4 star hotel???

Definitely not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel let alone a Hilton! Disappointment from the moment we got to the check-in desk. Check in is at 3, arrived around 345 and they informed us they had no rooms clean and ready. We finally got our room at 4 pm. Rooms are very small and noisy....you can hear someone sneezing from 4 rooms down. Also, showers don't keep temperature and their tvs lose the signal off and on while watching. I would never stay at this location ever again, even if it was free!

Good value and location

This is a lovely historic hotel. The room was spacious and attractive. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and the shower was really just a trickle of water. It was perfectly suited for our one night stay while we attended an event at the nearby Staples Center, but I wouldn't stay longer because the bed and shower would make it unpleasant. Also, you can hear everything outside your door and from the next room.

Buisness Trip Disappontment

This hotel is lovely and the customer service is excellent, however paying extra for internet service on top of an already high room charge was a bit disappointing. Even more disappointing was finding out that this hotel does not offer any option for watching movies. The TV experience is limited to a few local channels and a few Direct TV channels - not even the entire Direct TV line-up! In fact, I would say it was the worst TV line up I have seen in a hotel and I travel for business every month. The fact that I paid top dollar and had to pay daily for internet access and couldn't even watch a move was a bummer. I would not likely stay here again.

it is a nice hotel, but it doesn't have a multi-language service. That's the only thing it bothers my family.

Pleasant stay at a great hotel

Located in the financial district, this place was very nice. Friendly, attentive staff. Small but clean, well-kept and inviting rooms with comfortable beds. I would stay here again.

Good for business and pleasure

I and my wife stayed here for 2 nights. I was at a conference and my wife explored the city. Location is great -- there are plenty restaurants not far away and it is close to subway. Hotel is clean, well-maintained, and has an old look charm. Staff is friendly and helpful.

One Night Stay

It was amazing! Super clean and comfortable. The staff was always ready to assist. The only problem was that the keys to the rooms stopped working once but thats about the only problem.

Dooped

This hotel seemed to look very nice from the pictures, offer a prime location and the Hilton name. The hotel wasn't bad, I mean it was clean, comfy bed, but nothing extraordinary for almost $200 a night. I get it, its downtown, but I would have rather paid more for something exciting and extraordinary. Or perhaps pay less for something outside of dowtown.
