I stayed at the Anatole for a conference in June. The hotel is fantastic. All of the public spaces are well maintained and full of art. The moving sculpture is worth watching for 15 to 30 minutes. I enjoyed walking around the hotel just to enjoy the space.
The rooms in the tower are very nice. My room had a fantastic bathroom and shower. The bed was great, air worked well and was quiet, view was very nice, and adequate closet space. My only complaint in the room was the lack of overhead lighting- which was not that big of a deal.
I had dinner in the hotel one night and drinks every night. Service at the media bar was lack luster. We got the wrong drinks on two occasions and it took a long time to get service. Like most hotels, the prices are astronomical. if you do eat at the hotel, get the pork sandwich. it is great.
I also spent several afternoons at the pool. The pool seems small for such a big hotel, but it was never overrun with people. Service at the pool was great. The bartender Tamrin (sp?) was so nice. We worked together to create a new drink- a frozen watermelon mojito. It was terrible but a memorable experience. It was an instant friend at the pool bar and I appreciate it.
The executive lounge was nice but the service and breakfast were somewhat lacking. I anticipated the standard Hilton breakfast of ham, cheese, and capers. Instead it was cereal and stale bagels. The milk and oj were too warm. it's like the ice wasn't cold.
The location of the hotel isn't close to much of anything other than a few other hotels. My biggest complaint is the $17/day for parking especially since the Hilton Garden Inn across the street does not charge for parking. Seems like you're being gouged on the parking.
