Question Hilton or Caribe Royale?

Trying to decide which hotel to stay at. We want to do DTD the day we check into one of these hotels. We like the convenience of the Hilton but the Caribe Royale looks so nice and is cheaper using the Mousesavers rate. Does anyone know if the Caribe Royale charges for parking and also if the shuttle is complimentary to DTD. They mention evening shuttle to DTD and was wondering what hours they consider "evening". I would love to hear from those of you who have stayed at these two hotels and get some idea which one to stay at. Thanks in advance.

Went ahead and booked the Caribe Royale since it was only $99/night. I'm a little disappointed though, the brochure they e-mailed me is not showing the same guest rooms as what I saw on their website. The rooms look outdated, no flat screen tvs., etc. Perhaps the brochure is outdated? Anyone know? Also, I was told that parking at DTD is free. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks

Just stayed at Caribe Royale in February rooms have been renovated and are very nice with plasma tvs. Parking was free. Very nice hotel especially for $99 you got a great deal!
