Design-wise, the lounge is far more modern than what we'd expect from a Hilton, but we suppose its location within this ultra-slick building and the demographic of globetrotting businessmen help things out. It's quite obvious. however, that major cues were taken from the look of Virgin Atlantic's old Upper Class lounge at JFK Airport.
The areas include a self-service food bar (with complimentary breakfast and dinner chafing dishes), free wine and spirits until 8pm, a dining area, two casual chillax areas, a work zone with a few computers and a rack of magazines and newspapers. We mainly gravitated towards places that had power outlets, which were few and far between.
· Do note that the WiFi here is not free, except for in 1-hour increments that are super annoying to click through registration pages to access. BLURGH. So the Hilton Garden Inn next door has free WiFi if you need it.
· If you spring for one of the paid drinks after 8pm and order some of the Port, the lounge attendant serves it in a glass meant for an old fashioned, and with ice cubes. Request your Port sans ice, or you'll have to dig out the cubes yourself.
