    The setting and hotel were beautiful. The staff was great, location great and the amenities. Real positive experience. The view from our room was spectacular.

    Good

    The proximity to shopping and dining...did not have to get in my car to get to those places. The room layout. It appeared clean.

    There was a ticking noise coming from some type of vent on the wall. In addition, the air made a loud noise when it would run. Having a room directly over the dumpster and large air units didn't help either. In hind sight, I should have asked the front desk if the ticking noise could be stopped. Also, the tub had rust around the drain area. Not a good look for Hilton.

    I loved the view of the lake it was so beautiful and the boardwalk was nice. The room was extremely spacious and the staff were really polite.

    The bed were uncomfortable the bedding was off white and my friend was in discomfort from the constant itching. Plus the sink was clogged and took 30 minutes to drain.

    Room and staff

    We were there for Journey who were playing 10 min away.. Ended up being late for it because we had to wait to go up in the elevators for 30 min. We had luggage, so we couldn't use the stairs. Then after getting ready, came out to find that the AC had broken in the hallway. Waited at the elevators again. None of them ever came, so we walked down the stairs from the fourth floor. It wouldn't have been so bad had it not been 90 out and about 100 in the stairwell. Sweating, I went to the front desk to complain and was told the elevators and the AC and were being worked on. Someone else that worked there told me this is just the way it is there. The elevators get overloaded with so many people going to concerts, that they end up using the stairwells, which heat up the hall ways. If that wasn't enough, we got back from the concert on which was on a Saturday to find the hotel bar closed. Very strange. Got to meet Journeys tour manager in the process though. He was really annoyed that the bar was closed too!

    Staff was excellent

    The room was able to be cooled to any desirable temperature. HOWEVER every other part of the hotel was terribly hot and uncomfortable. As if there was no A/C of any kind other than in the rooms

    Superb

    The rooms were so clean! We had no worries when it came to what we were sleeping on.

    I didn't care for the parking, it was nearly impossible at all times to find a spot to park. I didn't like the fact that all of my belongings were moved while we were away. Most of my bags/clothes were on the opposite side of the room. The view from our room wasn't good at all. But we were only there to sleep anyway!
