Conference held there recently...very disappointed in this Hilton property that felt more like a Microtel or Red Roof....not that those don't do a good job, but for a better price and fewer expectations.
Check in was much delayed for some reason. Many people sitting in the lobby waiting for rooms was the first indication of understaffing.
When we arrived, there was coffee and a nice water carafe with lemon in the lobby. The water disappeared TOTALLY after that. We literally had to beg for water anywhere in the hotel!
The water fountains did not work and food service was not forthcoming with providing it for our meeting rooms. In fact, the food served was very ordinary and food service understaffed. With over 100 attendees, more than half were expected to eat outside under a tent. The only Breakfast food, of any kind was ONE choice of a buffet for $11. And again in the lobby that could seat only 40+ people.
On the positive side, the staff was friendly and the rooms clean. On the whole,
I would say this is NOT a good site for anything but small meetings or events.
