Stayed in: March 2016
Normally when staying for somewhere for more than just a stopover, I’d go for a city hotel. However on this occasion as I’d be arriving at 11:30pm, I didn’t much fancy making the journey into town at that time.
As it turned out, the hotel offered free transportation into town anyway, so worked out well. Upon checking in my HHonours Gold status was confirmed and I was upgraded to a room on the executive floor.
Standard room really. Like most airport Hiltons, it was a litte rough around the edges but clean and tidy enough. There was a decent sized work desk. And a TV with a whole load of Arabic channels on, but two English channels – both news channels.
The bathroom included a bath/shower combo and the usual furniture.
Usual Hilton amenities in the bathroom, as well as the tea/coffee making facilities. Also of note were the two bottles of complimentary water ready and waiting in the room. During 2015 I’d have a 50/50 hit rate with this, but its been such more consistent lately.
Pretty small lounge here, that didn’t open until 11:30 so no use for breakfast. I popped by for a couple of drinks on my return from town, but didn’t bother with any of the evening snacks.
One of two Hilton Group hotels at FCO, although I chose this one due to the fact it offered a free hourly shuttle into town, plus the fact it was within walking distance from the terminals – the other involved catching a shuttle. It was good enough, but could do with a lick of paint. Also of note was that despite the stay posing on my HHonours account, no points came with it.
