The staff at the Windsor suites are amazing!! The care, concern and attention they give to their guests is outstanding!! From the lobby assistant; Treviare, housekeeping; Ivy & supervisor Josh, up to management; the wonderful Ms Stephanie I must say there wasn’t a staff member that we encountered that wasn’t pleasant, friendly, accommodating and welcoming

My husband and I have stayed here every year for the past seven years and they have never disappointed us We love this placeWhen you’re in Philadelphia or already live in Philadelphia, and need an excellent hotel to stay at, trust me the Windsor Suites would be an excellent choiceKeep up the great work you guys!!

Brandon Caudill

The Windsor Suites was the perfect place for a last minute stay in Philadelphia We especially appreciated the pet-friendly policy and easy parking Our room was affordable, spacious, had a great view (see picture) and even came with a small, fully functional kitchen

We made use of the small fridge, wine glasses and bottle opener, but I imagine this would also be a great room for a longer stay The location is perfect and we were able to walk to any museum, restaurant or coffee shop we wanted to visit We had no issues with the temperature of the room, but the weather is also very mild this time of year Also, the pool and rooftop deck were closed for renovations This wasn’t a big deal for us, but it would have been nice to have a heads up about this before booking

Javi P

Staff and location are great Parking is reasonable for downtown However pictures are not what we had in room

Pics on website are much nicer! Also, you cannot control AC/heat in the room Depending on the season, either the AC or Heat is on You personalize cannot control the temp Only option you have is to turn it off, open window or ask for a fan Also Pool and Deck are closed during season but not mentioned on website There was also someone personal shampoo bottles left in the shower when we checked inCall before booking to see what is open, etc

We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed by a warm, helpful, professional associate (Michael) He put us in a great corner room, with a cool river view Throughout our 3-day stay, we were impressed by the friendliness of staff (from front desk staff to housekeepers), who went out of their way to greet us with a smile

The location is unique (in a good way!); use of the old Ironworks as a concept was fun Most importantly, our room was clean and quiet Will stay here again!

Y B

Nice, clean, and kind staff!We had a very nice experience The staff was friendly and accommodating The rooms are suite style with a small kitchen

The couch pulls out to a full size bed if needed The decor is fresh and modernGreat experience all around! Would happily recommend!PS – Only odd thing was that the keys stop working automatically at 10 even though regular checkout is at 11 They keys are required for all doors and elevators

Andy 4A

Very modern and clean Staff very professional They had all the amenities, excellent fitness center

The suites are perfectly stocked and clean- will definitely stay here any time I visit the area The 2 trips of nearly 20 days were excellent at this property I would recommend the Marriott property above all the Hilton properties I stayed at over the last 2 years

Brittany Swope

Wow! Where to start?! This hotel is absolutely stunning We cannot express enough how wonderful their staff is as well They went above and beyond to correct a minor inconvenience and were extremely helpful with returning an item back to me that was left at the hotel

The pool, bar, spa, rooms, atmosphere, etc are just top notch You couldn’t ask for more My husband and I enjoyed every second of our stay and we are looking forward to getting back to the Four Seasons soon Again, the staff is just fantastic and we highly recommend this beautiful hotel 11/10!

Thu-Nga Ortega, DDS, MAGD

Wow, this hotel is amazing and customer service is top notch! There’s always a service person in the hallway almost anytime you open your door to provide you with anything you may need in your room They also have ice service to your room which is a plus There is bed turndown service as well

The bathroom has the best shower with strong pressure! The closet is like a changing area which is nicely separated front the bedroom area Everything is super plush here only suggestion is that they provide better toilet paper in the rooms Considering how upscale this hotel is, this is definitely a must

Taylor Weese

Posting on behalf of a friend who was too shy to do so – the hotel itself and service is lovely and exceed expectations The elevators, or should I say elevator, needs to be assessed and addressed How can such a luxurious hotel think the current system works? The amount of people and floors and what are labeled “smart” elevators create an unnecessary wait for a simple trip

Desperately needs improvement If they’re going to have two for the whole hotel, at least make sure they both work all the time! Otherwise fantastic

My wife and I have stayed at an AKA 5 or 6 times, the last 3 being at this location at University City in Philly We’ve obviously enjoyed our stays because we keep coming back This review is specifically about the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff

Kudos to local management This high quality staff doesn’t just happen It’s hiring the best people and training them to make their guests feel welcome 5 stars for staff on 28, at desk and management!

Grace G.

The stay was wonderful The kids enjoyed the pool and movie room, and I enjoyed the view/cleanliness of our suite EJ was AMAZING! He constantly checked on us and made sure we had a great stay

He prepared the movie room, brought snacks and water, brought towels to the pool, answered all questions I mean he went above and beyond, the customer service was great Overall a great stay!

Daiana Lucisano

We have stayed in room 3524 for 10 days and there were some problems, but the staff took care of everything with kindness and professionalism I am grateful to the general manager Sharon Bell, the sales manager Carla Caboni and the chief engineer Robert: they took care of all the problems and offered to make up for them Now we moved to an apartment in AKA and everything is fine and perfectly furnished thanks to the helpful staff that works here

Rooms and apartments are beautiful and have a stunning view over Philly’s skyline I highly recommend this place- Mizio & Daiana

We came here for a convention It was conveniently located just across the street from the convention centerThe staff was friendly but the valet parking crew weren’t very efficient and we waited in line for about a half hour and parking is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!The front desk was helpful and efficient

The room was clean a d the AC worked but couldn’t be adjusted below 70 degreesTheir service was great and when we left out the do not disturb sign they would call to check if we wanted maid servicesWe stayed 5 days and were comfortable 😌It is situated right in down town and was convenient for walking to about anywhere we wanted to goWe feel like we can recommend this place

Mark Heck

Very nice hotel Staff was Very Friendly and helpful Valets, Doormen, Bell Hops, Desk clerks, Housekeeping always cheerful and greeting you asking if you need help

(Adria greeted us at the front door when we arrived and started helping us from the get She even insisted on grabbing our bags from the trunk)Waiters at the restaurant in the Lobby were awesome (especially Altin and Edward)I wish I could remember all their names of the rest of the staff to put in a good word for all of themAs far as the hotel itself: Clean, and nice with good viewsCentrally located in the city Next to the Reading Terminal Market(Best eats in town) Convenient to the subway walking distance to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Walking distance to City Hall and Convention Center,

Alison Chaplin

I stayed here for a two- day work retreat The only positive was that the people who worked here were really nice and accommodating Parking was a nightmare, even for those who arrived early

The food was hit or miss– either there were a number of really tasty options, or everything was gross, depending on the meal My room was ok, but there was hair everywhere that could not have been mine and I couldn’t make the room cool enough to be comfortable Overall, it seemed like they couldn’t professionally handle the amount of people we had there

The historic buildings, the enchanted garden, the decor, your bags that mysteriously vanish the moment you walk in and appear in your room, the exquisite art, bed linens and gorgeously appointed baths… a stay to remember! Can’t wait to book a private dinner party in the chef’s kitchen… my only frustration is we can’t leave with the furnishings! Meeting Victoria is just the cherry on top A gem of a boutique hotel in the heart of Center City!

SC Galassini

Actually, this was our second visit Our first was during our daughter’s wedding weekend and we loved the Dwight D, but didn’t get to appreciate all it had to offer So my husband and I visited again the weekend before St

Patricks day Vittoria and Ken remembered us and were so welcoming Our room was beautiful But what makes this so wonderful is the care Vittoria and Ken put into making everyone feel comfortable and welcome Thanks again and will return again

Brian Driscoll

To be honest I haven’t stayed here yet But I wanted to give my experience so far I booked and they called me to verify some information which was great of them

Saved me a disaster Then I ran into life issues after my cancelation time frame and they assisted me in rebooking So far I haven’t stepped foot in the hotel, however the customer service has been above and beyond any customer service I have ever dealt with Can’t wait to stay I’ll post a follow up after

An overall fair experienceTo start, I had reserved a king room a few weeks ago On arrival at 5:30pm, was informed that no kings were available

We were given the option of taking an immediately available double queen or waiting for the king We had a concert to get to in less than two hours so we opted for the double queenThe room was at least very quiet, but it really looked pretty worn See the pics below for the quite worn desk chair, rusty hardware on the furniture and what I can only assume was a missing shower caddy? on the shower wall leaving a residue of adhesive Felt more like a two star motel rather than a 3 star hotel roomThe lobby area was quite nice however, and they serve cookies at night in the lobby, which is a “sweet” touch The hotel is also within walking distance of a Target and several chain restaurants which was convenientOverall, relatively affordable but I probably would not stay again unless I had a worse experience at a nearby hotel

Jason Mount

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay This web site will compare countless booking websites and normally will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This place is one of the most well known in the area

I have been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely won’t regret itBeautiful hotel, well kept, clean, excellent service, great location for what I went for will definitely stay again if I ever visit Philadelphia again Employees very attentive and friendly

J

ROOM: I was extremely happy with the room accommodations I got a 2x queen bed room Lots of lighting, desk / counter space, and closet space

Mini fridge actually got coldSERVICE: There was no room service unfortunately the weekend i stayed There was one housekeeping staff that was extremely rude and attempted to literally walk through me near the elevators as i rounded a corner It was a moment of a game of “chicken” The service staff in the lobby at the reception and at the breakfast were excellentLOCATION: very safe, with frequent night patrols by hotel security, which i appreciated The hotel is tucked away in an area with nice grass and trees Only minor downside is that it is not in center city itselfOVERALL: would return

The staff is professional, excellent, friendly, and patient All of them would bend over backwards to give us what we needed no matter how trivial The rooms are clean and unique; not cookie-cutter, chain hotel rooms

The entire hotel is unique and has a welcoming atmosphere We stayed here twice on our trip, and all the staff from the owner to the room service remembered us and treated us warmly The hotel is tucked in a quiet street making it easy for ride services to pick and drop off customers We will be staying here every time we visit Philadelphia

Ben Stone

Stayed here for a night over the weekend Wow! I wish I had found this place sooner The room was very clean and you could tell it had been freshly remodeled

I stayed in the Henri which was on the top floor on the right side of the building It was very quiet and was a welcome relief from the noise of the city at night The AC took a bit to cool down the room after we checked in, but was eventually able to get it to a comfortable temperature The bed was a bit stiff for my taste, but not so stiff as to lessen my quality of sleep The continental breakfast in the morning was simple, but tasty and was enough for us to eat quickly before checkout If you want a more substantial breakfast, there are plenty of options within walking distance Bottom line if you’re looking for a quiet getaway in walking distance of all Central City has to offer, I definitely recommend staying here!

Yasir Alani

The stay here at the this hotel was spectacular The staff were so kind and accommodating!The manager Douglas and receptionist Elijah was very very helpful and went out of their way to make my stay pleasantThe manager Douglas bought me a new laptop mouse because he noticed I broke mine by accident

Really appreciate the thoughtfulness – very kind of himThe room and location is best Will definitely come back

Very comfortable stay We didn’t use the kitchen but thought it was well-designed and would definitely be good as an option The location of the hotel was great for restaurants and fun

We took advantage of this and got to try out many good places around over the quick weekend getaway Breakfast in the morning was sufficient with yogurt, cereal, pastries, coffee and tea Our room was brand new with beautiful view of the city I loved the large bathroom, standard for Element hotels I also loved that they put more design elements into the room – comfortable bed, nice furniture, floor to ceiling windows Glad to see a “different” Element (in a good way) I didn’t get upgraded with my status Still a good option for staying in Philadelphia!

Corey R

***Great location Great customer service Clean rooms with great views

*** Our room had a full kitchen and 2 queen beds It was perfect for our family It doesn’t have an on site restaurant HOWEVER it is literally walking distance from a million restaurants Next door at the W hotel, there are a couple of nice lounges to enjoy if you’re into the night life vibe The ONLY downfall is the only parking option the hotel has is valet for $60/day BUT if you’re not planning on going in and out with your vehicle and just walking the city that’s not a big deal They also have a nice gym and rent out bicycles too We will be staying here again

c wilson

I debated based off of the reviews However upon arrival from check in to check out everything was amazing! Thank you to Kevin and Nature for taking good care of us for breakfast!! Thank you Natalie for accommodating my request Our location and room was awesome! I love that they had purify drinking water in the room, that was amazing

I am very picky and everything went well from the valet parking to the rooms Valet parking is $60 per day We didn’t have any problems By the way they have a very nice gym and laundry room to wash your clothes if need be for $200 I will stay here again when we go to Philly again

The rooms are average and could use a little TLC However, the location is amazing and central to all the great touristy sites of Philly Even better than the location, is the service

Outstanding and much better than higher rated hotels I’ve stayed We came in extremely early from a red flight; they found us a room We needed to check out late because of late flight; they allowed us to stay late Excellent service without making it seem like a big deal

Adam Schechner

Pros:-Location can’t be beat A few minutes from Reading Terminal, across the street from city hall-Kitchen in the rooms

-Breakfast buffet is included and more than adequate-Mattress is nice and firm-Staff is very polite and responsiveCons:-Valet is expensive (though we knew this), but when they say it takes 30-45 minutes to get your car, they mean it-Lobby has apparently been under construction for months-Rooms are very dated and need some major renovation-Water in the sink did not get very hot-No safe in the room-AC struggles to keep the room cool, even when it’s in the 50’s outside-Center City noise Not at all the hotel’s fault, but something to consider when choosing a hotelOverall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, but there are definitely some improvements that should be made

Why Doihavetodothis

This was a perfect location for the convention center Right near reading terminal market for food Walk a couple blocks and you’re at a park, or a mall, or surrounded by food

Hot buffet breakfast, only downside is it’s the same thing every morningStaff was amazing Especially Mark at the front desk He was incredibly helpful each time we saw him Breakfast room crew always friendly and refreshing the hot foodsWater pressure in room was a low in the sinks and I wouldn’t recommend driving Philly water, we bought gallon jugs from the 711 around the corner

Melanie Love

Traveling outside one’s familiar settings is always a bit daunting, and emphatically needing a comfortable stay for multiple nights tends to put a high price on available offerings This Holiday Inn came recommended to me, and I’m so glad that it was – the rooms are wonderfully well-furnished, and luxuriously cozy It really felt as much like “home away from home” as a hotel could, with everything from climate control, carpeting, lights, shower and bathroom, and of course the bedding feeling Just Right

The in-house restaurant serves unexpectedly great food, and the staff are very friendly and professional All this, for a price that I think is pretty reasonable, and one I wouldn’t mind paying again A convenient location, in a quiet neighborhood, close to any possible stores, restaurants, or highways – if you’re looking to stay in Drexel Hill, for purposes whether local or generally nearby (eg Philadelphia), I think this Holiday Inn is a great value for your money

Lee Roberts

Hotel is off the beaten path Not many other people in hotel during my stay Indoor pool has salt water and has been broken for months waiting for a part

First room had clogged drains and area under bathroom sink had not been swept Here is the bright part Staff is incredible and switched my room right away Building is only 3 years old so amenities are modern Restaurant & bar on premises I would stay here again

Kim Glasford

We came to town for a baby shower in Clifton Heights Holiday Inn has always been one of my go to hotels plus I’m IHG rewards members The staff was friendly as usual

The room was clean and smell good The only think I had an issue with is the shower water pressure which seem to always be low at all Holiday Inn The bathroom toiletries was Dove productsThe Streetlight bar and restaurant is very nice had breakfast there before heading The buffet is $1699 per person I love there set up with the hotel

Prasad Patel

Nice hotel with affordable rates and great service The pool is somewhat of a nice perk in the city The lobby has a nice steakhouse and very lively bar

However, the bathrooms appear dated The valet folks are nice but take forever to get your car They don’t even let you call down for your car—so be ready to wait 45-60 min The only reason we would stay here again is because of the great hotel staff!

Didn’t get to enjoy the pool since it was closed for the season (stayed in October), that would’ve made my visit! The room was nice, we had a corner, so we had a little view down the road instead of just an airshaft Bustling hotel, seemed like a lot of folks were visiting to enjoy a sporting event, but I was present for a wedding Like others have said, the valet was indeed very slow

I’m glad I didn’t need my vehicle except for at checkout Lots of the amenities had been suspended due to COVID, so I’m not sure I really got the full hotel experienceand I could’ve done with a larger bathroom for sure It got really humid in the room after showering All in all, I think I enjoyed it mostly because I had a wonderful companion and was there to celebrate something special The post-wedding brunch catered by the hotel was good I was given gluten free pancakes by special request!

Room service was lack luster The shower temperature wasn’t consistent, even if you didn’t touch the knob it could do from warm to scolding hot in just a few seconds Furthermore the pool had so much chlorine I almost threw up when I inhaled too much

The bed was fine but the pillow were to firm and my neck was so soreIt was in a good location, and the front desk person was incredibly nice and accommodatingUnder normal pricing this would be a 3/5 but the price is way to high for the less than adequate convenience and comfort Would not recommend compared too other hotels

Only stayed here for one night And checked in towards the evening When we pulled up to the hotel the lady working at the valet was extremely helpful and friendly

Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about the lady at the reception that checked us in She didn’t seem to be friendly and had an unwelcoming attitudeThe rooms were big in size and were nicely decorated The rooms didn’t have complimentary water nor body lotion We felt there was a lack of attention to details as the beds were not thoroughly fixed The hotel does need a bit of TLC as there were signs of aging The thermostat was also coming off the wall The view wasn’t too great but it didn’t matter as we stayed only for a nightThe cleaning needs to improve as there was a used coffee pod in the machine Especially given the covid situation, we felt more attention to cleaning should be a priorityThe restaurant/bar area was tastefully done and had a nice vibe to it The hotel had a small snack shop and a balcony area in the lobby The rooftop is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so we didn’t get a chance to experience itAnthony at the bar was friendly and helpful But we felt as if the bar wasn’t fully equipped as the Moscow mule we ordered wasn’t served in a copper mug However, we enjoyed the service and friendliness of Anthony The food was averageThe hotel doesn’t have a parking area and the valet parking fee was higher than what we paid for in NYC so we parked the car ourselves There is a parking garage right in front of the hotelThe hotel is in a good location Overall the experience was average

We have stayed at other Cambria hotels and are Choice Hotel members as we have experienced a high level of service during every stay The Cambria Downtown Philadelphia stay was no different as to the level of service and care we received and have come to expect from the Cambria brand From the Valet service to the Front Desk Staff and even the maid service everyone was friendly and helpful

The room was clean, roomy and modern with hardwood floors and a beautiful city view I was in town for a concert with my daughter and the location cannot be beat As two women we felt safe even late at night and the building was extremely safe We were hesitant based on the reviews we’ve seen but I can say with certainty our stay was nothing like anything mentioned and we will absolutely be staying again when traveling to Philadelphia Thank you so much!!!

Excellent Hotel Very modern, comfortable, clean and it’s located in a great area Only part I was not a fan of is that I wasn’t made aware that parking was an additional cost but no big deal

Also Sherry, the front desk associate was great! Very professional, courteous, patient and helpful She gets a 10/10 in customer service, she definitely made our stay more enjoyable! Despite the hotel management leaving her completely alone at the front desk on a busy Sunday when everyone is checking out, she managed to stay composed and handled everyone’s check out process like a boss! Cambria thanks for the great hospitality but let’s get Sherry some help at the front desk! Will definitely return on my next trip to Philly

What started out disappointing turned out to be a decent stay I booked our room for my cousins wedding months before I worked directly with an agent to understand the sleeping arrangements

It was booked is a queen suite so we could be in the building with the other wedding guests but would have 2 queen beds and a couch bed When we arrived they said our room wasn’t ready less than an hour before the wedding and they down graded us because they over sold the wedding rate After being a Marriott rewards member since the program first started I was disgusted and very irate I asked for the on-site manager When they reviewed my book and saw how many months out I booked they immediately put me back into the room I had booked and it was amazingly it was ready The room was lovely but the service was terrible They helped me and screwed the people who checked in right before me, also wedding quests and the family after us too Later that night a family came down for bedding for their pull out couch and the hotel gave them 1 sheet, 1 blanket and one pillow and told them that was the last pillow they hadAll I can say is that the hotel was clean and quiet and attached to the venue so that was worth it I can tell you I would only recommend this hotel if you had to attend an event at the Springfield Country club Definitely not a relaxing vacation spot

This place is huge Very clean very neat and very organized The entrance has a super big axcent wall soon as u enter with a great appealing view

We were at the hotel for a wedding It was a festive occasion for us and we were looking forward to a great stay at Marriott hotel But there were many surprises in the wings

1) The rooms do not have lockers to store your valuables They have bank-type lockers at the check-in counter which are very inconvenient when you have to carry your valuables, including jewelry from your room to the front desk Also very risky for losing some of the stuff2) When I called in to deliver a pillow to my room, the front desk clerk refused as he was alone on duty and was not allowed to leave the desk So if you need anything after 10PM, you have to go down to front desk3) They did not have foam pillows The front desk people did not even know what foam pillow looks/feels like The bed was very soft The room was small with not much light in the room The switches are located at inconvenient places There is no microwave in the room You can use the microwave located near front desk But just like locker situation, this is inconvenient as well4) My Marriott App mentioned that I had free breakfast But the front desk said that it is wrong and they will contact Marriott to update their system I did not push for getting free breakfast after see the other issues I mentioned above5) At times there were long lines to front desk since they only had 1 or 2 clerks working there6) There was still construction going on in the hotel, but we did not hear lot of noiseNow the good part1) The staff was friendly and tried to help as much as they could2) It is located on a very nice golf course So all the golf lovers this is the place to stay if you are in Springfield, PAWe had pleasant time due to all the festivities, but the stay could have been much better

1st I’m a Diamond member, my room was upgraded to a suite This was my 1st time at this location The room was a king bed suite

It was amazing! Full sitting area and kitchen with a spacious bathroom Due to staffing shortages, you have to request house keeping when you check in I had a issue with the shower head but the service was quick to fix the issue Most of the staff were friendly However the bar staff could use some training on how to talk to people and how not to be passive when something needs to be addressed like patrons bringing in outside food and ordering a drink and then being asked to leave for the outside food Finally, I was here for a conference The meeting rooms were great as were the support staff who were prompt and make sure everything was in order The location has homeless people at the bottom of the stairs that lead to the subway on the Locust street side I would use caution when exploring, especially as night falls

Mike Dallas

The hotel is nice but for the price I would expect more The 4 elevators were simply not enough to handle the traffic so there was a lot of waiting and overcrowding Thankfully most people wore masks inside the hotel

I paid extra for city views but unless I was tricked into thinking that this means my room would be facing towards the center, I did not get one Breakfast was good but it should have been included in the price The hotel overall is nice and clean and very conveniently located

S. Salim

The rooms are spacious, and clean The common spaces are clean and the location is convenient Unfortunately we encountered staffing and communication issues with staff

First of all I was struggling to get my things out of my car and the valets were standing around talking to each other instead of offering to help After i did the heavy lifting they offered to help I asked the front desk for a dolly and instead of calling a bellman they told me to go ask the valet myself You have to schedule room cleaning and even though we did schedule it and then asked multiple times when our room wasn’t clean, housekeeping never came Housekeeping was actually outside our room and we asked them to clean again and they said we had to leave while they cleaned We left and mentioned it to the front desk and they said the cleaning crew was still working When we returned many hours later our room was still not clean We called the front desk and they said the cleaning crew had left They sent someone up with towels who was actually the same cleaning person who said they were getting to our room earlier in the day! Some staff was very helpful although there was definitely an attitude problem at a few standard guest requests I’ve noticed a big change in the quality of Hilton hotels and in a very negative way If you care at all about getting what you’re promised and accountability then don’t stay here

We have loved our stay! The entire staff has been incredibly friendly, attentive and made us truly feel like a valued guest The design of the hotel is beautiful and slick There are so many smart and stylish details in the rooms as well as the lobby spaces and bar

The gym is fantastic, love the selection and choices…even a plyo box Hats off to the team as a hotel design is one thing but it is the customer service that really makes a stay memorable Thank you

My sister and I stayed at Canopy this past weekend and it was the best experience ever! I rarely leave reviews, but I felt like I had to give this place a shout out Not only is the hotel gorgeous, but the staff is amazing! From the moment we pulled up the valet parking staff was very welcoming and accommodating Our check-in experience was great and the restaurant/bar staff were awesome as well

Every time we walked past someone that worked in the hotel they asked how our stay was going and if we needed anything We will definitely return!

Staff was very nice I had a corner room The windows crack a little bit and I love that but they need screens on the windows

Bugs could fly in the room Also I took a hot shower the water was extremely hot and I love it My only issue is that the smoke detector went off from my steam They need to fix that because that’s just to sensitive The smoke detector sits right outside the bathroom door Other then that I enjoyed my stay

Melanie Marban

Hotel location was prime for where we needed to be The front desk and valet service was wonderful It was snowing so our cars were cleaned off well

We ate dinner in the restaurant which was great and well seasoned The drinks were strong! Only reason I won’t give 5 stars is because the rooms need to be updated The wallpaper is peeling and the ceiling had paint chips/cracks

Roger Goun

Hotel was clean and employees were friendly Valet parking was unavailable when I arrived at 9:00 PM and I had to park quite a distance away (No one told me that Hilton has a lot nearby and it wasn’t obvious in the dark

)At 11:00 AM one morning I sent a text requesting that more soap be put in my bathroom I received a text acknowledgement from an employee 8:00 PM still no soap Had to go to the front desk for some Does Hilton consider this adequate guest service? I don’t
