MaLaSpeaks! “Let me tell your story”

I have got down to the nitty gritty of this commercial ad. What it does not tell you.

My focus is give you the facts along with my breakdown of what is reality versas fantasy. I going to give you the tea!

This is a breakdown per Ashley at DoubleTree Hilton 800 number from Instagram.

My first thought was, “hey discounts”!

I am getting ready to go on a trip to L.A. so excited to book a hotel. I found a hotel on Expedia.com and later through my counterparts recieved a discounted rate for an upcoming event.

It was a more convenient and a little higher rate than at Expedia.com. But, definitely cheaper than the regular room rate which the Sales Department at DoubleTree Hilton in Carson helped me with. Thank you!

Then I saw the commercial! Okay. How low can it go. Can you get down low all the way to the floor. No! Wishful thinking…Lol!

But Ashley broke it down for me. The competitor’s rate such as (Expedia.com) has to be lower than the Hilton’s rate which includes exact replica per person, bed type (for example King bdrm etc.) and it has to be for DoubleTree Hilton or the location you plan to stay at exactly the same.

“Are you exhausted yet, because I am.”

Let’s keep this moving!

The Hilton customer relations agent is verifying the rate per while you are on the phone to ensure accuracy. Damn! Okay.

I thought when it meant competitors it meant other hotels. It is my understanding it is only for 3rd party competitors.

It can not be used with any other lower rate discounts from my understanding. If you are a Hilton Honors member it is a plus because they want to keep your business.

The messaging with doing the reservation online without a human person explaining all the rules is a disconnect to the consumers. It took me two phone calls and voicemail to get these answers for you!

My community at large to give you fact checks and balances on what we need to know about ads and commercial messaging.

So needless to say I kept my Expedia.com booking which is further away from the event (Lyft & Uber) is my go to transportation and I will not be with the group rate at DoubleTree Hilton which is closer to the venue and a shuttle bus takes you to the event.

“Convenience cost more! Why!”

I am a little disappointed but, maybe DoubleTree Hilton might invite me another time.

My 1st trip to L.A. is so intense I have been packed for two months. If this had not been a conference trip I would be at DoubleTree Hilton.

My trip is to get acupuncture, boat rides on Long Beach, go to the conference, meet up with friends and eat great food.

I hope this was educational and informative for you as much as it was for me.

Thank you for being apart of my journey!

Hiya, my name is MaLa I grew up New Caney, Texas. My life has simplicity, common sense aspect to it, with a comedian twist. We had a mini farm that's when my outdoors adventure begun. My ancestors thrived on showing we care through Food, Fashion, and Entertainment. Food is my first love. It is the glue that binds my soul together, as a self proclaimed Chef. Fashion was not always matching but, it makes sense to me. Color schemes like yellow brighten up my spirit and orange is a bold direct explanation mark, in my opinion. That is me! Entertainment is my personal gift I have which comes easy to me without being forced. I am ready for you to follow my journey in these three areas and many more. Thank you for following me.
