          Great Trip! Great staff, great location. Great breakfast with good selection of protein. Clean rooms with lots of extra room than a normal room with a king bed. Super nice exercise room for working out and very friendly staff.

          There are several comments about the rooms needing to be updated. The Hilton website says that the guest rooms are newly renovated. Have all of the rooms been recently renovated?

          The renovation in some of the rooms was so minimal it needs to be done again.
