“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Room was exceptional with a beautiful view. I stayed in an executive suite and was impressed with the lounge, reception and breakfast venues. The staff was very attentive, pleasant and helpful. Great location for sightseeing, shopping and dining!

Vey nice hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. The parking fee is a bit steep but to be expected in a large city. Within walking distance to several attractions and places of interest. Room service meal was very good.

Thank you for staying with us, Richard C, and for the high marks. As part of a recent Hilton green initiative, we no longer deliver newspaper copies to guests' doors. Rather, you can find copies of both the Wall Street Journal and USA Today at our concierge desk in the lobby and in the Balcony during breakfast. Thank you for your loyalty, and please visit again soon.

The room was comfortable and the location can't be beat. The bedding was very comfy and the view was good. The shower did have a bit of funk on the grip bar. The pool was a bit small and cold, but the roof top setting is nice. Strangely, the maid showed up to clean my room at 8:30 am on the day I was supposed to check out, even though check out isn't until noon.

Thank you, Marcia N, for such a great review of your recent stay. Our housekeeping staff will attempt to clean rooms that do not have a Do Not Disturb sign hanging from the front of the door, even before check out time. We look forward to having you stay with us again soon.

Pool area was HOT and uncomfortable. There is a nice deck off the pool. The bar and waitstaff were very friendly. There were "items" in our room when checked in. Housekeeping needs to do a better job.

We had requested a quiet room away from ice machines, elevators, etc. I do not see how any rooms are quiet. The floor air conditioner unit was very noisy! We had a connecting room on each side. (one can hear next room through doors) Our room was a very small room with a small window. Be sure to ask for a room not ending in ..22. They are the tiny ones. The bathroom looked newly renovated except the ceiling..cracked and had mold. The hair dryer filter was filthy. The staff was friendly, just the
accommodations were unsatisfactory.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The concierge was very helpful with directions. We didn't splurge for the upgraded suites so the rooms/hallways showed their age, but everything was clean. The staff was friendly. There was no free wifi, no complimentary breakfast of any kind and no on site laundry machine (unless you paid more for a suite) so it's unlikely we'd stay again.

happygolucky993,
Full-service hotels such as ours generally don't offer complimentary breakfast, instead offering breakfast in an on-site restaurant as we do on The Balcony. Thank you for staying with us, and safe travels!
