I have never booked a hotel through a third party vendor in the past, but I did this time. It was an app that will book THE DAY only of your stay...nothing ahead of time. So I grabbed the room for a good price instead of doing my usual peck and hunt on tripadvisor for the best bang for my buck. I knew it was a Hilton so I figured I couldn't go wrong.
After booking 3 nights and leaving for this hotel in about 2 hours I read Tripadvisor and by some of these reviews I thought I'd be walking into the hotel from The Shining. Please said there was blood on walls, no air etc etc.
So I wrote Luis the manager (he replies to many posts on here). He assured me my room would be very clean. WHen I arrived I was so happy that my room was just perfect. He even gave me an allergy free room. All hallways had air, my room was clean and the air was great. Housekeeping did their job well. The doors bang a bit and that does add noise, but it wasn't something I was upset about.
I wasn't there for any theme parks; just to see friends.
What I loved: I'm a Chicago native that has lived in Naples, FL for 14 years. There is an Uno's Pizza right on the resort property! But, I'm more of a Giordano's lover, so we had that delivered (like 5 minutes away)!!! I haven't had a Giordano's stuffed in years. It was amazing!!!!
But honestly, this hotel is not horrible. The staff is nice, the place is clean and it's great for families. The pool and pool bar was nice as well.
Please remember that this is the LESS EXPENSIVE chain of Hilton hotels. It's not a top of the line Hilton...it's a Doubletree. It's like there are Marriott's, then less expensive versions. So I'm not sure why some people were so angry with their stay???
I recommend staying here for any reason.
