I have stayed at this hotel many times. It was always one of the best, but now it appears to have gone into a decline. The staff wasn't courteous, and my room wasn't 100% clean as it normally has been. I was disappointed. I will likely stay at the new Hilton down the street again in the future.

Just OK

Very noisy at night. Sounds like a frat party much of the night. Bed was very very soft. Prefer something much firmer. Will probably find another place next time we are in town.
