this hotel but I immediately put the wheels in motion for a relocation.
My room was on the second floor above the bar I assume and the entertainment was so loud I couldn't get to sleep. When I approached the reception I was told i should have reported it much earlier so he could have taken action. Really?
The noise ended at 2305 but I was so annoyed it took ages for me to get back to sleep. I was up first thing and was knackered all that working day.
I had to stay a dreaded second night because by the time i juggled work with finding alternative accommodation, check out time was too late. Again, more noise from the entertainment but not as loud as my neighbours who, to be fair, weren't being excessively noisy. I could hear their conversation word for word. The walls are paper thin.
And then there are little gripes that add up: one sugar sachet, soiled towel, sink with something in it that wasn't spat there by me, tatty/dirty wine list in the lounge.
For a Hilton I expect a certain standard. A friend in the area later questioned why I stayed there, it's rubbish - which says something.
On the plus side, it's well located, has parking facilities, over courteous staff, and bar entertainment!
I would say better suited to the tourist on holiday rather than business use.
