“Loved the staff, will be more fun when they finally get a good ground floor restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Location is fantastic, rooms are great, food is good, prices not crazy. Just assume everything is awesome except maybe two things:

1. concierge service has been lackluster each of the two times we have tried to use them. This last time we asked for a peanut allergy-friendly restaurant, they just gave us a couple possibilities and they phone numbers and told us to call.

2. They end their 'beach service' of providing beach chairs and parasols at 5pm, which is about an hour too early. Every spot they provide was full at 5pm and they had to kick everyone off the chairs. Does that sound like good timing?

Like I said though, everything else about this place is great, especially for families.

Room Tip: Don't worry about getting a room facing away from the ocean, the views to the west are beautiful...

Stayed here before leaving for a cruise in a 1 bedroom ocean view suite. You had to go way out to the corner of the balcony to actually see the ocean view which was kind of disappointing. The rooms were very spacious. The carpet was a little stained which you don't really expect at a hilton. We specifically indicated 3 people during the reservation process but there were no linens in the room for the sofa bed in the living room. When we called down to guest services they sent someone to fix it right away. We had breakfast at the restaurant by the pool and while the food was good the service was horrible. It was a buffet but it took forever to place a drink order and was next to impossible to get refills on our coffee

Room Tip: If you get an ocean view suite I recommend verifying that you can actually see the ocean easily befo...

This is a very nice property located across the street from the beach and within easy walking distance to bars, shops and restaurants. Our big and bright ocean front room provided spectacular views of the beach and pool area below. The service was outstanding, from the front desk staff to the pool attendants and servers in the restaurant. Everyone was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The elevated pool deck located off the 6th floor offers great ocean views, and the hotel restaurant connected to this space was also very good (although a bit overpriced). The only negatives we experienced were 1) the sofa in our room was stained and heavily worn (surprising for a hotel of this caliber), and 2) the pool area was very crowded and we were unable to find chairs on one of the days during our stay. When we reported these items to the front desk staff, both issues were handled effectively, with apologies and offers to mitigate the inconveniences. Overall, the good outweighs the negatives by a wide margin, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms have large balconies. Look for higher floors to reduce noise from the main drag a...

Beautiful location with very nice staff and amenities. All rooms are suites - ours had a full kitchen near the balcony. Great layout. Health club has excellent equipment and overlooks the pool and ocean. Great breakfast options!

This hotel is only 6 years old and has some of the best staff I've ever had. I was concerned by other reviews, but trust me this place is great. The location is perfect for being at the beach, near the shopping and general good fun. The place was originally built as a condo facility, so the rooms we looked at all were roomy and with a kitchen. Its easy to get around by cab or even bus to the shopping and major attractions. Can't wait to return next time we are in Lauderdale. The Spa was wonderful. The food was great, and the ice machine was close to our room. There was no noise from the hallway or floor above, its a very built facility. The pool has a great location on the 6th floor facing the ocean.

Room Tip: The 09 rooms have a great SE exposure. The 06 rooms are bigger but face North.

We just returned after a 5 day stay at the Hilton. I want to say I was a little worried because of some of the other reviews, but I want to say I was quite impressed with the hotel and the staff.
To start the hotel is located across the street from the beach, but they have installed crosswalks and lights, so the easy 50 ft to the beach is no problem. The beach is beautiful, and there was a hilton employee on the beach that was handing out and taking towels. You will have to rent the chairs/umbrella, but the towels are a nice touch.
The swimming pool is very nice with 2 hot tubs and multiple cabannas. The one nice thing was that the staff was there to help seat you and they removed towels that people were not using. This is nice because I did not want to get up early to reserve seats around the pool. There were times that dishes were left and garbage was around the pool, but it seemed the staff was trying to keep the area tidy.
As far as parking, you have to shell out the 35 dollars a day for the valet parking, and there are not really any other options. However, the valet's were always nice, greated us by our name and asked how our day was going. It was really nice because they seemed to take the time to make your experience really nice and make you feel like you are a special customer. It made it much easier to pay for the service, because it was excellent.
The room was very nice, and the houskeeping manager called the first day to find out when we wanted the room cleaned. I thought this was a great service, with 3 children it was always a pain to come home from swimming or the beach and have the room being cleaned. This way we could plan when we were going to the beach and swim and the room was cleaned around our schedule-a definite bonus and a real nice service.
The room was nice and if you upgrade to the full kitchen there is alot of room. The only negatives are that you have to ask for the dishes and pans. They are minimal, but allow you to run to the store a mile away and cook some of your own meals. This is a bonus if you have children, because sometimes going out can be challenging. The only thing that I would add is to have a stocked kitchen was some decent pans/dishes.
Overall, the staff was excellent and everyone seemed to be interested in giving us the best stay possible. I would definatly stay here again and would recommend this hotel.
