We stayed at the Hilton Longboat Key for a night over the holidays. The location is wonderful on the beach and close enough to St. Armand's Circle to enjoy but away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. The pool was heated and warm enough to swim in even when the breeze was a bit chilly outside. The staff was very pleasant and courteous. Our room had a great view from the top floor, but it was obvious the room had experienced repeated water leaks in the ceiling and around the sliding glass door. The patch jobs were obvious but some areas hadn't even had patches attempted. We understand this resort is scheduled for renovations in 2013, but this room was not up to what I consider Hilton standards and requires immediate attention.
- 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
