The Hilton at Longboat Key is a charming hotel with all the Hilton qualities. BUT you better go soon because it is scheduled to be closed & gutted May of 2013. Currently it is arranged wonderfully with a large open area for the pool & boardwalks to the lobby & the restaurant/bar from the room area. Few rooms actually face the gulf, but if you get a pool view on the 4th or 5th floor you will be able to see the gulf. The beach is great with a lot of shells & room for long walks (more than a mile in each direction). The hotel furnishes lounges on the beach & an umbrella can be rented for $15/day. The double rooms are roomy with a nice size fridge (no microwave, though). The staff is extremely friendly & helpful. There is a free shuttle to St. Armand's Circle. You don't want to try to park there, so take the shuttle on your schedule.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hilton Longboat Key is nestled among ancient Banyan trees on the picturesque island of Longboat Key, just off the coast of Bradenton and Sarasota. A 102-room boutique-size property, the Hilton Longboat Key is the kind of place that you come to for a relaxing vacation where you dig your toes in the powdery-white sand and sip on tropical drinks while you watch dolphins and manatees swim by. Just 8 miles South on Lido Key, the 100 shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle will satisfy the shopaholic in you, as well as your cravings for fresh seafood, frozen drinks and upscale fare. The water rules here, and there is plenty to do to become one with our island lifestyle --- you can rent jet skis and sailboats right out on our beach, or take a kayak nature tour through the mangroves on Lido Key. Our team invites you to relax and enjoy all that the Longboat Key area has to offer. ... more less
