Just spent a few nights at the Hilton; hadn't been there in almost a decade. I'd forgotten just how magnificent the beach is in front of the hotel. The Hilton is comfortable, with a welcoming staff and enough amenities so that you can enjoy your quick break at the beach. We had one dinner at the hotel and were very pleased with the quality of the food. Our Gulf view room was clean and comfortable, but does show it's wear. The room was the same size as any business hotel, but given that we spent almost no time in the room, it didn't matter. I truly hope the property owners and management will be able to return the same great atmosphere after their upcoming rebuilding and refurbishment. This place is a jewel to be cherished.
- 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
