Decent hotel. Rooms were clean and front desk people were friendly. From a hotel standpoint there is really nothing to complain about. Everything you would expect from a Hilton. I would def. stay there again. The drive to downtown was not too bad. There is a nice outdoor/indoor shopping mall about 1.5 miles away. The neighborhood around the hotel seemed a bit shady but we didn't encounter any problems.
The restaurant in the hotel is a different story. This restaurant gets high reviews from other people but I am not sure why. Was greeted at the door by a friendly hostess for breakfast. She took me to a table and it was all downhill from there. Waited for what seemed a LONG time on a waiter/waitress and no one came. I flagged someone down and they got my server for me. I did the buffet and the food was typical for a hotel buffet, not great but not bad. Never got my drinks refilled and again had to find someone to help me. VERY poor service, but the kicker, The service for lunch the next day was a 1000 times worse. To make this quick, wasn't greeted in a timely manner. forgot to bring our drinks, only brought half our food and dropped off our check before we even got the rest of our food. Drink refills didn't happen. The bright point, the food was def. above average for a hotel restaurant.
Not sure I would eat in the hotel restaurant again.
