The Hilton, Indy -What a dump! A review of Hilton Indianapolis
First time we tried Hotwire - where you give them a star rating and they choose the hotel and you get the best rate. I guess we should have chosen a 5* instead of a 4*. The Hilton Hotel, Indianapolis was a real disappointment. First of all it needs a lot of $$ sunk into it to bring it out of the 70's and into the new millenium. 2 out of 4 elevators were out of order, so they shuffled people to the service elevators, where once you waited for 15 minutes, you shared it with the room service staff and maids with carts of dirty laundry!! There were pieces of the hallway that were falling apart and there was a smell of mold in the room. The room was alright. It was clean, but the bathrooms could have been cleaner. The area where the pool was was actually airconditioned and the pool was maybe 72 degrees!! We stayed 2 nights because they were paid for in advance, but then moved over to the Westin.
That is a first class property all the way around. Of course you pay more, but the experience was worth the difference.
