I recently stayed (in 11 March out 13 March). Booked direct through hotel web site and became a Hilton Honours member.

With their brand promise "to ensure we provide the special comforts and acts of kindness that make the traveler feel human again". As a traveller, I want a base (place to relax, rest and sleep) to be clean and functional for our basic needs. I believe they missed the mark of "personal comfort" and "feeling a bit special" when the...
