Very disappointed with the handling of an issue we encountered at Homewood Suites in Fort Myers Florida. My family had to change rooms during our stay and two of my purses were left in error. They ended up missing and even though the general manager and housekeeping manager confirmed that a housekeeper and an inspector had to survey the rooms before any guests are allowed they refused to believe that my purses were stolen. Claimed they asked the cleaning crew and they said they hadn't taken them. Wow!

If all we have to do to get to the truth is just ask nicely then we certainly are wasting money on a judicial system. The manager believed her staff so I was out of luck. We hadn't even checked out yet and our items were just taken. Will never stay here again and will make sure to tell any and everyone I can about this experience. They do not value their guests and their property. As long as they don't catch their employees in the act of stealing then there are no thefts. Corporate was no better.

Guest don't supervise their kids, running through hallways. Cleaning needs improving. I watch staff put dishes in dishwasher without detergent. Blood spots on bathroom floor never clean up. Outdated furniture.

Hilton is a reputation hotel. I have been a loyal customer and have always appreciated the excellent customer service you offer. It is ridiculous that the I booked the early saver superior room through Hilton.com on 25 Nov 2016, the price for one night stay on 30 April 2017 is USD 894 and after a month, the price reduced to USD685 and said it is another early saver promotion.

How can the early saver rate for my room (which is non–refundable, non changeable) be higher than HHonors non member, 2 points normal rate (fully refundable and changeable). I cannot believe I would be overcharged for such a huge amount (USD200 different) directly by Hilton. I sent email to Hilton, requested for price adjustment or other compensation. At first Hilton staff promised they will help me to follow up my case and send my request to management, but in the end I never get reply from them. I am very disappointed on their customer service!!! People who want to stay in Hilton. REMEMBER NOT TO book hotel early. You will not enjoy any privilege or discount because Hilton keep coming out new promotion and cheaper rate.

Hilton Hotels is a reputable hotel chain. Or so I thought. Five weeks ago, my Hilton room was robbed. When I got back to my room, every single valuable had been taken from my room. Surveillance video showed a thief walk in the front door, jimmy the lock, and walk out a few minutes later with a bag full of my computer, my wedding band (I was working out, so I hadn't taken much with me), my credit card, and everything else of value. So far, this is just a bad day. It happens. But the way Hilton responded added insult to injury. Like I said, this happened 5 full weeks ago. When I left the hotel that day, I was assured that things would be taken care of. They haven't been. Despite multiple emails and calls from me, I haven't heard a single thing from Hilton. Crickets.

Well, that's not 100% true. I did get a short impersonal email from Hilton's insurance agency saying that Hilton had decided they wouldn't be doing anything to help make this right. Absolutely nothing. Look, I understand if they don't want to claim legal liability for this. But I'm a longtime customer of Hilton. There was a time I thought very highly of the Hilton chain. But if this is how they treat their customers when a robbery happens on their watch, I'm going to think twice about ever going back. Especially if I'm traveling with any valuables.

I was booking a room in Omaha Nebraska at a Hilton hotel. I was transferred to a customer service rep that said I would get $100 off my stay at this hotel if I joined their honors program. Upon my booking in Omaha, I found out this was false information and that this particular hotel did not qualify for discount. I wrote customer service requesting my money back due to dishonest info and never received a courtesy call back or any correspondence. Because of this dishonest deception, I will never stay at another Hilton and will let all my friends and family know about this Hilton scam.

This is a scam. Hilton suckered me into believing that I could go to NYC for a 2 night 3-day vacation for the cost of hotel fees $297.00. Every time I spoke to an agent to book at room in NYC they couldn't accommodate the dates. I had until today, 12/14/2016 to book at room. I was giving this to my daughter and her fiance as an engagement gift. Not only could they not provide a hotel we wanted in Manhattan near Central Park... they then informed me that I had to go on the trip with them. They NEVER explained that this was a scam to join HILTON Vacations and you had to sit in a promotional speech for 90 minutes.

You have lost my business!! I will NEVER stay in a Hilton Hotel. Shame on you for stealing your loyal clients' money. I travel 1 - 2 weeks out of each month. I book all the hotel reservations for myself, my staff and my clients. This will not be the first letter I write. I will get to the CEO of Hiltons, Better Business Bureau and other powers that be to let them know what I think of your cheating scams. I just had to take my gift away from my daughter. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!

I am tired of receiving "spam" phone calls on my cell. I have pushed the section to remove me from the call list 3 times to no avail. Not only do I get spammed once a week, but the number called from is a cloned local T-Mobile number, so Hilton is trying to make me think it's a local number so I will answer it. If you have to trick people into talking to you, you have serious problems. STOP CALLING ME!!!

Don't ever stay at the Hilton Midtown NYC. We planned our family vacation 6-7 months ago to meet up in NYC for Thanksgiving. We called to make the reservation in June, doubled checked on Oct 3rd to verify everything was ok. I upgraded to a premium level paying much more, requested that our 2 rooms had to be joining as we have a child who is a diabetic and needs medical assistance at night sometimes. We requested, 1 king, and a room next to it with two double beds so my mom and 2 teenagers can sleep in there. "No problem" stated the young lady I spoke to.

I then called the day before we traveled Nov 22, spoke to reservations to make sure everything was set in stone. Nope! They had our 2 rooms on different floors! After 2 hours speaking with reservations and a hotel manager, she assured me everything would be okay. That she made notes and 99% chance it should be absolutely fine. I fly my mom from Texas to Florida, then Florida to NYC. We arrived at 8 pm, and we are informed not only do they not have the room type we requested, but that they don't have rooms together. The management says "you're lucky you can even stay here as we OVERSOLD!!!" Can you believe this? They're sending people to their other hotels in the city. Meanwhile this is on the parade route and that's why people booked in the first place paying $400 plus!

We settled into our rooms that were 4 doors away from each other. Not the type of rooms we paid for, super small along with smelly and super outdated with both only 1 king bed. I asked "where were my boys supposed to sleep?" I was promised 2 rollaways. We called and waited over 2 hours for rollaways, then we're informed THEY RAN OUT! My husband and I went down to speak to the management and they said they couldn't do anything about it. They'd have to sleep on the floor OR go to a different hotel and MAYBE they'd have a rollaway.

It's now 12:30 and I'm calling all over town to find a new hotel. We finally leave at 1 am and go to the W Hotel. We had to leave the rest of our family that stayed. Mind you they messed up their reservations too, but their child didn't have to sleep on the floor. They broke their contract with us...we are Hilton Honor members too, but I'll tell you honestly, THEY DON'T CARE.

I have been using Hilton for almost 20 years. This time when I checked in at Miami downtown it was great experience and also asked to provide HHonors nos. but the same was not handy at that time so I mentioned I will provide later on. I then stop by late night on my way back from dinner and asked night manager Mr. Amaurys ** to update the same. The answer which he gave me was not at all acceptable, he mentioned since I booked through third party cannot get points. This is for the first time I experience the same as in the past it's always been some agent who booked the hotel for me. Here I paid and also stayed so not understanding what's the criteria for declining.

I therefore asked him to show me the rule book but he couldn't justify the same and called up Hilton HHonors but they also didn't have any satisfying answers. He then printed out some paper showing benefits of Hilton HHonors. This was completely different than my request why I cannot get my points when I stayed and paid for my stay. He then started being rude. Extremely bad experience on Thanksgiving day. Thank you Hilton.

I booked a room at the Homewood Suites in Ft. Myers, Florida on Hilton's Website as I do almost weekly. I'm a District Manager and travel for a living. I use Hilton Hotels for ALL of my travel needs. I called Homewood Suites and was told that I am going to be charged $50 since I did not cancel 24 hours in advance. I didn't even book the hotel room 24 hours in advance and Hilton's Website states that it is changeable. So when they told me that they are only charging me $50 instead of the full rate I was still upset.

I'm a Hilton Hhonors Member since 2013 and have never had an issue, so I called Hilton Hhonor for a resolution and they just put me through to the hotel and washed their hands of my issue. Unless this is fully resolved I will no longer be doing my business with them. You would think that when spend this much money with a company you think that they would agree to their own terms and conditions on their website. Guess I was wrong. I'll be disputing the charges and will tell everyone I can about this. It's just not the right thing to do.

DO NOT USE THIS HOTEL CHAIN!!! They charge your credit card in advance and send an email confirmation stating NON-REFUNDABLE. The person taking the reservations does not tell you this when making the reservations. My credit card was charged $1600+ 3 weeks prior to my event. I only found this out when I needed to cancel one of the rooms. I spent over 45 minutes on the phone stating I was never informed of the pay in advance & non refundable and trying to get $800 + refunded. I was told the information was contained in the email confirmation & since I did not respond within 24 hours of making the reservation there was nothing they could do. I was not able to talk to a manager. I was told someone would call me back within 3-5 days. Still waiting. I did contact the FTC in Washington DC, so if this has happened to anyone else, please let them know.

This is a type of fraud/scam if you are not made aware of the terms verbally when making the reservation. Most business people do not check emails on a consistent basis. Any other hotel I stay at will charge my card after I have stayed. This is the SECOND time this has happened, guaranteed it will not happen again. When I went to Denver in May, my credit card was charged 3 months before my trip. And because I booked on-line, I did not even get credit for the HHonors program for the nights I stayed. There are too many respectable hotels that appreciate customers and they will get my business in the future!!!

Room was OK, Clean. Hallway stayed very cold (it's 40 outside and the AC stayed on). Pool area very hot, got dizzy had to leave. NO MICROWAVE, even Days Inn has them. Could not even cook popcorn. Overbilled me $60 a day, told takes 3 to 5 days to correct. Computer always does that and it automatically corrects itself, we were told. Did not even get a receipt when I handed in the door cards. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

I will have to say that I am disappointed in the Hilton. I am an 8 year vet and I asked for a discount to stay at the Hilton. They said that most of the hotels do give the discount but not that one. How can you not give a discount on Veterans Day to a vet. They will do it at other places but not this one. I have never stayed at the Hilton and after tonight I will never stay at one again. The other thing is Portland is having issues this weekend because of elections and I asked if it gets bad could I cancel without being charged and they said no. So they are going to charge me $183 cancellation fee because I do not want to risk my life and my friends' lives too. What the hell. Needless to say I do not care how nice the place is. I will not be staying there after tonight any more. So to all of the military persons out there if you want a discount here, sorry you will not be getting it.

Stay Away from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Birmingham - I cannot accurately describe how awful this hotel was. Something in the sheets made me break out with red rashy bumps on my arms, side, chest and hands. When I complained they switched me to a room with no bed. So I had to ask for a 3rd room which was a downgrade and I was NOT given a discount on the bill. I was told the General Manager would call me the next day which never happened - I had to call her. My whole situation was not a priority for the GM and the only compensation given was a few Hilton points. I have been a Hilton Diamond member for 11 years and never have I been treated so poorly. From the accommodations to the service my experience was beyond horrible. If you know what's good for you and your family avoid this place at all costs! You have been warned.

I was kicked out of the Home 2 Suites OKC South. I am a disabled veteran and was kicked out for my support animals, one week before veterans day. I was told they were too noisy, even though EVERY time I walked in they weren't barking. This morning they said they would change my room as they put me on the 1st floor next to the entrance adjacent to another room with other dogs. Then they called me after lunch and said I could no longer stay. When I got back to the hotel, I told the manager I was going to take legal action. As I walked back to my room, I gave her the finger. She then called my room a few minutes later saying I threatened her and that I had to leave immediately. She also informed me she called the police who arrived and told me I had to leave. Here is the kicker she told the police I refused to leave, so she was trying to get me arrested. I never said anything such thing.

I have been staying at Hilton Hotels for many years, and I'm a Hilton Honors member. No problems until I stayed in Savannah, Ga. We had a reservation on Oct. 28th to Oct. 30th 2016. We made a reservation for a suite and a balcony. We did not get a suite, when we enter the room. Really bad smell. But were really tired from the drive. So we did not complain. The staff was not very friendly. The staff did not explain any policies to us. She said sign here. She said next. Me and my husband left the Hotel got some to eat. When we got back the room we sat on the balcony. A lot of people were on their balcony smoking and drinking. It was very loud. My husband asked a person on their balcony so it's o.k. to smoke out here. They said yes. "No smoking signs out here sir. Every body does." We did smoke two cigarettes. Because it was outside not inside the room.

On Nov. 1st 2016 Hilton charged my card $250.00 for smoking on the balcony. REALLY There are NO SIGNS ON THE BALCONY!!! Where are the signs? You have thousands of signs in your Hotels. Not one the balcony. This is a scam. When I called the Hotel the lady was so rude to me. I told her "I will not come to your Hilton again", and I was cutting my card up. She said over and over "this is my policy." She would not let me talk. Very bad customer service, and I will also put this on Social Media. I will not be back. This is a SCAM.

Booked under "Government Rates" for official travel. Arrived after 10 hour drive and found that person I was to meet with would be departing prior to my meeting/expected stay time. Cancelled reservations at desk, told too late to cancel reservations for the Friday night stay, but that charges for expected Saturday and Sunday would be cancelled. Understanding hotel rules, said ok. Then get bill, Friday night cancelled' but Saturday and Sunday charged - complete reverse and doubling bill despite over 24 HR, cancellation notice for those days. Investigation finds Hampton Inn Marion taking advantage of local charity event for CANCER SURVIVORS to jack up rates and Hilton Corporate unwilling to intervene ("local hotel has decision") and feckless to intervene or fix their own reservation confirmation that says "Government Rate" with cancellation rules attached, when it is, or supposedly not. Never use Hilton again.

They were helpful, gave us plenty of options. It was a little pricey but for the area it was a good deal. Hotel was very pretty, had a nice pool and cool rooftop bar. Good gym. We don't usually opt for extras but it seemed standard. Overall the hotel the great. It was clean, beautiful and quiet. The location was perfect for walking to our preferred bars/restaurants. The rooftop bar was a very neat feature (drinks are pricey!). Pool was very small, not for kids but great for adults looking for a nice cool off in the afternoon.

I understand that sometimes mistakes happen and there can be a double charge on a credit card (although it never happened to me before). I don't consider that a reason to stop using a hotel or the hotel brand (Hilton). What lost me as a customer forever to any of the Hilton Hotels is how this issue is being handled. It is NOT being handled. I stayed at the Hampton Inn on 8/22 and 8/23 and the reservation was made through a 3rd party reservation company. It was paid in advance of my arrival at the hotel. They took my credit card for incidentals and when I checked out was told there were no additional charges since it was prepaid. However, it is showing a charge of $201 and change on my credit card the day after I checked out.

I called the hotel and spoke with CHAAYA, who immediately went on the defense and ended up hanging up on me. I called her back and as soon as she heard my voice hung up again. I went online and filed a complaint with Hilton Corporation. I requested a call. To date, I have not received a call. I did receive an email telling me they talked to CHAAYA and she said it was because my card was declined with the 3rd party billing. My card has never been declined in my life, and if it HAD BEEN declined, why is it on my credit card statement - twice. Once with the 3rd party, and then it shows that Hilton billed me again. Hilton's blatant refusal to discuss the issue led me to file a complaint with the BBB who is looking into it. This sounds like fraud to me. Either way, I will NEVER use the Hilton brand again.

I was at Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport hotel for a wedding on 9//316-9/4/16. I put my son (18 months old) to bed at 10ish, I went to bed around 11. Around 11, my son started tossing around, I went to bed wondering reason for it. Around midnight, I woke up because my hands/arms started getting itchy, I turned on my flashlight and saw bed bug bites on my hand, I managed to kill in bed bug and took his picture...

I had a reservation at Hilton Ocean City Oceanfront Suites for Sept. 3rd and 4th nights but due to weather condition at Ocean City, MD (state of emergency due to hurricane Hermine) I asked to cancel the reservation. I have a one year old baby and could not feel safe to go there. But they have said they are going to charge penalty for 1 night (50000 points) which is ridiculous as it was not my fault to request the cancellation of the reservation 1 day before.

WORST handling of a reservation I have ever had... These people they have working for them are Incompetent. First I call the hotel to find the room rates they say 234.00 per night... While I'm on hold I find the same room on Trivago for 116.00 a night. I bring this to the attention of the phone rep. She says "no, no, no, don't book it through Trivago. We guarantee the best prices and we also have a website you go to and will receive an additional 50.00 (**) but I need to reserve the room. They won't charge my card (**). I say ok, hang up, go to the website, fill in all required areas and receive an email confirming THEY received it... Call the hotel 2 day later to just confirm my reservation... cause of so many bad reviews about this hotel's reservation problems. And was told my room was available but was 234.00. I said "no, no, no, it should be 134.41 as stated on the Trivago website."

They asked for my email confirming my guarantee price match... I gave them the confirmation #**... They say they don't have a record of it... Hummmm. This continues for about 3 hours. I started the original. Call at 2:48 pm on Friday. By 6 pm they say they don't know, there's nothing they can do and since it's past the 24hr mark they can't end my reservation?? Well guess what if your incompetent employees would of figured it out when I called at 2:48 pm almost an hour and a half before my (24) hr deadline we wouldn't be seeing this post.

I did think highly of the Hilton hotels in general. But come on people I got a hotel right down the street with a pool and very wonderful complimentary breakfast and even allowed me to stay an hour after my original check out time for (150.00) and guess what... it was the Hampton Inn 1301 race street. I would recommend this hotel. Very friendly staff and nice pool. I will stay here again... And they're owned by the same company what the **... Your over the phone reservation staff need to be sent to re-education camps.

I was updating my profile on Hilton HHonors and checking hotels for a future trip I might take in Hungary. Next day I notice my credit card has a charge from the Hilton in Budapest. After numerous calls, and emails to both Hilton HHonors and the hotel directly in Budapest, Hungary I was treated with most disrespect a human can be treated. No one would help and told me it is my fault. I advised them I cannot be in Hungary from Chicago that same day and I was only checking for prices not purchasing anything. Hilton stole close to $300.00 from illegally charging my credit card.

My son and girlfriend were going to New York for a mini vacation and I wanted them to stay somewhere a little nicer than they would normally pay for. I bought them the American Express Hilton Gift card so they could do just that. They decided on Hilton Time Square but were unable to make reservation with the card. I called Hilton Honors to see how they could use the card to make the reservation and was told after being transferred 2 times that they needed to call redemption center to make reservation and redeem card (WRONG!). My son called and after being transferred 3 times and 45 minutes later, found someone they thought knew what was going on. Woman said she would make their reservation at Hilton Time Square, but they needed to pay upfront with a credit card and when they checked in, advise desk they were changing payment and using gift card. Woman said card would be credited back and gift card used for payment. (WRONG)

My son just called from New York and said hotel would not honor card as it had been an advance purchase and room was paid. I called HH and was told since it was booked advance pay nothing could be done, take the cards and use them to pay her credit card bill (WRONG). Cards can only be used on Hilton properties. I was transferred to advance purchase desk, they transferred me to Hilton Help desk. I was told they had been booked a lower rate which was advance purchase and nothing could be done. My contention was that woman who booked room knew a gift card was being used, told them incorrectly how it would be handled at hotel, but booked room as advance purchase. Now we have 300.00 in gift cards which Hilton customer service does not know how they work so who knows how to use them, kids in New York paying for something over their budget, and a HH rewards member that will never again recommend Hilton or its affiliates.

I am out of work, have traveled and stayed at Hilton properties for over 27 years, and when requesting access to my points to use for an upcoming stay, I was informed by Gisele in Dallas Customer Relations that I was ten days late on using/staying with Hilton and that all my points are dissolved! As a gesture, she said she can reinstate me but it will cost me half my points accumulated and available... And that she can give back some points as long as I stay at a Hilton for certain qualifying stays. This is outrageous. She said it is policy and that the VP of Hilton HHonors, Chris Nassetta is the one in charge and that this is as far as she can go. Unreal!

Years of using Hilton, and this is their method of handling a loyal customer who happens to be out of work. I am very dissatisfied in Gisele of Dallas and the policy of Vice President of Hilton HHonors Chris Nassetta! By the way I started with "Mary" out of an offshore C/R office, does not understand or speak English well. If I didn't know Hilton over the years I would think this is a company in serious decline. Hope not.

When calling to cancel my reservation at Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center this morning, I surprisingly found out I was over the time limit of 72 hours. I was unaware of a 72 hour cancellation. I was over 48 hours and accustomed to a 24 hour cancel policy like all the other hotel chains we stay at. In speaking with customer service at corporate they informed me of the cancel policy but that it is up to the individual hotel to waive the first night's fee.

The corporate office sent over an email to this hotel, Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center, asking for a cancel credit and I called them direct as well. I was told by Christine, the financial person who has the final say at that location, that the 72 hour cancel is "fair and equitable" for everyone and kept repeating that and they would not allow the fee to be waived. She said they cannot distinguish between a death in the family, missed flights, etc so. therefore the, their stance stands.

I can only say how absolutely upset and sadden I am by her remarks. Fair and equitable basically means in a nutshell they don't want to be "bothered" and they don't have a heart, they don't care what the circumstances are and that a policy is a policy and there is no adjustment even though the corporate office claims there can be. This hotel will likely rebook this room as they are currently sold out anyway.

We have stayed at the Hilton chain over our many years, just recently becoming a member of their awards program as I figured "why not". I have been happy with our stays at other properties and have been met with high customer service but I am very dishearten by this one particular hotel location, Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center. They were not understanding at all and couldn't care less and that is not "human" in my opinion.

As a business owner myself, I understand policy however, there is such a thing as using good judgement and with this management team at this location, Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center, this seems to be fully lacking. Somehow I can't help but think if the shoe were on the other foot this management team and Christine at this location would think and act otherwise. Very very disappointed. Heartless. At this hotel it's all about the money, not customer service when needed - that was very obvious. Also this hotel is booked solid with no room for the date they are changing for the missed day. How greedy does the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Convention Center need to be? Unethical.

I was once again disappointed with the Hilton Brand. I choose it again because my daughter works for the company but again I DISAPPOINTED!! I came to California for my cancer treatment and asked to reserve an ocean view room, but when I arrived I was told there were no more available, they didn't know what happened. I asked to speak to manager but was told he wouldn't be in until the morning which I would be at the clinic then but they would take care of it.

I asked for one of my nights to be complementary if they couldn't get what I reserved or I needed to move hotels to one more affordable and closer to my clinic as this hotel was an hour away. The only reason I came to this hotel was to see the ocean. So no sense in being here if I couldn't see it. Needless to say they did not even have the manager respond to my request or anything. I asked 3 times to at least speak to one and finally at check out he came out and was rude and unapologetic about the expense, the inconvenience and the switch of my room.
