I stayed here on a business trip, but brought my family with me for the first few days. The location is fantastic - off the marina, surrounded by parks, and close to the beach by car. It was close to the airport and easy to access the interstate, downtown, and the convention center. The hotel grounds provided enough activities to... More

Was in town with the family for a football game and we enjoyed the property. We were in room 140 somthing and had no issues with orders. Room was clean and beds were comfy. But like other have said the buildings and rooms are dated. Our room had minor cosmetic issues in the bathroom but other than that room was... More

I had the time of my life. I got exactly what I asked for. I wanted a relaxed weekend with spa treatment. Everything was accessible in one location which made it so much easier. My only complaint would be with my Ceasar salad that had alot of excess water at the bottom and not enough dressing to give it any... More

While we stay at many Hiltons and this was our 1st stay at this hotel, we will NOT be back. We were told all rooms were re-modeled and very similar. The room decor was 'ok' but bathrooms & ouside hallway area seemed dated and dirty. Plus our location (which had an entry directly from the outside) seemed more like a... More

This resort hotel has been around for several decades and it shows in some ways. The room was very comfortable (especially the bed) and large, with a balcony with comfortable seating that had a nice view of the bay (on the 5th floor). For my taste, the lighting could have been better. The switch at the door connected to a... More

If you are looking for a beach-type hotel stay, this is not it. The beaches were kind of dirty, and not what you would like to layout on, to relax. The room smelled musty, but overall, the stay was fine. I had meetings downtown, and was looking forward to a relaxing stay on the beach. If you are looking for... More

Stayed for a conference and have mostly nothing but compliments for The Hilton Resort and Spa. It serves its purpose very well and I could see myself staying here on holiday just as much as business. Breakfast was slightly overpriced but maybe that was room service.... And I was searching for more range in the restaurant. The pool, views, rooms,... More

The sunset from our room was breath taking. It is a large resort and is beautiful but it is getting old. Our room was over looking the water and it was nice and clean. The stay was very relaxing until the weekend with a wedding party of 300. They made us move our car so the walk to our room... More

A very nice hotel, comfortable rooms, your typical Hilton property with a few added bonuses. The front desk was very professional. The housekeeping kept the room in tip top shape. The hotel itself was very well taken care of. The beds were amazing. The wife and I slept like babies! We will be back.

This is a very nice Spanish style hotel on the surface, but they hit you with a $22 a night "resort fee" for many amenities you'll never use. If you're in the Honors program, defiantly avoid this location, there are several other properties in the area more business friendly with much better views.
