The staff were nice and friendly. Especially the folks handling breakfast. The floor I was on was not very clean. The room was very musty smelling. Overall, it was just ok.

For a Hilton I had higher expectations of the Hotel. This hotel is old and in desperate need of a major facelift. The Ac unit in our room didn’t fit the window properly- the seal was gone and we could see outside through the gap from the ac. There was green mold on the windows and was extremely humid inside the room. Grateful I booked one night only. Won’t return to this one.
