Two stays - very different

Review of Hilton Adelaide
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Mar 2006
The hotel is about a ten minute cab ride from the airport and shouldn’t cost more than about A$14. The hotel is in a great location, close to both the CBD and restaurant row.

The hotel has large public areas that are very impressive with a selection bars and restaurants. The front desk staff are very knowledgeable about the area and very efficient. For good restaurants leave the hotel by the main entrance turn right and right again – you will be spoiled for choice.

There is a gym on the second floor and a small outdoor pool and sun deck. When we there, February, the pool was in the shade by 3PM. Also beware the tiles around the pool are VERY slippery when wet!

We had two very different experiences at this property. Our first visit we were upgraded to the Executive Floor with access to the Executive Club. The room was a good size, recently decorated and refitted with very expensive looking furniture. The bathroom was large with a walk in shower – beware when you switch the shower on it won’t come up out of the shower head you can see, there is a rain shower built into the ceiling. We had booked the Indulgence Package – probably not worth the additional cost unless you have a car as the package does include free parking.

The Executive Club on the 16th floor is quite small for a property of this size and when we there was managed by a very officious young lady who ignored everybody apart from the obvious business types. Lounge closes around 8:30PM, much earlier than other lounges I have visited. Breakfast, served in the lounge had a good selection of hot and cold food and was well serviced.

On our second visit we were not upgraded due to the fact that the hotel was very busy. Our room could not have been more different from our previous stay – the furniture was cheap and badly used and the carpet and general décor were threadbare. The room was very noisy and the antiquated aircon didn’t work. I would not chose the Adelaide Hilton if I had only seen this room – definitely not representative of the Hilton Brand.
