It may take 18 -24 months for completion and may not reopen as a hilton. They are just starting demolition. They are remodeling existing rooms and adding a second tower with80+ rooms. It is to be very upscale when finished.

The demolition of the pool, hot tub, lobby, restaurant, meeting space and kitchen was completed in 2015 and we are now in the construction phase of the project. We anticipate reopening the resort in 12-14 months, please continue to follow Trip Advisor for updates. More

I really enjoyed the location and would like to visit again. Does anyone know the new name or owners? I have to keep typing. I don't know where else to ask for information, so I will have to ask here. Thank you and sorry.

The Hilton was a great hotel, but is was sold and is presently being remodeled. I am not sure when it will be open again but I would guess close to a year. I hope it will be bigger and better than ever. I cannot believe I have to keep writing. Seven words to go

The restaurant serves excellent food and drinks and you can eat inside or outside. If... More

Our third stay as a family at the longboat and the cracks are beginning to show. Cannot fault the location on the beach which is still about my favourite beach in the world but the decor is now showing its age at the Hotel and it's long planned renovation long over due. Staff were attentive and the breakfasts superb blueberry... More

We stayed here September 2013 and was looking forward to returning this October, will it be open by then & if so, how do we reserve ? Will be very sad and disappointed if we can't, we loved this hotel ! Can you recommend another similar hotel if you are not opening by October?

Wonderful location and friendly staff. Nice views from the restaurant and good breakfast and lunch. The small conference room worked well for our small business meetings. It was always so refreshing to walk out of the conference room during a meeting for a breath of fresh salt sea air!

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.
