I was in the Derby area on business and so booked in at the Hilton East Midlands Airport. As this is a motorway Hilton, I really wasn't expecting much.
However, I was very surprised at the friendliness and helpfulness of the check in staff. Although I raised the still very thorny issue of having to pay an outrageous amount for WiFi at Hilton hotels, they handled this with good grace. I, of course, realise that it is the greediness of the Hilton senior management that drives this outrageous fleecing of guests.
The room (Queen Bed Deluxe Plus) was superb.
I had arrived by train, so decided to have room service. The Ribeye Steak was absolutely delicious!
Breakfast, the following morning, was also very good indeed. I will definitely stay here again.
But, Hilton, please sort out the WiFi issue...it is a real problem.
