Nice place to stay for a few days. Clean, and beautiful hotel. No many options to eat. Check the time of the restaurants inside of the hotel because no everything is open at the same time. Overall, pleasant stay.

Great hotel like all Hilton properties that we have stayed in the past. We did not like the fact that if you do not call the front desk they do not clean your room.
