As a Hilton Honors member we love staying at Hilton hotels. I made a reservation at the hotel booking one of their King corner unit rooms to ensure we would have a great room with a great view. When making the reservation I specifically let the hotel know that we would be celebrating our anniversary even going as far as to ask if there was anything that could be done to make our anniversary just that much more special. Also when making the reservation I requested a room on a high floor- this is also noted on our Hilton Honor's membership.
Before arriving no one called to inquire about our anniversary. When we checked in the front desk noted it was our anniversary so I figured it would be acknowledged. Wrong. The hotel placed us in a room on the 8th floor- out of 30. So much for a high floor. What was worse was our room was directly over the Dole shipyard where the Dole ship docks and then hundreds of trucks line up to have a crane drop a giant metal container on the truck. This provided for a less than desirable view and a noisy wake up Sunday morning. Ultimately no one acknowledged our anniversary- in fact no one even came for turn down service- a standard at any hotel of this caliber.
While the hotel itself is beautiful and in a wonderful location the service was disappointing. We wont be returning to this hotel to celebrate our anniversary next year.
