This was a little lower quality than your typical Doubletree, I suspect to some extent it's probably not the busiest property in the Hilton portfolio. As a result, there is wifi Internet only in the Lobby, and wired in the rooms (MacBook Air owners beware!!), which for those of us working on tablets/smartphones etc, is a big issue; I never thought to ask, because it's been such a long time since I encountered a Hilton property with no WiFi in the rooms.
Otherwise this was a reasonable property, in a decent and clean state of repair, my only other critique would be about the breakfast buffet, which wasn't available due to the low number of guests at the property on this particular night, but there was no allowance taken for Gold members (breakfast included with the membership) unless the point was raised and pushed with the waitress, less vigilant may have found themselves with an extra breakfast charge on their room, despite the buffet being "inclusive".
In conclusion: WiFi access is needed in the guest rooms this is essential these days, to be treated as a useful property for connected business people on the road. If you're gonna change the breakfast setup, you should let everyone know the rules ahead of time or be prepared to make allowances; you can't move the goalposts half way through the game!
