8.2.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Hilton city center

    Main room was very clean. No info in the room as to where icemachines/vending machines were located. No water in room.Dated and small bathroom could stand a do over. I was having a restless night and noticed the mattress kept sliding off the box spring somewhat. Parking ramp was very unreliable using the room key to access it-almost wouldn’t let me out until it was overridden. The bright spot was its close access to Turner Ballroom. Based on the price I would choose a more modern hotel next time.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Overpriced and out-dated

    This hotel is really not worth the money. I've stayed here several times over the years and it seems to be getting worse and worse. The rooms need to be updated, both in furniture and accessibility. The bathrooms are gross. On this particular trip, I could not exit the parking garage because of a card error and they still charged me full price to park there. What they charge for a night and what you get are way off balance. Stay somewhere else

    Did not enjoy the stay!

    It's an older hotel, so modern amenities I didn't expect. But the shower barely worked. Condensation dripped from the ceiling, after each shower. Bathroom was very small. No lighting in the hallway, or the closet. I would NOT EVER stay there again!

    Nice place, couple of negatives.

    The $28 a day parking was a bit much in my opinion. The hotel room was very nice, but the bathroom was a too small. It was literally a shoebox. Hotel had great amenities, on-site bar, beer garden, Starbucks. I enjoyed my stay, but the negatives I mentioned might keep me from returning.

    The hotel staff was very friendly. The King room was big but the bathroom was small. There is a Pub and starbucks onsite. The Hotel was very centralized and near restaurants. The riverwalk is a 10 min walk from the hotel..

    Hotel looked amazing, it’s very close to a lot of things. Even tho the parking in the garage was $28 it was worth it.

    Not so good.

    Small room, everything in the room looks old and dim. Expected more for a 4 star hotel.
