When a Hilton Room "Upgrade" really isn't

Guess which view cost $40 less...

We've enjoyed our first full day at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, especially after sorting out the room situation.

We had, foolishly in retrospect, applied for a "standby" paid upgrade. Hurray, we got the upgrade, but we ended up in the Ali'i Tower, an older building and our "garden view" room was mainly of a building across the way.

We spoke to the front desk and got ourselves "downgraded" to the Rainbow Tower today. Here we sit in a lovely room on the 23rd floor with a million-dollar view of Diamond Head, waiting for the Friday night fireworks later this evening. All that and $40 a night cheaper - what a deal!
