Never any unwanted surprises. Hilton properties always deliver. Unlike other chains where cleanliness and quality may differ from location to location, Hilton properties are reliable. That's why I always stay with Hilton.

Stayed at the hotel during a business travel. Overall impression: The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Took advantage of the complimentary morning breakfast and the complimentary reception in the afternoon. Rooms are clean and quiet, excellent for a business or leisure trip.
