We arrived to only notice scaffolds on the premises surrounding a large part of the building. Fine, they are upgrading. We entered the building which is contemporary and bright. We registered our arrival and specifically asked if any of the construction was in the vicinity of our room. the woman advised us that it was exterior and that if any work was to be done, they only do it shortly in the daytime hours. We specified that we were working and required a quiet area of the hotel for this and our children's purpose. She assured we had a good room. We went up the lift only to find our room was overlooking the hotel lobby. Big bright windows, that are your only source to cool the room, open to the lobby area. We settled in and went for lunch only to return and find drilling going on above us. Loud construction hammering, equipment for the whole duration of the day. Needless to say, not much work was done. We left for diner and returned to a quiet room. Bed was soft and worn in some areas, enough that your body slides in the opposing direction. The next morning, straight out of the shower, I opened up the room curtains in horror as I found a man directly in my sight of vision on scaffolds looking directly into the room. We gathered our things and left the hotel for the day. We checked out the next day, indicating to the person at the front about our experience however, they didn't seem to care one bit about how disruptive this 700$ room a night was. The Hilton is nearby, new and honors loyal clients. Chose wisely!
