I recently had the pleasure of retuning to the Hilton at Short Hills after having been travelling frequently on business. I have stayed here many times and I’m happy to say that as this world gets more hectic by the second, that such a place exists.
I have sought the Hilton out as a refuge from the frenetic pace of life, have entertained clients there, and have gone out of my way to recommend others seek this destination out.
One would expect a generic cookie-cutter Hotel Chain experience, but not here. As a 4-diamond Hotel, it seems they are constantly trying to take things up a notch. They certainly did with me.
For starters, I was greeted warmly and professionally by Richie at the Front Desk, who was extremely accommodative and friendly, helping me out of a difficult situation. I remember when he had just started there and it is so nice to see him burgeon into an even more professional, attentive persona. I felt back at home immediately and was able to rest after a tiring journey.
It didn’t stop there. As I entered the Concierge Level Towers Lounge, I was greeted warmly by a gal who has been there for years, and enjoyed a pleasant early breakfast in a civilized, relaxed setting.
My return visits to the Lounge during the day were a pleasant pitstop and capped off by a delightful evening presentation with another tremendous gal, Odeth, who has had tenure there as well. To complement this, the newer gals, Esther and Laura were absolute Sunshine.
The new restaurant was also an enjoyable experience as I was greeted for brunch by Ellen, who I’d met before. She was very friendly and accommodating to my needs and even helped us by the Outdoor Pool.
Everyone that helped me couldn’t be nicer, from Liz and Meghan at the Front Desk to gals on the Guest Service Hotline like Andrememe and She. Another great stay, many more to come I’m quite hopeful.
If your plans take you anywhere near, I recommend the Hilton at Short Hills.
