We were not staying in the hotel but we came here twice in the same day to enjoy drinks and appetizers on the deck with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico - wow what a sunset!! Staff was top drawer all around, servers, bartenders and beachers. Hotel is closed for the next 18 months for renovations to "meet... More

Despite the faded décor, this resort is in a primo location right on Longboat Key, a lovely quiet beach on the Gulf Coast. It will be closed, torn down, and rebuilt starting this Summer. Our stay was a good one. Staff was very accommodating and the beds were comfortable, although price was a bit high for the quality received. Here's... More

Great location. More than adequate rooms. Nice view from outdoor eating area. Okay food. Great rates considering the primo location. When we were there they were contemplating a major renovation. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.

beautiful beach but restaurant and accommodations leave a lot to be desired. I would have liked to know the hotel was being torn down in a month. I would have reconsidered my stay. But I will gladly go back when the hotel re opens!!

Dated musty smelling room. Pool closed very early, and property was just "ok." If you want to be on a secluded beach and dont care about the room quality, it might be ok for you. Wasn't enjoyable for me.

It will be sad to see this hotel close for 18 months, it is the best place to stay on Longboat Key. We have been coming here for over 30 years. Truly magnificent.

This is a beautiful hotel right on the beach in Longboat Key, Florida. Because we were celebrating my birthday, our room was upgraded to a corner room overlooking the beach. We select only hotels that offer balconies, and this room offered us a spectacular view and amazing sunset. Returning from my birthday dinner, we found a full bottle of champagne... More

I wish someone would have told me that this hotel is closing for 1 1/2years in 2 weeks to get completely remodeled. Currently this does not look or feel like a Hilton property. There were holes in the ceiling, bugs in my room, peeling paint, old and out dated everything, and just not up to Hilton standards in my opinion!... More

The resort has a nice beach location and is a great place to unwind. Large rooms with nice balconies are very accommodating. Carpets are aged and water pressure is rough; however, the staff is very nice and the resort has a smooth yet rustic beach feel. I would recommend the resort as excellent if they did a little upgrading. Very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hilton Longboat Key is nestled among ancient Banyan trees on the picturesque island of Longboat Key, just off the coast of Bradenton and Sarasota. A 102-room boutique-size property, the Hilton Longboat Key is the kind of place that you come to for a relaxing vacation where you dig your toes in the powdery-white sand and sip on tropical drinks while you watch dolphins and manatees swim by. Just 8 miles South on Lido Key, the 100 shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle will satisfy the shopaholic in you, as well as your cravings for fresh seafood, frozen drinks and upscale fare. The water rules here, and there is plenty to do to become one with our island lifestyle --- you can rent jet skis and sailboats right out on our beach, or take a kayak nature tour through the mangroves on Lido Key. Our team invites you to relax and enjoy all that the Longboat Key area has to offer. ... more   less
