  1. The amenities for the Hilton Reno pretty much matched what was listed on the hotwire hotel listing page: Casino Airport Shuttle Restaurants(s) Pool(s) Fitness Center Spa Services High Speed Internet Access Childrens Activity Program Golf Nearby Tennis Nearby Buisness Center Laundry Facilities (Self Service)
  2. Based on the description by others and the amenities shown, I had a pretty good idea that this was the Hilton Reno. The discounted conference price was above $100/night and web sites even greater.
  3. Hotel is located in the outskirts of Rancho Mirage away from all the residental and commercial areas. This hotel is ideally suited for golfers and families with younger kids. The rooms for the resort are two stories high and are situated along a golf course. Received a standard non-smoking room with a king bed. Room was very large and included a sitting area with a sofa bed, table and chair that easily could sleep two kids. Bathroom was also very large with marble counters, bath robes, hair blower, vanity light/mirror, with a seperate bath/shower area. Westin is known for their comfortable beds and indeed it was. Our room was located on the first floor which could be a problem if you have a noisy neighbor above. During the day, the upstairs noise was quite noticible but never turned into a problem for us. Might want to request an upstairs room. There are several pools on the grounds. The main pool near the lobby is nice size with lounges closely packed together. Need to arrive early if you want to sit pool side or need a shaded umbrella. Pool activities include water slide, water basketball and water volleyball. Good pool service but can get crowded. There is an adult only pool for those wanting a more peaceful atmosphere. Overall we were very pleased with the hotel. Although located towards the outskirts of town, the drive to restaurants and shopping was easy to get to and not a problem. If you like to gamble, the Aqua Caliente Casino is located just down the road and provides a different option for entertainment and restaurants, including gambling. There is a $13 resort fee which included parking, daily paper, coffee and use of tennis courts. I hear this is pretty common at palm springs resorts. I still prefer to stay closer to down town palm springs, but would not hesitate to stay at the Westin Mission Hills resort if the price was right.
  4. Hotel is ideally located half block from Union Square on Powell Street. I had reserved two rooms and fortunately called in advance to request one of the rooms with two beds. Was told Hotwire rooms are normally queen only but they did accomodate my request for one of the rooms for two doubles. Older hotel with smaller rooms, especially the bathroom. If you are looking for a room with the newest upgrades in decor and marble couter tops and flooring, then this is not the place for you. Overall cleanliness was very good and comfortable. No charge for internet service wich is a plus but noticed that parking was $37/day. Our particular rooms were on the 14th and 17th floor so there was no issues with street noise. Nice restaurant/bar on the first floor of the hotel and has a popular bar/nightclub on the 21st floor with a great view that seemed to be a hot spot for evening drinks and dancing. If you are looking for a hotel with clean rooms, friendly staff, resonable price, with a great location, then this is a great choice.
  5. Was able to find a cheeper price for the same date on another website. Hotwire honored the "Double the Difference Guarantee". Will receive a $38 refund bringing the final total to $66/night.
  6. The Westin Mission Hills Resort. Listed as Resort, Restaurant(s), Pool(s), Fitness Center, Spa Services, High-Speed Internet, Children's Activity Program, Golf Nearby, Tennis Nearby, and Business Center. Listed as a Customer Favorite. Will use my $30 Entertainment Card discount which will reduce the cost even further. First time to this hotel and looking forward to the visit.
