Best room at Doubletree...

Hello,

Traveling to Key West tomorrow and staying at the doubletree. Whats the best room/floor/view to ask for at check in? I'm a Diamond Hilton member so they should accomodate.

Thanks!!

We had a room overlooking the pool a few years ago (my mom is Diamond as well), and it was nice, especially more than the room overlooking the parking lot that we had earlier this year :)

If you're Hilton Diamond you've stayed enough at their properties to know that upgrades aren't guaranteed. Good luck, but don't assume you'll automatically get a suite or large balcony, their options are limited based on what's already taken and reserved.

Rooms with a pool view balcony are best - I've been upgraded to the one with the 9' balcony which is really nice.

Junior Suites are very nice. We have been upgraded 3 of the 4 times we stayed there. If not available, get a regular room with a balcony facing the pool. If not, you will be looking out over a parking lot.

Some people will tip the check in person, and they say it helps in getting a better room assignment. I have never tried this, but it may be worthwhile. Depending on the hotels occupancy rate your diamond level status may not help with room assignments (if people have paid more $$ for the better rooms and they are sold out of the better rooms).

Tipping the front desk person would defeat the purpose of having status with Hilton.
