Help!
Hilton messed up.
I had a reservation for 4 nights for a water villa at the Conrad for 95,000 points each. I thought I had the 5th night for free. When I called to confirm and double check about the 5th night, they said that it is not in the reservation and not available. After I complained and asked for the reservation specialist, she let me be on hold for half hour after which my phone got disconnected.
When I called again 2 days later I was told that they will change the reservation and add the 5th night. This was last week.
When I just now looked at the new email from last week I see that they downgraded me to a beach villa. HELP!!!!

I called them and spoke to a reservations specialist and she said that there is nothing they can do since that room is not available anymore. I pleaded for half hour and nothing doing. I told her that she can listen to all phone recordings and she will see that I was never told that they will downgrade the room in order to receive the 5th night free. Hilton needs to take responsibility for cheating me out of this room..

She said she will send an email to the Hotel. So now I wait and see. We all know the outcome of this. There are no rooms. She will not upgrade to better Water Villas wich are available. I'm a gold member.

What can I do?
Any advice?

Please help...

Thank you,

Best is for you to contact reservations at the Conrad. They have the power do open up availability and modify any reservation

Thank you,

With enough time and persistence, the downgrade can be rectified.

Seems the 5th night bungle is on you...

Does it matter? Try both, with enough HUCA it should eventually be rectified.

Pretty sure AJK meant the hotel directly, as they have the power to make the unavailable available. Reg reservations cannot do that
