Trip to hotel started badly. The shuttle driver quoted thirty minutes, the second call made it over an hour wait; had to take a cab. Lobby is very old school dark woods and leather.
Check in was fine with a professional staff that was courteous and efficient. The elevators really needs attention very worn and aged. My room was large and well cleaned, carpet looked new but furniture was scratched, dented etc; time to upgrade. Bathroom was tiny I don't think my wife would be happy with space for her needs but it was sufficient for myself. No refrigerator or microwave available.
Business lunch catered by Hilton was very good. Varied choices and everything was well prepared and presented.
Leaving to return to the airport was just as bad as shuttle had to wait over an hour to return because of contracts with the airlines. Since the service was again unavailable I had another expensive cab ride.
This is neither the best or worse Hilton I have stayed at but I would look at alternatives at the price point they are getting.
