I liked the desk and spaciousness of the rooms. The bedroom was much colder than the living room area. However, the bed was comfortable. It could use two remote controls, one for each television. The staff was great and very friendly. The hotel is attractive and guests seemed to be enjoying themselves. A pretty friendly, happy place.

I’m not one to complain and understand the staff might be having a bad day. First, our room door was open, I went to park the car and my wife and baby were sitting outside the room concerned somebody might be inside. 2nd-there was a giant chunk of hair on the bathroom floor right in front of the toilet. 3rd-the sink was full of grime in the bathroom as well. 4th-there was a coffee packet left in the coffee maker.5th-the fridge was super sticky and had the substance pouring out on the floor. We stayed in the Hilton downtown the night before and had a great experience, switched it up for our 2nd night and was supremely disappointed. We love Hilton though and will continue to stay with you guys, just expect better than that

Great location and ambiance Only complaint is the shower. Raised floor and the half permanent glass wall was a disaster. Water overspray from the shower went all over the floor. Stepping down from the shower onto the bathroom floor caused me to nearly fall due to the unexpected drop. Had to get the desk to have a pile of towels delivered to soak up the water mess on the bathroom floor. Strongly suggest the bathroom shower have a sliding door installed. Otherwise the hotel was fantastic..
