Everything u need to know about Hilton(Burlington)
This hotel sucks!! I know that everyone has an opinion,.. and everyone’s personal experience is a little different,.. and you shouldn’t base your decision on any one person’s opinion or review, but if you want to avoid making the same mistake that I made (and I’m sure many other’s have), then read this and take note. I will do my best to simply give you the facts.
1) First off, ignore the rate’s that are posted on the internet. It’s all a lie! They say prices start at $169, when it’s more like $320 (with tax included). For some, the rates could be more or less.
When I walked in, the desk clerk slid a piece of torn paper across the desk (where he had written down $290), and whispered to me “this is tonight’s rate”. This was obviously so no one waiting behind me in line, could hear him. Why? Perhaps it’s because everyone at the hotel gets a different rate. This may be based on your age, sex, race, or even how your dressed. If your dressed nice, and look like you can afford more, then they can (and will) charge you more. Its all negotiable. Nothing is set in stone. If it was, then why wouldn’t the hotel just post the rates on a sign for everyone to see? I’m not sure how hotels get away with it (legally), but they do, and this hotel is no exception. The worse part is, the idiots that jack the rates up, often don’t even make a commission. They just do it to keep their bosses happy, so they can hold onto their $8 an hour jobs.
Hotels even have the power to place whoever they want, wherever they want, on any floor they want, in any room they want, just based on how a person may look.
2) If you want a view of Lake Champlain here, your going to have to pay extra for it. I did, however I was given a room on the 2nd floor, so unfortunately the only view I got was of a tree. If you really want a view, get something on one of the upper floors.
3) Don’t expect a free breakfast (even though it’s located in a State that is loaded with quaint bed and breakfast hotels, that will charge you half of what this hotel will).
4) Parking is NOT free. It’s $10 dollars. Unless of course, you are NOT a guest. Then you only have to pay $8 (for whatever sense that makes).
5) The hotel advertises high speed internet. This however, is also NOT free. It’s $12.95
6) The rooms have no fridge. They provide you with a bowl. You must fetch your own ice
7) Remember this. The money you spend here doesn’t buy class or hospitality. Actually, it doesn’t buy anything.. except for a bed.
I could also tell you that 8) the service was bad, 9) the rooms where dirty, & 10) small, but I’m sure opinions vary in those departments. I am simply trying to state the facts.
In my personal opinion, I found nothing good about this hotel. The best feature is its location, which is probably why they get away with charging so much. If you want a hotel downtown Burlington, you only have 2 choices. You have the Hilton, or the Marriott (which is next store). Both, ironically charge about the same rate.
Bottom line, if your a yuppie or some other idiot that enjoys spending 6 or 7 times the amount that something is worth, then your going to love this place! However, if you actually work for a living, and value your dollar, I strongly suggest looking elsewhere.
If your looking for a place to crash, and don’t want to overspend, and enjoy getting straight forward answers (with no hidden fees) try going just a mile or two outside of Burlington. On US-7, South Burlington, you can find decent hotels there for around $80 a night (and yes, even on weekends).
Lastly, don’t believe any hotel managers who say there looking into reported matters and will try to fix them. Nothing will change. Making money is there only real concern.

Worth the Price
The Radisson was a great place to hang my hat while I was in Burlington. Not only does it offer an incredible view of Lake Champlain, it is located right in the middle of, well, everything. You're a heartbeat from the waterfront, where you can hop on the path and run, bike or blade for mile after scenic mile. You're also a short walk to the Church Street Marketplace and the University of Vermont campus.
They were overbooked with a wedding party the weekend that I arrived, and they remedied the situation by putting me in a huge business-class corner room with an unforgettable view of both the lake and the town. Whoa!
Unique Quality: The view of Lake Champlain, especially at sunset, is amazing - be sure to ask for a room on the west side of the hotel.
Location, location, location - this hotel puts you within walking distance of the lakefront path, the ferries to New York and bustle of the Church Street Marketplace.
Directions: Burlington waterfront across from the park
This is everything you would expect from a chain hotel - annodyne, anonymous etc. But its one of the few (if not only) downtown hotel and is superbly located overlooking the lake only minutes from Church St . It is a conference hotel but offers an indoor pool.
Unique Quality: Anonymous it may be but to be in the centre of things is worthwhile (and they offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport). Most hotels in Burlington are to be found out of town on the approach roads, 2-3 miles out of the centre and surrounding by drive-in this and drive-in that.
Tip, if you can, try and get upper floor corner rooms. They are twice as big as the other rooms and even those that are officially 'city views' will have (because they are on the corner) some view of the lake.
Directions: Overlooking the lake
If You Like to be Close to Everything
This is a three diamont hotel. It has an indoor pool and whirlppool, plus an exercise facility.
Unique Quality: The only full service hotel overlooking beautiful Lake Champlain and the breathtaking Adirondack Mountains of New York. It's within walking distance of Burlington Town Center Mall and Church Street Marketplace. It's just across the street from Lake Champlain.
Directions: Right across from the lake and in front of Burlington Town Center
Nice to have a place with a View!
Of course the best part is that they "have a view". There is also a very nice restaurant and for the weekend evening we went to a comedy show that was opening that night.
Unique Quality: They have indoor pool, resaurant, and of course beautiful views .... need I say more about that?
Within walking distance to Burlington Square mall &Church Street Marketplace. Charming downtown area, breathtaking view of Lake Champlain. Lake Cruises 2 minutes away. Only guide pets allowed. Indoor parking for fee.
Walk along the shore of Lake Champlain- boat house is 2 minutes away. Summer and Winter activites.
