We made the ridiculous mistake of taking the Amtrak Coast Starlight from Los Angeles to Seattle with our 13 month-old son. Long story short: The train was terrible, our son caught a stomach virus on the first day and we spent 30+ hours with him violently ill, trapped on this train from hell which was already 12 hours delayed when it got close to Eugene, Oregon. So we got off early in Eugene to escape from that nightmare. And a block away from the train station was the Hilton. I swear, the Hilton could have been on fire, hosting a conference for murderers and they could have charged $10,000.00 a night for a room with a bed of nails and we would have still be thrilled to stay after that horrible train experience.
But, of course, the Hilton was great. The room was spacious, clean and very inexpensive. Aside from hearing the trains go by every few hours (ironic and painful), we loved our stay and needed it to recover from our experience. The hotel staff was amazing and helpful and kind, they had a free shuttle to the Eugene airport where I rented a car and after a one-night stay we drove the rest of the way to Seattle ourselves, refreshed after a good night's sleep. It sounds silly to say, but we'll forever remember the Hilton Eugene as our rescue from that awful train.
