I am puzzled by reviews that rate this Hilton as one of the best. I found it to be mediocre.
The pros:(1) we were upgraded to a king suite - nice and comfortable, (2) the location - as others have described a short walk to many shops, restaurants and tourist sites, (3) John the concierge - the best aspect of the hotel. John was terrifically helpful and provided some perfect restaurant recommendations and reservations for us.
The cons: (1) no executive lounge - my first experience with a business Hilton that did not have a lounge, (2) poor selection of breakfast and even worse coffee - swamp water I suspect tastes similar, (3) with one or two exceptions (other than super John) the staff were disinterested and unfriendly - again a very unusual experience at a Hilton.
Tip: if you are staying there make your restaurant reservations through John - not only are his recommendations terrific, but the restaurant treats you as a vip with complementary appy or dessert when John makes the call.
