“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Writing this review today as we are to check out tomorrow. We arrived by car Saturday. There was no problem finding the hotel. There were no available parkingspaces outdoor, so we were told to park inside.
The check in staff told us that there were many marriages and conferences at the hotel. The receptionist was polite and told us that we did not get any up grade (Hilton Gold member). The room was in fifth floor and you colud se the beach/ocean. The room a king size bed and a small balcony. The continental breakfast is very good. Overall we find the staff very helpful and attentive.
We had a problem wih our room door which had a doorframe making a large gap in to the hallway. We told the staff at the reception desk and they sent to repair men, but they told us it could not be fixed and told us that we could change room. At the same time we had a problem with our WC which no longer flushed. They looked at this and had to change some parts of the toilette. We spoke with the receptionist who gave us a new room (902) which is a similar room as we had in the fifth floor. The last nights we have been woken up 2-3 times ever night at 2-3 AM as there is Skype or phonecalls going on in the room next door. The door between our rooms is not very sound proof. This is a problem as we are trying to get some sleep.
What we found a bit strange is that the hotel allow people to have breakfast in gym clothes (running shoes or sandals, shorts and trunk tops).
The hotel is nice, and the staff very friendly.

Coming from the Doubletree Orlando airport hotel the night before checking in at Clearwater we don´t se that large difference in the two concepts brands.

Room Tip: Ask for a room without adjacent door to ne the room next door.

Thank you for being our guests and taking the time to write a review. We apologize for the inconveniences you incurred in your initial guest room, and for the distubance you incurred that disrupted your sleeip. Attire in the restaurant is casual, as we are a beach property, as long as proper coverups are worn. Guest feedback is most important to us and we do appreciate your comments.

This hotel is perfectly located right on the beach. It is within walking distance to numerous restaurants, bars etc. I had a car that I only drove from the airport to the hotel. There was no reason to drive anywhere. The location of the hotel was ideal. The rooms are a little dated however my room was clean and comfortable. The beach chairs are quite comfortable and there is a bar located right outside the hotel on the beach. Overall a very nice stay.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the ocean

Absolutely one of our favorites! Turned a business trip into something extra special. Spent our silver wedding anniversary here & also New Years. Couldn't think of a better place -- we are not "crowd" people and prefer quiet & relaxed. Here you can have both. We took lonnng walks along the beach nearly every day. The service was topnotch. Loved being able to have "good" coffee whenever we wanted, thanks to the coffee bar in the lobby. Certainly plan on returning. Soon!

Room Tip: We wanted to see the ocean from our balcony -- you have to be very specific. Also, we wanted a priva...

I was here for 5 days. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. The food at the conference was good. The pools were clean and pretty, and the service was great. I would definitely stay again. Also within walking distance to good restaurants. On the down side, the air conditioning and plumbing were noisy. It was worth it for the beach.

Because we were so disappointed in our accomodations, we were told by a font office hotel staff member and then also by a Hilton, Inc customer relations representative that we would receive compensation by way of a night's refund of points. (Hilton Honors member). We stayed the end of January. To this day (may 3) and even after several attempts to make contact again with them earlier, we have received nothing. Does anyone keep their word anymore? This is ridiculous. They offered the refund to calm our ruffled feathers but never came through on their offer.............imagine that? It is very disheartening to know that wherever you go , you cannot trust anyone, not even those with whom you do business. No wonder companies are losing customers. If you offer something or make a promise, there is no doubt you should make good on it. WE WILL NEVER GO TO THE CLEARWATER HILTON AGAIN!

Room Tip: The higher floors have the best view on the south side of the building. Request a suite (there are...

we just returned home after spending a very relaxing week at this Hilton. It was our third visit in as many years. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary,which was acknowledged by the staff with a bottle of champagne and a fruit and cheese platter. We were also upgraded to a gulf view room.As HHonors diamond we also had complimentary breakfast buffet every morning.The staff there are fabulous, Becky in particular has been with the property for 29 years.The location is fabulous...right on the water, lovely pools, and beach chairs on the beach if that is your preferance. The rooms are not huge,however very clean, and it is my understanding updates are on the way. Location can not be beat....we only took the car out once...as you can walk to several resturaunts,as well as shops.

Room Tip: try to avoid rooms overlooking air conditioners
