My wife & stayed at the middle of March in a King Corner Suite on the 5th floor (I think) overlooking the seaward side of the hotel. We had to insist on the view since they seemed to be pushing the room with a city/dock view - OK but I'm not much for ship spotting.
The room was great - comfortable big bed with soft pillows and towels. The hotel itself was pretty impressive too. A great lobby and really attentive and friendly staff.
The bar was excellent, and even though the prices are high for SL, the place was worth it for the good bar food and pitchers of beer while we watched the rugby in our own seating bay with own tv. About the best bar in Colombo - although I haven't tried them all. The nearby foyer cake shop is amazing and good priced too - be prepared to put on weight.
I would heartily recommend the seafood buffet in the restaurant on the way to the pool (can't remember its name). And the pool itself was great - especially for children with all the inflatables the staff throw in there !!
We also stayed at the Mount Lavinia (see the other review) and the biggest difference was the atmosphere. Mount Lavinia is more "adult" and straightlaced whereas the Hilton is more relaxed with more modern facilities. Both have their merits - but for room comfort it would have to be the Hilton.
