We chose to stay here because we are Hilton Honors members and wanted to earn more points. Even without the points, we were very pleased with the hotel.
The hotel is VERY conveniently located -- right across the street from the McPherson Square station (blue & orange lines), 14th & I exit. It's also within walking distance of just about everything. Of course, some walks are longer than others. :-)
At different times of the day, there was always water, coffee and/or cookies available in the lobby. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We were a little disappointed that we weren't able to be upgraded as Gold members, but that wasn't the staff's fault. We didn't opt for the breakfast and chose points instead, so I can't comment on the breakfast, but it looked pretty standard. In our zeal to go out and see the sights, we also never visited the pool or fitness room, so I can't evaluate either. We had a street facing room (a room with a view according to the front desk) that was of decent size. I suppose it was a bit noisy, but it really did not bother us at all and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom had decent water pressure although the shower head seemed like it was a water saver. There was a nice sized safe in the closet, a microwave, refrigerator and a Keurig coffee maker. The only annoyance was the thermostat. If we set it at 70-71, we had cold air blowing out the unit. If we raised it to 72-73, the room became stifling hot. The best thing about the room was all the electrical outlets; two on the bedside lamp base, two on the desk lamp base, two on the wall behind the desk, one on the wall behind the chair, and two in the bathroom. There may have been more, but we didn't look since we already had more than we needed. After having stayed in hotels with inadequate number of outlets to charge phones, cameras, iPads, etc., this was greatly appreciated.
All in all, it's not a luxury hotel, but we would definitely recommend it and stay here again.
