Great for getting to PNC!

The beds were awesome! Also, the location is great--close to PNC (formerly Verizon Wireless), and there is flat-rate transportation there ($40), which is convenient. The van was waiting for us when we exited the show. The only disappointment was the lack of Executive Breakfast on the weekend...

Ask for the flat-rate transportation when traveling to a concert. Only $40 and peace of mind!

My wife and I stayed one night on a date night getaway and it was a great experience. The staff upgraded us to an executive suite without even asking! A true blessing!

Beautiful hotel

My husband & I stayed at this Hilton last year for a night as part of my birthday present. The location was perfect for a concert we went to. We loved our beautiful room with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! They have the best breakfast Buffett you have ever ate!!! So we enjoyed all this hotel had to offer & did a repeat this year for my birthday !!!!!

Auto Fair Weekend

This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel and it won't be the last. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to shopping and dining. I wish we could have stayed there the whole weekend.
