Hilton: how the Garden Inn saved us

By | Reviews to Share | No Comments

After four nights camping in Yellowstone National Park, and another two in Grand Teton, we were stinky and sore. And a long drive from Jackson Hole, WY to Billings, MT is enough to make anyone cranky and tired. But again, we were saved by civilization! This time by Hilton’s line of superb roadside accommodations: their Garden Inns.

 

The one in Billings was suited to our needs: laundry for our smelly camp clothes, an indoor pool for the baby to get out her pent-up energy after a long car ride, and a hotel bar for the parents, complete with gourmet food and local brews. (Not to mention 24-hour business center, fitness facilities, and conference rooms available).

 

Hilton has a fabulous reputation for a reason: they are consistent in their provision of upscale service, and often at affordable prices. For the weary traveler, these Garden Inns, with over 550 locations worldwide, offer a haven of rest and rejuvenation.

 

For the loyal Hilton customer, Hilton timeshares offer even more amenities and vibrant locations. Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare resales are available in Hawaii, Florida, Las Vegas, California, Utah, and other international locations. Click on the link to see a listing of PTR’s current Hilton timeshare resales.

 

If you own and want to sell a Hilton Grand Vacations property contact our licensed agents—eager buyers may await you, as Hilton’s name carries weight and desirability.

Wyndham’s Haven in North Dakota

By | Reviews to Share | No Comments

Although you might be inclined to think that North Dakota is limited in its offerings of amenities and comforts, my experience here would challenge you to think again.

 

After four nights of primitive camping in State Forests and National Parks, and with a 10 hour drive between the Minnesota-Canadian Border and our next stop of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota, our family was ready for a brief return to civilization, or at least a shower.
American-Legion-State-Forest-Wisconsin

 

Surprisingly, Bismarck, North Dakota and its Wingate by Wyndham provided us with the haven we needed. We obtained a room for an affordable $104, and were happy to take advantage of its luxurious shelter.

Guest-laundry facilities and free wi-fi were only the start of our relief. With clean clothes and some work put behind us, we were only too happy to bask in the hot tub and lounge by the pool, which was spacious and sparsely populated, and featured section measuring only 18 inches in depth where my two year old could splash to her heart’s content.

 

The website will advertise “continental breakfast included,” but upon coming downstairs, we found pre-prepared bacon and eggs staying warm over a burner, and a cook ready to prepare your omelet, made-to-order, while we watched.  This Wyndham property also boasts an exercise facility, conference and meeting rooms, free parking, dry cleaning, and a hotel bar.

 

With a sleek décor and modern design, not to mention its location near shops from which we replenished our food supply and boosted our morale (a nail salon for me!), this Wyndham property was exactly what a week in the woods had ordered.

We are now refreshed and ready for the Dakotan Badlands!

 

(Wyndham also does timeshare across several states , including Nevada, Wisconsin, Hawaii, South Carolina, Arizona, Florida, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Texas, Arkansas, Virginia, Colorado and others, as well as internationally in Australia, the Bahamas, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. If you love Wyndham as much as I do right now, you might want to check out some Wyndham timeshares for resale.)
