Positive Reviews

Generally, guests found staff members to be quick to assist, and thorough when it came to resolving problems. The welcoming attitudes they demonstrated helped guests feel at ease from the time they arrived.

Negative Reviews

Loud Voices in the Corridors

Guests sometimes mentioned being distracted by voices in the hallway because the design of the space seemed to make sounds carry more severely than normal. In some cases, it made it difficult for gets to get uninterrupted sleep. If you are concerned, think about packing a pair of earplugs to drown out any sound you notice.

Rooms Look Outdated and Shabby

This is a 1920s-era property so you shouldn't expect extremely modern décor. However, guests were frequently disappointed because they felt the rooms looked a little run down, rather than exhibiting welcome historical charm. Usually though, this wasn't seen as a major fault.

The Hotel Doesn't Match Brand Expectations

However, many guests commented that there were several things about this property that didn't match what they had come to expect from the Hilton brand. This sentiment often came from guests who admitted they had stayed in other Hilton properties around the world.
