The experience was no different a few weeks later when we stayed at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport and discovered the renovations done on the rooms still couldn't hide the fact that the bathroom was in dire need of a makeover.
But there, on the vanity outside the bathroom was that Cuisinart dual-cup, single-brew coffee maker ready to comfort us with a fresh cuppa' hot Italian brew--and a chance to ponder Hilton's brand standards.
The Cuisinart coffee maker is actually found in most Hilton hotels in the U.S., and has been since 2006, as it's part of the Hilton Serenity Collection which you can buy for your own home. It includes fancy schmancy amenities like alarm clocks, pillows, LaSource toiletries, doggie beds and that amazing coffee maker, which will only set you back about 50 beans. Dollars, that is. Not coffee beans.
