    All the stars!

    This was our last stop on a trip from California to Illinois and it was everything my friend and I needed! Excellent service, wonderful bar/restaurant overlooking the city, pool and hot tub to soak weary bones, beds that were incredibly difficult to get out of, just the kind of vibe we were looking for!

    Charge for breakfast? That’s new

    Fine hotel, but charged for breakfast. Never been charged for breakfast at a Hilton in my life. Either a new policy due to covid to recoup some lost revenue or something done by this location but not others. Stayed at Hilton hundreds possibly thousands of nights for work. Gold member presently. Wouldn’t stay here again for that reason and will be switching brands if this is a theme at other Hilton’s

    Great overall; bad management of fire alarm

    Great accommodations, super clean and with many Covid precautions. Food was excellent (pricey but not overpriced). We had a fire alarm at 4:30am and people refused to leave the stairways because it was raining. No staff member was there to direct costumers and be sure they left the building. Manager in the morning was surprised and appreciated our feedback.
