A sleepless night before a long flight
Posted Nov 26, 2016
We stayed at the Hilton our last night in Italy prior to a 20 hr journey home the next day. Upon check-in, the attendant behind the front desk made a comment to the bellboy (in Italian) that we "were not an Italian family". I'm not sure what difference that made but it made me uncomfortable. There were loud noises around our room that evening prior to us going to bed, but we thought they would diminish as guests settled in. No luck, and at midnight I finally called the front desk to complain. It seemed to settle down for a couple of hours but started again at 4:00 am. It sounded like we were either under a gym or a laundry! Not much rest to be had before our trip home. And not what I expected from a Hilton property.
