Nice hotel but not worth it during renovations.
Stayed here August 19-21st and it was a construction nightmare. Vibe at the bottom pool is kinda killed with the construction. Elevator broke down last night/morning (10 flights of stairs after partying is amazing).

Need better mattress
We really loved everything about this hotel, except the beds. They were not that comfortable. For a Hilton establishment we expected a more comfortable mattress. The service was top notch & the decor was excellent.

Lack of privacy during my stay
I got walked in on by the cleaning lady before my check out time and I was having intimate time with my partner. This was a very uncomfortable experience and I’m very frustrated because it ruined our intimate time together and was also very embarrassing for her

Beautiful but not perfect
My friends and i booked two suites and loved that our rooms were next-door to each other. Views of the city was nice and suites were huge and clean. My complaints would be: you have a kitchen with no servingware, dish towels not even a roll of paper towels....we had to go to the bar to get wine glasses and a wine opener. The pullout bed in both suites were so bad you can feel the coils!! A high end hotel should be ashamed. We did enjoy the pool,restaurant and rooftop bar and the new wine bar.
