“Close to St. Pete and airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Good location between Clearwater Beaches and Tampa, close to the Airport and downtown St. Pete. Fairly new property hidden in a business park. No signes coming in from airport so watch the gps and turn right at the no name road. There is a Publix close by with a few restaurants and a movie complex with pleanty to eat and shop on Ulmerton Road. Walk the boardwalk for a great expierience at the lake behind the Hotel. Look for Al E. Gator and his friend Little Al. Two of several alligators on the Carillion Park proptery as well as turtles and tons of birds and fish. Great place to unwind, walk, jog and enjoy the beautiful Florida weather.

The rooms are clean and comfortable except the beds are feeling a little worn. Not as cosy at the beds at the Orlando Hilton, Destination Parkway but good enough. A/C worked excellent and the sheets are crisp and clean. The bath was appointed with large, soft and supple towels and the shower had great water pressure although my wife did not think the water was hot enough. The grounds are the best part of this Hilton. Parking is free and on-site. It is in front of the hotel and very convienient. The Republican fundraiser "special event" caused us to park across the street in a well lit lot, but when we returned from dinner the parking lot had plenty of spaces available. The pool and deck area was clean and the pool has has a lift for folks needing assistance into the water.

Over-all we were very pleased with our stay and have no compalaints except for the intoxicated women who keep insisting to her firend the she was not drunk at 2:00 a.m.

Room Tip: location is north of St. Pete, east of Clearwater and west of Tampa. Very close to clearwater - St...

Since you asked...Room overlooked roof hardware and huge wall. It was adjacent to the hotel staff service elevator and the heavy carts started rumbling off the elevators in the very early am and continued all morning. No need for an alarm here. Unadjustable refrigerater was actually a freezer and ruined my fresh fruits and vegetables. Wifi rarely connected. First impression: employee closing the door in my daughter's face as she was rolling out the luggage cart to our car.

Lively bar. Fun bartenders and great room service food. The burgers and fries were very, very good. The room service breakfast was weak but I heard the breakfast buffet was outstanding. Management was very hospitable and handled all requests professionally.

Although we didn't stay here, we did attend a dinner party at this location. Even though the staff served over 500 meals, the food was delicious, the location nice and the staff incredible kind, helpful and efficient. I was impressed.

We decided to stay halfway to our destination. Looking for something nice but easy to get to. This is right on a river, near but not near enough to hear the highway. Beautiful walkway to run or walk for exercise. Friendly staff. The room walls are pretty thin. I knew when anyone went to the bathroom, who had a cold, and whose marriage needed a vacation. Overall very nice. I will definitely stay here again.

Visiting for Spring Training vacation. Used Hilton honors points for a mini suite. Nice room (lots of space) but did not have a balcony. After our first day here, we asked if there were any mini suites available with a balcony. Wanda at the front desk said one would be available that afternoon. I told her we would be gone all day at the game and then out to dinner so we wouldn't be back until late that evening. She said just pack your bags, leave them in the room and she would make sure everything got transferred to our new room while we were gone. Came back late that night and everything was transferred to our new room. Even everything we had in the fridge! (Which was a lot, mostly alcohol). :-) I thanked Wanda the next day and that's when she told me she personally went to our room to make sure everything had been moved over. Now THAT's customer service. I'm sure not such a big deal by hotel standards, but a very big deal by customer standards. And i travel alot so I am a bit of a hotel snob. Thank you Wanda for taking care of us. It's appreciated more than you know.

Room Tip: Some balconies/rooms face the "fountain", which is actually the fountain in the parking lo...

My wife and I stayed here while on our vacation trip to spring training. We were surprised to see how beautiful the hotel and area around the hotel was since its in the Carillon business park. there is a very nice Eco-sanctuary outside the hotel and there is a nature walk around it which is perfect for walks/runs and sunset strolls. The hotel itself is everything you would expect from Hilton. Very friendly and helpful staff and very clean. The rooms aren't that large but still spacious enough for what you need. We had a king bed and it was very comfortable. We did et at the Luna restaurant which is down in the lobby of the hotel. Luna was terrific. We were seated right away and the food was excellent at decent prices. Overall the hotel was perfect for our stay. You are very close to I275 which takes you up to Clearwater or to Tampa so you're about 20-25 minutes from anything in the Tampa/Clearwater/St Pete area. Prices will beat out others you find but it's worth it.
