The hotel was sold out two nights that we were there, called down for extra pillows which never arrived. Was woken up by other people fighting in room either next to me or over me. Strong pot smell that same evening. Love Hilton, just not this property

Had a nice stay, clean and staff was friendly. However that was tarnished when I was charged a second time for the same stayon the card I used for incidentals. Here we are 4 days later and 2 different reasons why it happened and still no resolution because I have to contact the general manager who is always off wor not in when I call. Not a good look Hilton.

Everything was ok, except for the fact that our room smelled strongly of cigarettes, weed and cologne to cover it up when we requested a smoke free room.
