The Hilton will not accept cash or check payments in person. If you are only able to pay with check, you will need to mail the check in advance early enough that it can be received and processed before you arrive to the hotel. Although the hotel is cashless, we recommend that attendees bring cash with them if they would like to tip the valet staff when picking up their car.
