You should know that I am a Hilton Honors member (and Marriott Rewards too). So there's my disclaimer up front.
This is a nice property. We took advantage of a 'family special' which included internet service and a breakfast each morning. If you need internet and you eat breakfast, snag that deal. The hotel staff were excellent. Very courteous, helpful and friendly.
The property is going to closed in July of this year and totally renovated. We were a bit worried by that wondering what we would find. Now that we've been here a few days, we were impressed and very pleased with our selection.
It is, of course, beachfront. The ocean is beautiful and the sun warm (early-mid March). We normally rent beachfront condos, but there were none available for this impulse trip of our's. So, we stayed here and am glad that we did. We would stay here again which is the ultimate compliment for any facility.
Price of the room was $439 plus tax, but again, that included the family package. We found out the breakfast alone was $15 a person had we not purchased the package. I'm guessing the internet is another $10 a day. The extra for the package was $20 a night so it more than paid for itself.
The room we had was a bedroom with queen size bed; desk; flat screen tv; and a little sleeper sofa. In a completely separate room was another queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen tv; and a little refrigerator, microwave and bar sink. The bathroom was in the bedroom side of the suite. If you have teens, they can be on one side while mom and dad are in the bedroom.
- 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.

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.
