Exclamation Lounge Status at Hilton Family Properties -

Which Hilton family properties still have lounges?

Let's make a comprehensive list of the Hilton properties that do and do not have lounges. Feel free to add your favorite or least favorite property to the list as long as it is not already there.


NOTE:

I am not able to list everything in this box because it would take too long to format and I am not able to post HTML. Because of this, I have a list of Hilton properties with and without lounges in two formats - PDF and Microsoft Excel. If anybody is willing to help and format the information for FT that would be greatly appreciated!!

Sorry in advance about the sketchy looking links - is there a better way to do this? PM me if you have a solution, want to reformat everything, or have powers that will allow me to post HTML (which I can send to you for approval).




Here is the PDF version through Google Docs:

Here is the Microsoft Excel version through Google Docs:


https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B1G...5YjIz&hl=en_US



Feel free to post new information to the list and I will provide updates as necessary.

Now I need a vacation after putting this together...

Have fun!

This is a repost from another thread. I'm reposting here because this seems more appropriate than the first thread I posted in.

ust how many hotels do not have lounges? Most of my travel is with HIs, HGIs, and the occasional Embassy stay mixed in. By pure luck and happenstance I've wound up gaining lounge access at several Marriotts over the last year (including some small properties, such as the Huntsville, AL Marriott). Since most Marriott-brand hotels have lounges, I (blindly?) assumed that most Hiltons do, too.

Honestly, I've never had lounge access at a Hilton even though I should (theoretically) have access to it. I was about to book some leisure travel with the family where I was kind of looking forward to this benefit.

So, the question is: do most properties have lounges? Or are they rare (and oversold by Hilton as a benefit)?

And, if it's the latter, can anyone tell me how Marriott compares in this regard? (And if they status match? )

London Lounges

I'm planning a short vacation to London. Access to the Executive Floor and lounge is a great benefit. Does anybody have any suggestions on what hotels have a good lounge, a great one or those with none at all? Hilton.com does provide some information on the lounge but it basically a Yes / No.

As of last year the Hilton in Knoxville, TN had an executive lounge. I will be going back next month and we will see if they still have one, I would assume they do.

Note: If you're willing to do the work, you should probably look back at this thread (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hilto...est-worst.html) to gather all the old information.

New Jersey

Hilton Parsippany - Has nice lounge historically. But, new management just started with some indications of lounge cutbacks (staffing, hours, offerings) so this is a TBD. Great place to gather small (4-5 people) group if needed.

Hilton Hasbrook Heights - very small lounge (converted room).

Germany

Hilton Munich City - Nice EU class lounge
Hilton Dresden - Nice EU class lounge

California:
Hilton SF-Union Square (on O'Farrell)-Lounge permentantly closed
DC:
Washington Hilton-Has lounge and is open weekends. Breakfast, open during the day all day, evening appetizers, cash bar.
Embassy Row-No lounge

For vegas while there is no EL, if you are a diamond you can use the VIP lounge. sometimes there are cookies and mixed nuts but no other food. But there is free bottled water, soda and if you drink they have free wine and beer as well. REALLY nice thing about that lounge is you can avoid the long checkin lines at the front desk and there is usually never a wait for them to check you in or check you out in the lounge (and since you cant your folio online and they don't put one under your door and you ALWAYS have to call the diamond desk to get your points corrected ALWAYS get a copy of your bill printed before leaving here).

Ontario-Canada
Hilton Toronto Downtown-Lounge Breakfast and honors bar.
