“Wedding Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband and I had our wedding here in March 2013. It was an incredible experience. From the front desk to the food to the pool to our honeymoon suite, every part of our experience was amazing. My girlfriends and me had my bachelorette party here also and the staff and accommodations were amazing! I can not say enough positive things about this hotel and I will not stay anywhere else in Pensacola!

Glad to hear you and your friends had a great time with us on this trip. We have quite a few weddings here at our hotel since we are right on the beach. Hope to see you back real soon.

I wrote a review several moths ago about this hotel and the terrible experience my boyfriend and I had had. After the review was posted I was contacted by the general manager. She emailed me and expressed her apologies and offered us a free stay for our next trip. I explained to her that we had spent over $2000 for our airfare and wouldn't be able to do so again for quite some time. In response to that she fully refunded us for our stay. While our initial trip there was less than satisfying, I would be willing to give them another try. It was nice that she was willing and able to do that for us and it was greatly appreciated. When you go on vacation you truly hope that they get it right on the first try, but it is nice to know that in this instance they were willing to make another attempt.

While I was there on business the hotel is a good Gulf Coast location that due to the smaller nature of Pensacola Beach can give you a more relaxed beach getaway over the like of Panama City Beach. The hotel itself can be merely average or great, The lobby dining options and pool/beach are excellent. Note though the hotel is actually two buildings the main lobby is the location of the original building and the rooms in this area while redecorated are older and not as nice as the high rise addition that is attached. The older section also seems to have merely adequate shower water pressure. I have experienced that in multiple rooms in that section. It might be a problem washing the sand off of you.

Room Tip: request a room in the newer high rise addition.

Loved the new Lobby concept! The pool & bar area was just perfect for our vacation. Easy walking distance to local eateries and shopping. Being just steps from the ocean made for a great weekend away.

We visited here last year and my son talks about it all the time. He repeatedly ask, "Can we go back to Pensacola?" The hotel is very well maintained. The bar and restaurant both serve good food.
We will definitely visit again!

You enter this beautiful Hilton Hotel with a great big smile on your face, because of the beautiful grand lobby. Service was outstanding and the room was very comfortable with a gorgerous view from your balcony over looking the two big pools and hot tub and the oceans emerald water. The smell of the salt air and the breeze off the ocean begins to release all the tension that you brought with you.

First of all, this property appears ideal for a vacation on Pensacola beach. The location is perfect; on the beach and directly across shops and the bay. This being a business trip and the venue being chosen by my office there was little time to explore and enjoy all that the hotel offered. The front desk and restaurent staff was friendly and breakfast buffet is great. For a Hilton, the poor housekeeping which for some reason was limited to tidying the room, was very disappointing. I had to walk to the front desk to get tea every morning, towels were not replaced and neither were toiletries. As a Hilton Honors member and frequent visitor to lower priced Homewood and Hampton hotels, this is the first time, I have experienced such poor service despite reminders to front desk.
