Hilton Corniche Residence Abu Dhabi Complaint - Hilton in the Middle East is managed poorly

Review by Mohamed on 2007-06-29
I stayed in Hilton Corniche Residence and Beynounah in Abu Dhabi for a period of 45 days. I was surprised by the poor management of these Hotels. Hilton was supposed to grant licenses to Hotels that manage and train their staff properly and provide adequate services to the customers. Guess what? You will be very surprised by visiting these hotels. i had the worse experience of my life. First, management is handled by a group of Egyptians who play with prices. You will not see anything posted about the rates. Depending on your looks and how much are you willing to put under the table. I met an Italian who told that Arabs like briberies. Give some money on the side and you can stay for free. Second, the number of prostitutes who come to the hotel.

Theoretically "illegal," prostitutes go around and give some money to the receptionist who do not mind sending them to different clients in the hotel. Third, The brutality and exploitation of the employees. One employee told me that she had to have sex with her Egyptian boss to keep her job. her passport like the rest of the employees is held by the company and nobody can say for fear of reprisal.

I will never again stay in this hotel and I hope that Hilton make revokes licensing these parts of the world. Hilton bears a moral and legal responsibility for what is happening in these places.

I think this is one of the items on Paris' "to do" list.

And you stayed there for 45 days? I'm certain there are other hotels available.

'Hilton bears a moral and legal responsibility...' What? 'Hilton' and 'moral' used in the same sentence? :)

Did he stay the 45 days or did he check out after 23? I hear that is the new Hilton motto...pay for 45 and stay for 23!

voke, ROFLMAO. Our daughter brought us home an Arabian Pepsi, but warned us not to drink it. Well, I got desparate one day and opened it. I poured it over ice in a glass and took a big drink. That was a world class spit take. That was the worst thing I ever put in my mouth. If that soda was typical of things in the Middle East, which ties in with this report, I'll stay home, thanks.

THIRD WORLD COUNTRY STANDARDS ARE COMING TO A HOTEL NEAR YOU IN THE USA. EVER SEEN A COUNTRY TAKEN OVER FROM INSIDE, THE OLD USA IS BEING TAKEN OVER AND THE STANDARDS YOU ARE USE TO SEEING ARE GOING DOWN THE TUBES FAST. OUT OF 20 PROPERTIES IN A RADIUS OF 20 MILES 17 ARE OWNED BY FOLK FROM INDIA WHO PURCHASE A FRANCHISE FOR FIVE YEARS IN ONE NAME THEN CHANGE THE CORPORATE RECORDS INTO ANOTHER NAME TO AVOID BUSINESS TAXES, THEY MOVE IN THE FAMILY TO DISPLACE THE AMERICIAN LOCALS WHO NEED JOBS, PAY PROVERTY LEVEL WAGES AND EXPECT 18 HOUR DAYS FROM THEIR STAFF. THERE IS NO CUSTOMER SERVICE NEGOITATIONS AND STANDARDS ARE ONLY MAINTAINED WHEN THE INSPECTOR IS DUE IN TOWN.
