The Hilton opened only a few weeks ago and is doing a pretty steady business, but I wonder how long the enthusiasm will last? This is, after all, Vancouver. For now, however, everything looks great and sparkling. The lobby is really nice and decorated modernly (lots of black, granite, stainless steel). The hotel restaurant is very good but the menu is exceptionally limited.
The Hilton is a hybrid between luxury and business. It doesn't really fit in any other category. I imagine most travelers will be of the business variety, since I can't fathom families vacationing in Vancouver. The rooms are nice; amenities include flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Beds are luxe. Parking is $5/day and there is ample meeting space. Rooms are $130 and up.
