This is a nice upscale hotel. Everything clean, new, impressive. It just didn't move me. I stayed here on a Saturday night because I was attending an event at the hotel. I screwed myself because I had booked a room for $71 but canceled it for a room at the Hampton Inn down the street for the same price but a cheaper parking rate ($15/day - the Hilton is $24/day). Then I realized that I would have to drive to the Hilton and pay the $24 after paying the $15. By the time I went to rebook at the Hilton there were no more guest rooms available because of the event. Only executive rooms on the 10th floor were available for $114/night. So I tried to compare the two but the only difference I found was free breakfast that was only available M-F, cocktails and snacks which were available for an additional charge, and a bathrobe in the room. So I called the hotel to ask them what the difference was and they told me that the breakfast had been extended to weekends and I would get that.
Well on Sunday morning I was informed that because I had received the AAA discount I would not be eligible for the free breakfast. The bathrobe was some type of waffle fabric, not a nice thirsty terry fabric, too small and looked like it had been laundered many, many times. There was no microwave and I have NEVER seen a refrigerator that small . You were forced to buy snacks from the lounge because there were only sodas available on the floors, but the lounge closed at 11pm.
I am still trying to figure out what makes this executive floor different other than a higher price. This hotel has a nice lounge and lobby and I guess bars, etc. but no personality at all. Pets are welcome but with a $75 non-refundable pet fee. The internet is $12.95 per night in the guest rooms. I just knew that it would be included in the executive room--no chance! I guess executives can appreciate this but I will never be back.
