Doubletree Kuala Lumpur

September 7, 2015

The Doubletree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur was the first Doubletree Hotel in South East Asia as part of the Hilton group family of hotels. With it’s famous signature Doubletree cookies, this hotel is great, the location is near Ampang Park LRT subway train station, around 6 or so stops from KL Sentral station which takes […]

Conrad Centennial Hotel Singapore Swimming Pool

Conrad Centennial Singapore

September 7, 2015

One of the finest hotels in Singapore and one of my favorites when I travel with the Hilton brand – the Conrad whilst a better than average hotel in terms of build, what is outstanding in the service levels at this hotel – amazing. The executive lounge is great, however sometimes they don’t fully replenish […]

Hilton Istanbul Turkey Executive Lounge Floor

Hilton Istanbul, Turkey

September 7, 2015

One of the older Hilton properties, this one is located within walking distance to Taksim square. The hotel is historic in the era of American colonialism with capitalism as the basis, this property features a great turkish bath, sauna, steam room, gym and even tennis courts. Try to get the rooms facing the Bosporus – […]

Hilton San Francisco Union Square King Guest room

Hilton San Francisco Union Square

September 7, 2015

This hotel is more on the Tenderloin than Union Square. Beware the more aggressive panhandlers and smokers outside the main (north) entrance. Your mileage may vary, depending on time of day… I think the rooms in Tower 1 are the more updated and renovated rooms, and Tower 3 seems older. My room in tower 1 […]

Hilton Garden Inn Palo Alto King Guest room

Hilton Garden Inn Palo Alto

September 7, 2015

I recently traveled to the Palo Alto area for a waterpolo tournament and the team hotel was The Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel has a great location close to many shops and restaurants. The lobby is crisp and modern, don’t miss the complimentry cookies, and the staff are very friendly, professional, and accommodating. The rooms […]

Doubletree Hilton Newark Fremont Silicon Valley King Suite

Doubletree Fremont Newark Silicon Valley

September 7, 2015

30 minutes south of Oakland airport and a solid hour away from SFO. Newly updated and they did a nice job. The rooms don’t feel like a time travel back to the 70’s or 80’s. Be wary the hotel books lots of tour buses and sometimes those from the Pacific rim are dealing with their […]

Conrad Maldives Sunset Water Villa

Conrad Maldives

September 7, 2015

After traveling for nearly two days, I was really looking forward to getting to the Conrad Maldives Hotel on Rangali Island, which I had been able to book on pre-devaluation Hilton points and also one of my free weekend nights from the sign-up bonus on the Citi Hilton Reserve card. At the time I booked […]

Parmelia Hilton King Suite Perth Hotel

Parmelia Hilton Perth

September 7, 2015

Stayed at the Parmelia Hilton, Perth two weeks ago for 6 days at the end of May and hit lucky with the autumn weather – sunny and warm every day with cool evenings when the sun went down. Although the hotel is quite old, we were pleasantly surprised and thought it was in a good […]

Hilton London Olympia

Hilton London Olympia

September 7, 2015

I just completed a two night stay here in early June. I chose the hotel because it was inexpensive. Much less expensive than other hotels around London except for hotels at LHR. I sifted through HHonors, Marriott, Starwood, and Hyatt options. This hotel was by far the cheapest for being close (a relative term) to […]

Hilton Prague Old Town

Hilton Prague Old Town

September 7, 2015

My wife and I stayed in the Hilton Prague Old Town over the weekend and had a fabulous stay. We booked the internet EUR 119 rate (single beds lol) and were upgraded on arrival to a King Executive Room. Check-in was seamless–I noted our noon arrival on the instructions, and we ended up a little […]
