Instead of staying with the crew at a host hotel during my last trip, I tried to earn some extra points with Hilton. Sadly, this was not a good experience for me.
The hotel is located in the medical district downtown and may have been attached to a medical facility of some kind. Location is good but parking- not so much. The first impression was the garage, where I assume, doctors and staff park; sheerly based on the makes and models of the 12 cars in total that occupied the entire first 3 "Reserved" floors.
The room wasn't anything to write home about. Bed was comfy but curtains were affixed to the track, so I couldn't close heavy ones when undressing (had to bring everything inside the bathroom), and couldn't open the sheers when I woke up.
Room service stops at 11pm on a Saturday and I was kind of hoping for it to run a bit later than that, so I ordered breakfast for the next morning instead.
They forgot to include the main part of the dish. Of course, I realized afterwards and the eggs weren't cooked all the way through so I couldn't eat those entirely either.
When I went down to the desk to request an updated bill, I mentioned that I didn't recieve what I ordered and the concierge didn't apologize or ackowledge my comment, printed a bill including the breakfast and asked me to turn in my key.
Next thing you know I am backing up in a parking garage with a line of two other cars because he forgot to mention I needed that to raise the gate.
Oy! Not impressed! Hope you have a better expeience than I did!
