Took the family with me while I ran another 1/2 marathon.
When we checked in the guy at the desk acknowledged my Hilton Honnors level but did not mention any sort of upgrade.
On the elevator ride up to the top floor my wife asked, I said NO its full here for the race.
I was wrong, we got to our very large room with a partial view of the harbor, basically room was not directly facing the harbor, but first room off front of hotel so we had excellent views of port and up the coastline
Room was very large with fold out bed, it was not the best room , but it certainly was a notch or 2 up from what I reserved.
Later in day saw desk clerk, thanked him for upgrade (it makes wife happy), his response was "it so full , we had to do something..."
Rest of visit was nice and comfortable, but not extraordinary.
Except for fellow runners the average age of guests was 75+
Used the very small but functional pool all weekend, never saw anyone else in it - I do not explore the small workout room since 13.1 miles was enough exercise for the weekend for me, when wife suggested we go for a walk to get some exercise I reminded her running 20 miles that weekend was enough for me!
Breakfast was good, nothing special but was included in room rate and tasy enough to go twice.
All hotel staff were most pleasant, especially Valet's
We will be back
