The HIlton here in Bogotá simply doesn't cut it. You get a comfortable room, but nothing fits the luxurious experience the hotel's name sets you up to have. There is a very nice heated pool and a great gym, but besides that everything is just mediocre.
My biggest qualms with the hotel were the AWFUL room service (the pizza was disgusting, the french fries as well) and the WiFi charge. The explanation we were given was that marketing research points out that peer hotels charge for WiFi. It is beyond me how this logically leads to the Hilton also charging for internet, specifically because I would expect a hotel to want to outdo its competitors, not conform to their services. Anyways, that is pretty false, considering that I stayed at other locations that were not only more comfortable than the Hilton but also had better service and food with free WiFi for a better price.
I also felt that the prices for the generic minibar were astronomical. I expect to pay more in a hotel, but out of principle I refrain from paying the equivalent of almost ten dollars for a bottle of water.
