I have one beef with hotel chains these days (okay, so I have more than ONE beef with them, but this is ONE OF my beefs)... as an elite VIP member of your loyalty program, DO NOT TRY TO UPSELL ME ON A ROOM WHEN I CHECK IN! If my loyalty is that important to you, then give it to me (especially when it is after 6-7 PM and you aren't going to sell that suite anyway).
As it turns out, the very nice girl at the front desk "gave" us the upgrade anyway after I somewhat grumbled at the fact that the HGI in Eugene was $38 more per night than the Hilton in downtown Portland. She gets an "A" for realizing when NOT to push it!
The property is a new, HGI with all that entails... good staff; clean, well appointed rooms; and good internet access. Have not tried the restaurant, but it appeared to be the standard fare for a good HGI (trust me, there are BADDDDDDD HGI's).
All-in-all, the price was rather obscene (but it is a college town and they are always higher for some reason)... but the staff and the room did not disappoint.
