Executive Lounge and Club Ratings, Reports and Reviews: The Best and The Worst

I see many postings about the frustrations with Executive Lounges.
The one which was real nice in my experience was the Munich Park. First class in decor, service plus compl nice food and drinks.
When for a short time the Camino REALS were part of HH, the Mexico City C R gave us wonderful complimentary drinks and food all day.
Which ones were you either very pleased or very disappointed with?

The executive lounge at the Hilton Fontainebleau Miami is pretty nice.

It does a good breakfast, buffet. Nice decor and has a great view

The Executif Lounge in the Hilton Quebec City is quite nice, although it is odd that it is located just off the lobby of the hotel. A very nice deluxe continental breakfast is served until 11 am. on weekdays, until noon on the weekends. Cocktails are served from 5-10 p.m. each day, with very tasty hot and cold appetizers from 5-7 p.m. Thumbs up for this lounge.

Well the antwerp hilton has a hot breakfast waiting on the 5th floor every morning and every evening they have a choice of beers, top shelf spirits and cooled champagne all gratis..

Nice people, (A Rarity in Belgium) nice property and good rooms.

All you can drink, free wine at the Hilton Paris.

Domestically, the Hilton Woodland Hills (North of Los Angeles) has a nice lounge.

I agree that the Hilton Paris had a good spread of food and free wine(I think it was ALL day)but the female on the desk had a real attitude when I was there 3 yrs ago(and I was paying). I hope she is not there on my next trip.
Conrad HK had great food and free french (but they didnt like me having 4 per night)
Conrad Singapore also had great view great food and free french(once again they counted drinks)-do I sound like a slosh??
Hilton Waikialoa and Huntington Beach both ok and honor bar.
most of the others not very memorable.

I really liked the lounge at the Hilton @ AMS airport. While it was small and nothing to rave about in terms of evening food or breakfeast (but we got coupons for the full buffet for free without asking), it features very nice views of the airport and one runway mainly used for arrivals...and a decent selection of drinks that were available on self-service basis as much as you liked (I think the four in our party emptied two bottles of wine while watching airplanes coming in).

Greetings - Dirk

Also good lounges at the following Airport Hiltons:
Paris (CDG)
Rome
Copenhagen (new)

Have always been treated well at the Hilton Logan Airport / BOS. Same goes for the SLC Hilton, (which isn't exactly the nocest Hilton I've ever stayed in) but the concierges have always been kind & helpful....the Crown on the rocks ain't bad, either!

The Conrad in SIN is pretty good, both breakfast and evening drinks are pretty good.

The SIN Hilton is not as nice. The building is older than Conrad.

The Montreal Bonaventure Hilton, Chicago (both Tower & Palmer House) are OK. Typical North American breakfast. I was told that Palmer House gives complimentry drinks between certain hours, but I had to fill out a form with the amount, but never got charged!

Toronto Hilton has nice drinks and they have a pool table in the lounge!

I liked the lounge in the Hilton New Orleans Riverside property.

The lounge in Hilton Minneapolis is quite good also.
