My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed 4 nights at this property Feb 10-14. Admittedly, we had a few pre-arrival jitters from several other traveler reviews who were less than impressed. We are among the vast majority of guests who were impressed. The staff was great (with special compliments to Denis at the front desk for his outstanding personality and sunny disposition)! The hotel itself was lovely, the room very clean and in good condition, and the grounds were beautiful. About the location... it could not have been better. Longboat Key itself is very laid-back, gorgeous and non-commercial. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this type of vibe unless you are seeking strip centers, convenience stores, souvenir shops, gas stations and the like (all available within 2-3 miles either way of the hotel). This Hilton is surrounded by condos and high-end private residences. Truly lovely. The best part? THE BEACH! Incredible and you have immediate access from the hotel. Perfect! We lucked out with outstanding weather as well (low 80's and sunny). We plan to return every other year, if not yearly. We're rather discerning travelers when it comes to hotels and were so very pleased with our choice. Enjoy your stay if you book this property! We certainly did.
- 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
