          Great location for shopping and dining. Close to Iowa Cubs. Right on the river. Hotel is atrium style, beautiful inside. Staff was wonderful. Valet parking is easy. Breakfast has something for everyone. Evening reception had a great selection.

          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?
