I don't think I can help here. I have stayed at both, but my Ho-Jo visit was so long ago that my opinion is 10 years outdated.
At the time I remember freeway noise and hearing the ice machine. The room seemed old and dirty.
I've heard it's pretty nice now.
Of course, not Hilton-nice, but also not Hilton-price.
How much time do you usually spend in the room?
