Great place. great staff”

room was ready on time. service was prompt. i felt very welcomed

We checked in, our room was ready right away. The location was a pain to find parking but I understood this wasnt originally a Hilton so no fault of theirs. I wish I knew about the 10 dollar valet that is mandatory when you say you drove there (who doesn't? ) but it was worth the price and I have never used valet before. That was nice

Nice clean hotel. Hidden costs....”

The hotel was nice and clean. Same for the room. The hotel itself was hard to find if your not familiar with the area. They only have valet parking which I was not aware of. The front desk was friendly and welcoming. The valet attendant not so much.

Personal travel”

No coffee makers in the room and no other chair but the desk chair. I had to pay to park in hotel parking lot valet only who did not put the car in park and was not parked fully in a numbered slot. Hotel front desk and Valet parking attendants did not seem to care. Coffee in the lobby which I needed to come from the 5th floor to get was not very good.

Stay away until construction is done!!!”

Hotel is under massive construction. There are no amenities available right now contrary to what the website says. Jackhammers were going all day Saturday and Sunday. The walls were shaking and it was so loud we couldn't be in the room. The staff were unsympathetic and offered no solutions to be unbearable noise and shaking.
