We stayed at the Hilton even though we live in Jeddah as a change to the routine. All sea view rooms were sold out so they gave us a room which was on the 1st floor and the view consisted of 5% sea and 95% roof top!
The room was larger than I remember it was when I stayed last time in 2007. Bed is very comfortable, loads of channels on TV, cosy couch and chair with foot rest, and a spacious bathroom filled with standard amenities.
The staff were very quick and answered any request we needed for the room in good time. But the nice touch that really screamed "Hilton!" is that we had some special dietery food for my wife which needed heating. They took the food and instead of bringing it back in its boring plastic boxes, they brought in full china wear with all the utensils and even a bread basket. Now this is what a 5 star hotel is all about.
Best thing about this hotel is its lobby, one of the most spacious and elegant. waterfalls and artificial rivers surround you everywhere. Too bad this is not utilized with a nice seating area or lounge to enjoy the sound and view. All cafes and restaurants are tucked away because of the strict rulings of Saudi Arabia for family sections. So after wanting to have a late coffee, me and my wife decided to go back to our rooms, disappointed.
The breakfast buffet was something to write home about, with selections of English, Arabic, and American choices. We had a nice table which overlooked their gorgeous outdoor pool.
This hotel is worth the stay only if you don;t mind paying extra because it doesnt come cheap. But for me. the Rosewood is still my top hotel in Jeddah.
