estandby upgrade

Jump to last reply

I recently booked two rooms at a hilton brand hotel, using the hilton website. I will be traveling with my elderly mother and staying 3 nights and booked 2 rooms and planned to call the property to request adjoining rooms. At the end of the reservation process I was offered an "estandby upgrade". Basically, if I check the box for any of several upgrade options, if that option is available when I arrive at the property, I will get the upgrade and pay the price attached to the upgrade I chose. "Adjoining room" was one of the options and it would tack $25 per night to my reservation. So, $75 for adjoining rooms that otherwise may be available anyway, and free. Other options were, "away from the elevator" and "high floor" as well as actual upgrades to rooms.

Has anyone else had experience with this? I think I will take my chances and not pay too increase them.
