Like most people, I think of the Hilton brand as a sure fire place of excellence and a twist on special. Not this time. The overall experience was bland and features looked pared down which showed in the breakfast range, the decor and the layout of the standard rooms. Now the standard rooms are clean and of good size but the appearance is basic but functional. And pay more if you want style. The downer for experience in the standard roons is the location of the TVs on the side of the room with the beds facing straight ahead. Even with swivel tvs (which these are not), it is awkward and a pain if you like to relax watching tv/ movies on a hotel stay. The staff and service was efficient and helpful. I did not use the gym/ swimming pool but it is well equipped. So I would say check the place before using it for a special event or just go to the Marriot which has a much nicer customer experience in the public areas/ restuarant. Or try the Hilton Gatwick Airport (but not if you need to be in Leicester).
