    I want to see the Hilton section build up a repisitory of "living" hotel reviews (i.e., after a stay, search to see if there is a thread on the hotel. If yes, add a brief review on that thread with your two cents. If not, create one). My hope is we can get a lot of strong information without too many duplicate threads.

    Frankly, I trust you all more than I trust what I see on Tripadvisor and I also believe my fellow MilePointers are more likely to comment on items like how the hotel treats elites and if there is an executive lounge.

    Here's my challenge: For every new hotel review thread between now and the end of 2011, I'll make a loan on Kiva as a member of the MilePoint team.

    My biggest issue with tripadvisor is they never mention if they have any status when they're complaining about upgrades or not. It makes some difference.

    Sorry I can't add to the list to help your kiva drive, but I do like when more reviews get put up too.

    I hope as well, the data will come with time and as more make an effort to post their stay experiences.

    My biggest issue with Tripadvisor is that most posters appear (to me anyways) to be travelers who don't stay in many places and don't travel frequently. I much prefer to read about stay experiences from travelers who do stay in many places, their perception is of greater benefit to me as they have been around the block a few times. That said, I do use TA if traveling to an area where there are no chain hotels or few of them. I NEVER use TA for restaurant advice, no way, not going to happen.

    I appreciate all the likes, but I'd love for some folks to review the Hilton family hotels at which they recently stayed. I know some of you at least must stay at Hiltons, give how much you travel!

    So far, I've only 'had' to make Kiva loans for the threads I've started. I'd like for some of you to also make a dent in my checking account :)

    I'm another that would love to see more hotel reviews on this site. Seeing so many peeps here have status surely they must have some reviews they could post. I also look at Trip Advisor but find so many on there seem to have such unrealistic expectations or on the other end they rave about things that I strongly dislike.

    lol, you get to pick your loans. :) The next two stays, at two different properties, are in January. I think your pledge was just for 2011.

    That was a nice pledge, a win-win all around. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I'm thrilled to have 5 more loans to make, thanks to Philphactor (4 reviews!!!) and Estnet. Thank you both. I'll make the loans when I return home on Friday.

    Thanks DAS02135! ... I like the effort and the incentive ... totally agree that reviews from fellow MP'ers have more credibility than Trip Advisor and others. I need to remember to take pics of the properties. I have a maybe 5-6 more properties to post if they're not already listed.

    Are there any other Hilton family properties from your recent travels that you'd like to review?

    Sorry for falling behind. Between not working much around the holidays and having a tough week after breaking up with my girlfriend of 2+, I wasn’t on the internet much.
    I also made another 5 for the reviews I intend to add in the next few days.

    My review of Hilton Garden Inn Mystic/Groton, CT disappeared. I notified one of the admins.

    I added Hampton Inn Brookhaven today.
