We really enjoyed this hotel... it's about as on the beach as any hotel with a crosswalk close by to get across busy Seawall Blvd. The Rainforest Cafe is next door and it looked really cool. Has a volcano!
Check-in was smooth at 7:45 after a really bad drive down 45 from Houston... DON'T do this drive on a Friday evening after work. Just don't. Room was 2nd floor with ocean view...next time I would probably spend the extra $$ for a balcony. Definitely for a higher floor. But it was fine for less than 24 hours. Bathroom was great... they believe in giving a girl room to work with her glamourizing tools and it's appreciated. Beds were fine, things appeared clean.
On the down side...Hilton hotels proper are irritating because they charge for almost everything or make it more difficult to travel. Small fridge, more hooks to hang wet things on, free wi-fi (especially for HHonors of ALL levels), breakfast would be helpful. They're already more expensive than their other brands like Hampton, Garden and even Embassy Suites, how about a few freebies?
Great pool here...the boys really loved it. All in all a great few hours and we would probably stay here again.
