We stayed for three nights at the Hilton Strand. The staff gave us a quick check in, and we were given a room with a great view of the harbor. Since we're gold Hilton Hhonors members we were given breakfast every day. This was fantastic! The variety was excellent and we looked forward to a great start each day with their sumptuous breakfast. One side note...We are gold members of Hhonors; however, we were not given an upgrade to executive floor; hence, we could not take advantage of the executive lounge. We are given access to it at most Hilton locations in Europe, so we were surprised not to be given that upgrade. The room's carpet, as mentioned in previous reviews looks a little long in the tooth, a bit dated and worn. The air conditioning is loud, and it does not provide much cooling. We'd open the window, but we kept getting mosquitoes in the room. If they could turn the temp down a notch, that would have made our stay so much better. All in all, the location was perfect. We took the 615 bus from the airport and got off the Hakeimia (sp) stop and walked down the street and around the corner...about 4 minutes in all. To walk to Market square, it generally took about 15 minutes. We'd stay there again, but we hope they take care of the air conditioning issues and the worn out carpet in the rooms.
