We have stayed here a number of times and though it is expensive, you get what you pay for. At check-in, the staff member obviously didn't like the fact I'd booked through a third party. He said that tripadvisor takes commission and it is therefore more expensive. Not sure I believe him but he obviously didn't like the fact it had been booked elsewhere! He refused to give us a breakfast voucher which we have always had free before. The pool did not open at 6am as advertised and we had to find a cleaner to open the door for us. The water was lovely and warm and the hot-tub, very hot!
On arriving home I checked my Visa account and it showed 3 pending debits from the Hilton, 2 for the evening meal and 1 for $5.
I rang the Hilton and was told it was their procedure to do this and I should only be charged for the meal once and the other debits wouldn't go through - very strange!
We love this hotel, it was Easter weekend and all the other hotel car parks in Fargo were full but there was hardly anyone at this one. Perhaps the price puts people off, especially weekend shoppers from Canada. It has a children's area with Wii games, free snacks and drinks at weekends which is fantastic if you are travelling with a young family. The rooms are wonderful with comfortable beds, thermostatic heating, HBO tv, Keurig coffee maker, fridge and microwave.
We will definitely be returning when we can afford it. The only down-side was during our evening meal when a very drunk, loud Irishman started swearing whilst talking to another couple. Obviously he'd had too much to drink but disappeared when I asked him to tone his language down for the sake of our 10 year-old daughter.
