The hotel, formerly a Hilton, has seen better days. It looks like it hasn't been renovated since the 70's and the outside windows haven't been washed ... in a while, making the view of Caracas a bit blurry. On the plus side of the ledger, my room on the "Executive" floor was reasonably clean. There was a safe deposit box which did not work and wi-fi which worked somewhat - meaning slow.
The elevators were a bit concerning - one person from our group was caught in an elevator which kept going up and down as if possessed by demons, for several minutes, until it stopped and let the victim out. Not fun.
Generally speaking maintenance does not seem a priority at this hotel, neither is service at the several restaurants upon the property. There are many waiters milling around, but not much service going on. On a positive note, the food was OK and I didn't catch diarrhea which is an accomplishment in this part of the world. There is an outdoor pool which looks nice which I haven't tried, and a nightclub of sorts where a bunch of people were sitting around looking bored looking at their cell phones. Maybe things pick up as the night progresses.
Overall, if the price is right and you are not too picky then why not.
