I got an upgrade to a room with an interesting design. It was large and comfortable with a step up to a seating area with a desk. The step up meant that the large window was above eye level which was just as well as it mainly pointed at the building next door. The bathroom was very nice. The staff were all helpful and friendly. I arrived very early in the morning, and they sent me off to breakfast while they got my room ready. I liked the breakfast and the breakfast seating. I made good use of the small but well-equipped fitness room. I never saw anybody else in there.
With Hilton Gold, you get a free breakfast. I was not able to learn that in advance so I paid for the first morning's breakfast since it was Christmas Day. I tried to get a refund for that meal but was not successful. (I did not try very hard since they'd served me free breakfast upon arrival.) I found a gift of wine and sweets on the first night and then again on the second night because of the holiday. I also had free wifi in my room which I really appreciated.
My only real gripe was the elevator that made a loud grinding noise as it passed each floor. I appreciate that it was holiday time, but it seems like such a high end hotel could manage to get it fixed anyway. The noise was fairly loud in my room which was some distance from the elevator, so I felt sorry for those in closer rooms. (I reported the problem when it first started, so I know they knew about it.) Other than that, the room was very quiet.
