Great location for Summerfest/fesitvals

The Hilton is right on the bus route for Summerfest and other festivals on the lakefront. The bar in the hotel is a great amenity as well.

Old hotel showing it's age.

Peeling woodwork, window that would't close completely, burn mark in curtain, air conditioning not effective, Sunday Brunch items were not at a proper temperature, just not a very well maintained property.

Don't eat here, don't stay here. Too many other places to stay at or dine at instead of getting duped because of the brand name associated with this hotel.

Wonderful one night stay

Hotel was beautiful, staff was very attentive to our needs. Tons of parking for a price charged right to your room. Only thing that's was wrong with our stay was the temperature of our room it was incredibly HOT tried adjusting thermostat did not work. The Millertime pub had a great atmosphere, also the cafe for breakfast was delicious could have a larger selection for the price we paid. We will be booking with the hilton again in June .

Great,except...

The only complaint I have with this hotel, is that the room was not the same as the picture. We stayed in a junior suite, and the one in the picture shows a fridge & microwave. There were none in the room. Everything else was as described.

Wonderful stay......

The room was a little small but that was okay because we did not spend much time there. The location to 3rd ward and old world 3rd st was excellent. Would not think twice aboout staying there again with all the good stuff close by.

Bedbugs

First off there wasn't a fridge in the room. At almost $200 a night that was shocking. When we lifted the sheet to go to bed there was an alive bedbug sitting there. Part of the staff was concerned but who I think was the room service manager acted as if we were disrupting him and showed no concern. The manager offered switch our rooms but we were too disgusted and we left.

Great for a conference !

This hotel is located right across the street from the convention center with connecting walkways to keep you out of the elements. My only issue with the hotel is the split lobby. We were dropped of at the main entrance on the east side of the building and had to go up a level fro the registration desk. My only issue with the room was the small bathroom...each time I opened the bathroom door it struck the shower curtain rod and made a load thud! I enjoyed the Miller Time Pub. In all, a great place to stay if you have business at the convention center.
