Complaint: My family stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Hotel and we were inconvenienced on many occasions with the service provided with their guest service reps. We spent a great amount of money at the Hilton Waikoloa the dates of March 26 through April 2 of 2013 and I believe we were not given the excellent customer service that would go with spending over $2000 at a luxury Hilton Hotel. When we checked into the hotel we had reservations already completed, but the front desk attendant tried charging us for extra hotel fees that we had opted out of before wee could get the keys to our room and argued with my wife that we were required to pay them. The hotel charged us for self parking when we communicated that we had a handicapped placard for my wife and that handicapped parking was free through valet. Our hotel room had a bath tub with a malfunctioning drain plug, The clock radio light did not work forcing us to wake each other up to verify the time. The dresser drawers had a missing cupboard and half way through our vacation we had to move rooms to a higher balcony floored room because the hotel could not prevent the guests above us from pounding loudly on their floor and running what sounded like their luggage across the floor. We had restless sleep for three nights, which took out of our vacation time. The hotel room they moved us to had a safe that was a low battery and so we could not keep our valuables safe. My wife has bad knee problems and they placed us in the bank of rooms located between the two usable elevators. The wheelchair that security supplied us with was rickety and not safe. On several occasions while trying to push my wife in the wheelchair it got caught on the pathway and my wife almost was thrown forward out of the wheelchair even when I went very slow. While attending the Legends of the Pacific Luau, I was forced to wheel my wife in the wheelchair backwards for fear of her being thrown forward out of the wheelchair as the walkway was dangerously sloped and no one offered us to use the service elevator until after the event was completed. Although even while traversing to the service elevator the wheelchair got stuck and my wife's toe got pinched as she barely caught herself from falling forward out of the wheelchair and no one thought to send us a safer more sturdier wheelchair. During the Luau event my wife was told that the tickets we were given were for purchasing alcoholic drinks, but when she tried ordering Guava Juice, they tried charging her for it when she had given me, her husband, her tickets as she was not drinking any alcohol. We almost missed our connecting flight as we had called down to the concierge desk to have our bags taken to the valet area so we could leave with plenty of time to get the rental car we rented back and check-in to the airport. The concierge desk attendant wrote our room number down and after four calls to the concierge desk they finally realized their error and one hour had already passed which made us late getting the rental car back to the agency and the bus driver had to make a special exception and rush us to the airport. The delay in time of the hotel and their error almost made us miss our flight, which would cause us to miss the last connecting flight of the day from Maui and thus resulting in me missing my important business presentation that could have cost me my job and we would have had to pay for different day airline tickets plus extra days for airport parking. If it were not for the rental agency picking up the slack for the Hilton Waikoloa employees' blunders we would have missed our flight. As it was the plane was delayed getting out of Kona airport and arriving at its gate in Maui thus the plane keeping its doors open for us as the last passengers made the plane delayed getting into the gate terminal in Maui. I tried getting compensation from the hotel manager and the executive hotel corporate official for the calamity the hotel brought to our vacation, but they did not want to do anything.
Desired Settlement: I am proposing that Hilton Waikoloa refund half of the money I spent for the calamity they caused my family on our vacation, the unsafe wheelchair they gave us that caused my wife injury, the improper and incompetent guest service they provided us, the low quality of the room they gave us to stay in, and the inconvenience they caused us and other entities due to their error and mistakes. I have never been to a Hilton hotel and had so many mistakes made and treated with such indifference to my complaint of poor service by managers and executive officials. I would have hoped that a luxury hotel carrying the Hilton name would have treated their guest more appropriately.

Willing to reimburse 50% of Room charges & tax or $937.23 ($275.68 + $11.48 State Rm Tx + $25.50 Occ. Tx=$312.41 x 3=$937.23)to MC CC used upon check out. Consumer's Final Response /* (2000, 7, 2013/05/20) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I do accept the response from the company. I feel satisfied that the issues with our vacation though very stressful and full of calamity will be resolved with the offer that they presented of the reimbursement of $937.23. I hope tat if my family finds themselves staying at the Hilton Resort at Waikoloa Village in the future that our stay will be more enjoyable and free from incident.

Complaint: Poor food, poor and odd service, poor atmosphere Thank you in advance for your time and consideration reading this. We ate the breakfast buffet today, we had some concerns.....I am not a person to complain about meals or service, I usually just try to forget it and never go back but I am on my honeymoon and your place is the only buffet nearby. So here are some observations to help you see my point of view. 1st, the price. In this day and age of internet savvy eaters, your prices should be online. A $***** breakfast sticker shock was not in my plans but I dealt with it. 2nd, the service. The waiter was kind of bothersome as he hovered waiting for the check to be paid (he had presented the check the instant we had sat down from getting our plates and stood there as if he was waiting for payment). He was nice, but seemed rather concerned that we wanted to pay cash instead of charge to our room. His name was ***** or ***** I think. His actions made us feel unwelcome until after we settled the check so I paid and then tipped him with a fork in my hand and a mouthful of food and then stayed another hour or so while we ate and attempted to enjoy our first Hawaii honeymoon breakfast. 3rd.....the food. It was OK....not great, but OK. The omelet guy (*****)aside from not smiling once needs a small refresher on how to cook an omelet. Mine was way underdone and runny. Much of the fruit we had was over ripe and at room temp. as well. The bacon had gone rubbery and the scrambled eggs were also quite watery. Everything else we had was good. I would love to try it again, but at this point we will most likely not attend or recommend......sorry. thanks again for reading.
Desired Settlement: Do what you think is right.
