Hilton Hotel - Overnight guest using lift to leave with out room key?


man1981man

Recommended Posts

Considering staying at the Hilton in  few months but have a bit of an issue I have heard of.

 

When taking a girl back staying in other hotels, in the morning I would normally kick them out they would make there own way to reception and pick up ID card etc. However I have heard at the Hilton a keycard is required to use the lift, which would mean I would need to get up with them and escort them to the reception to pick up ID etc. Can anyone confirm if the girls can leave on there own and say use the lift to go only to reception etc without the use of keycard.

 

I dont mind paying for the Hilton and the Guest Fee, but I detest the idea of having to Escort them out the building, when all I want to do is sleep.

I'll need to go over & check, but I can't ever remember having to use a keycard to go to reception - only from reception to the guest floors.  It's a standard practice in many hotels for security to use a keycard for access to guest floors, but I have never been to a hotel where you need the card to go to reception from the guest floors.  (And I'm in the travel industry working with hotels - been in hundreds of 'em)

From what I have seen there, and is with a lot of hotels that require a room key/card to use the lifts, you don't need to swipe the card when you are heading to the lobby but only headed to the guest room floors.

That's probably because it would violate every fire code in the universe.

I doubt that they would be permitted to “lock” the lifts from reception. As Pattaya Brian said it would be against safety codes. No way he “Hilton” would leave themselves open to this kind of problem...It is like locking fire escapes.

There are some that only employ words for the purpose of disguising their thoughts.

Confirmed I didn't need a keycard to go back to reception.

My understanding is that in the event of fire, the lifts should NEVER be used..

I have heard that the Hilton will charge you 1000 THB for bringing any girls back - is that right?

Yes, and they can make the girl feel a bit uncomfortable also.

Thats a bit shit as its a nice hotel especially the jacuzzi on the balcony.  Is it possible to give her a room key you walk ahead go in seperate and rendezvous at the room or are they checking names off like a high security jail?

Damn, redeeming points to stay for 2-3 nights in June.  Will be following this thread.

Little bit off topic but I couldn't find any specific thread on Hilton and I didn't want to start a new one only to ask a simple question. Anyway, I'm planning to stay 3 weeks in Hilton and I was wondering what are the breakfast hours there? In specific, what time does the breakfast end...?

I hope you got in before the price/point increase!  I didn't have many HH points, but used what I had for 2 nights in November -- got the room for 35,000 points/night, but it went up (for all bookings made after March 28, I believe) to 50,000 points/night.  

 

I wish I'd had another 30,000+ points so I could have snagged a 3rd night, as I am in Pattaya for 3 nights before heading up to BKK for a convention.  I ended up cashing out some Marriott points for the other night (they also recently increased required points/night)

 

I realize the 1000 baht joinder fee at Hilton sucks, but the free room makes it sting a little less.  

 

Again, sorry to digress from the OP, but what is the daily wifi access charge at the Pattaya Hilton?   I am considering getting a HH credit card to get Gold status so I can get free wifi if the charges are high.

I think it was 500THB for WiFi per day last year.

1000 baht joiner fee and making the girls feel uncomfortable.

 

Why stay in a hotel that obviously doesn't want you there, and as for 500 baht a day for wifi that should be free especially at the prices they charge.

If true, that is laughable.

I thought fire codes stated to never use a lift in case of fire ?

I'm 99% sure the Holiday Inn charged something like 600 baht/day last November, and I was "Platinum" in their guest rewards program.  Starting in January, Platinum members got free wifi, but that didn't do me any good.  They did offer free wifi in the lobby.

 

In Las Vegas, you either get hit with an absurd fee for in-room wifi OR they hit you with a daily "resort fee" that includes free wifi.

That is really ridiculous for WiFi keeping also in mind that I paid a total of 200,000THB for accommodation and still they would have charged 500THB per day for WiFi. Of course I could have paid it since it would not have been a big cost compared to total cost of my stay but I chose not to pay because it was unreasonable.

The new fee is 40k points for basic king seaside view.  I cancelled and booked the jacuzzi room at VT6 through dancewatchers/Tik. It is right next door and get a jacuzzi with a view of Pattaya.  Also the Amex Hilton is what I have and it comes with the Priority Pass and Gold status with Hilton.  The PC card from Chase gets you free reward night and Platinum status with them.  So I broke it down to 3 nights free with Holiday Inn and out of pocket for Dancewatchers VT6 jacuzzi room.  I wasn't aware of this until I saw a guy's trip report and it looked fantastic for the deal.  Hilton is a big rip off and not girl friendly so I voted with my feet and moved next door.  I will redeem the points in Dubai or in the states.  I will probably ditch the Amex Hilton card once I get all of this traveling out of my system.
