The hotel knew about it prior to our stay and they should have issued a bulletin. And yes on vacation after a late night DO NOT wake me at 815!!!!

If I used s/o else's platinum account for a stay at Hilton @ the falls, what type of compensation can I get for not getting any upgrade and wifi not working in room?
If I can get something, who should complain?

Not sure you can get compensation for not being upgraded.
For wifi not working, it is worth asking for compensation.
