    Good time away from the city

    Very nice and comfortable room with a fireplace and semi-private balcony. Would have wished more restaurants were open but at least one was. Second night only issue were a couple of dogs in the room next door who kept barking. Obviously their owners were downstairs so they were left alone. Place didn’t seem so crowded so it didn’t make sense to put them next door to another occupied room if they knew pets were involved.

    Amazing One Night Stay

    Very nice hotel! Comfortable bed and as usual very comfy pillows like most other Hiltons. Dinner at Red Sage was awesome! Pricey but worth it. Jasmine checked us in and was so nice to give us a room upgrade since it was not busy! Only downside was the lack of restaurants because most were closed due to day of week, renovations or lack of staff. Overall, a great one night stay!

    Pool closed / nice hotel but far from plaza

    Check in was great. Hotel is beautiful but the only reason we chose to come this far from Santa Fe plaza was the casino and indoor pool. Indoor pool was under construction which was not stated anywhere online. Casino doesn’t have typical slots I am use to . Restaurant has a very limited menu and food was average at best. I would not come here again.

    Comfy

    Beds were super comfy, room was dark and quiet. Our only complaint was the indoor pool was closed and that was the only reason I booked this hotel. Kids got over it though, and we all slept really well!

    Good but could have been Hilton-better

    Comfortable stay but surprising how delapidated some of the furniture in the room was. Disappointing to see the lack of upkeep on exterior grounds, dead leaves that could have been swept up, scattered all over.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Check in was a disaster, we were told our room had been canceled. Hour later we finally got a room, handicap 😜. Next morning went to turn on shower, sprayer came off wall water all over the place, we had towels all over the floor into the hall, couldn’t wait to check out $200 down the drain!!

    Good quick stay

    A great stay mostly. The only issue really is they need more staff in the restaurants and bars, which I’m guessing isn’t their fault. The room was good all around. No complaints. Casino was clean. Non-smoking right now due to mask mandates. Can’t drink a beer on the casino floor which I thought was odd but maybe due to the mask mandate as well.

    Nice hotel no amenities

    The hotel was nice but they didn’t offer any of their amenities and when I called the front desk for a taxi they said they couldn’t call one for us.
