“Will book again if I visit Clearwater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I liked the hotel and the staff very much, they went the extra mile in order to help.
I went there directly from Orlando airport but my baggage had been delayed in Europe. I asked at the hotel if they knew of any stores where I could buy some clothes but I was too tired to actually go and buy them. The staff had made me a map, circled some stores and left it under more door when I woke up in the morning. Really great!

The only drawback of the hotel is that I often woke up due to sirens (police cars, fire fighters?) and the one of the elevators didn't go to the top floor (nothing happened when I pushed that button, so it was probably a temporary problem)

Pros: professional staff (phone/pools/front desk/valets/restaurant/bars), food and catering (for a hotel), great bed linens, amenities, toiletries, conscientious housekeeping staff. Good conference hotel, close to best local restaurants and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Swimming pools at a nice temp. Didn't use the fitness room, but there were free weights, a couple of treadmills, bikes and ellipticals - adequate.

Cons: This hotel is howing the wear and tear (carpets/furniture) of a hotel that's really busy. Rooms are not very soundproof. We could hear tv's and muffled voices in adjacent rooms while just sitting in our room. We could also hear the plumbing above our room. The heat/cooling system is noisy. We would have left the balcony door open for fresh air at night, but there were no screens.

Not sure whether asking for a 'quiet' room would make a difference, but our stay was still pleasant.

Sure it's an old hotel but the beach, swimming pools, interior and staff are very good. Rooms are the usual Hilton standard and beds are outstanding. Had to walk a couple of blocks for the gym but as it was free, I didn't mind. Could do with an executive floor and lounge though.

Stayed for only two nights, November, 2012. Moved over from Doubletree N. Redington Beach after some problems. No problems at all at the Hilton. Great location to walk to several restaurants, bars, shops. Beautiful beach.
I will return and stay here again.

THIS Hotel says recently renovated???? Perhaps yes...in the lobby, and the restaurant. NOT the room you will stay in. The rooms are VERY small. The website is deceiving. There is apparently ONE penthouse suite and 6 ocean front studio suites and the rest of the rooms are cubby holes. The carpets were stained and put my germ phobia in overdrive. The bathroom was no more than a powder room with a shower/tub thrown in. SQUISHY!!!!!
There was NO special treatment for a Diamond Hilton Honors member. The Reflections restaurant had a red bug in our rolls and ~the omelette maker in the morning was fussy and crabby and impatient and used an obscenity in front of my 11 year old waiting for a fried egg :o(
Will NOT stay in this Hilton again.
The very worst part is... my husband NEVER travels with me so I really wanted this to be special for him. I have stayed in many beautiful Hilton's. Sadly this was the worst.

Room Tip: good luck! I would choose another hotel if you want a good room!

I recently stayed at the Hilton Resort on Clearwater Beach, Florida. Unfortunately, I was there for business and couldn't take full advantage of the resort. It couldn't be in a nicer setting for a vacation. Clearwater Beach is super clean, pretty and easily explored. As a woman walking around by myself, it also felt/seemed safe. There are all sorts of fun things to do within an easy walk. The hotel is well appointed and well maintained. I stayed in a suite that had a stunning view of the coastline curving to the south. The furniture, bedding, amenities were all top notch quality and in excellent condition. Breakfast had nice quality touches- I didn't eat any other meals there so can't comment on that. Heading out to the beach for a morning walk, I noticed that there was a Kids Camp and all sorts of activities available. Whether a couple or family, this is a really nice place to stay that is definitely worth the money.

Checked in on 8th November for a 1 night stay - made to feel very welcome at check in and were offered an upgrade for $20 which we took . Room was excellent , 2 big double beds and a lovely balcony over looking the beach - th hotel is situated right on the beach which is excellent, we spent a few hours wandering up and down the beach waiting for the sun to go down
All in all a lovely hotel with friendly staff !! Go visit !!

Room Tip: We had a roo with a "prtial view of the beach" however we had a great view of the beach
