    Cross posting to get a little more attention...

    I've laid down the gauntlet in the Hilton section by offering to make a Kiva loan for every new Hilton hotel which is reviewed by the end of 2011: http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/i-want-to-see-my-threads-with-hotel-reviews.23497/

    I believe my fellow MilePointers can make the Hilton section very robust by creating/adding to "living" review threads for as many of the Hilton hotels as possible, so this is my little incentive to try to get that happening. Given the high concentration of elites, I believe MilePointers' reviews will better focused on the questions we'd like answered (e.g., Is there a lounge? What sort of recognition is there of elites?).

    Mods, let me know if this is inappropriate.

    I think it is a great idea, I just posted a review on London Paddington Hilton.

    We're up to 2 loans made due to MilePointers reviewing a Hilton hotel. I've also made 6 loans to account for my recent reviews.

    Can we get to ten by Friday?

    Thanks to LIH Prem, we're up to 9 reviews and loans. Who will add a new Hilton review today and push us up to 10?

    Does it count if I review a hotel that has previous reviews? I was all set to do this, but there are many previous reviews for the hotel where I recently stayed!

    Sure! My desire is to get some really robust review threads for Hilton properties, and we'll only do this if many people share their experiences. How about you post a link to your review here so we know about it?

    Are you adding loans for adding content to already existing reviews?

    ie, you made a review of SF Union Sq Hilton. I have plenty of opinion on that and pics.

    If you ask, sure! Just post here so I get a head's up, okay? I want to see a diversity of opinions, especially since most reviews are made based on only one or two separates stays at a property, so the more opinions and experiences we get recounted a hotel review thread, the better informed other MilePointers will be.

    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.

    I've added 8 new loans in the past two days thanks to folks like MOA999, DMC730, Philphactor, and Estnet.

    Thank you all for continuing to build our library of reviews of Hilton-family properties.

    Everyone, there are still 13 days left in the month. Thank we can add a review-a-day to add 13 more loans this month?

    Thanks to reviews by rwoman, philphactor, and the ever-awesome DaS02135 I've added 7 more loans.

    Who's going to add the next review? I know a lot you are traveling for the holidays. Why not add a review?!
