If you are looking for information about the bar, or the pool, or the restaurant at this hotel, I can't help you. I'm sure that the information you seek exists below this entry somewhere. But, if you'd like the opinion of a hardened Road Warrior, a guy who practically lives in hotels - and if getting a good night's sleep...

We would stay here again. The facility is fine-nice older building in good shape. The restaurant is adequate with a seperate bar that was nice. Our room had a view of the water, and seeing the huge ships do a 180 was great. You can easily walk to the down-town.

Nice and close to airport and tons of attractions. Fish fry, straw market, pirate museum and cruise ship market are all must sees. Right on its own private beach you can't beat the location. Great service

We stayed in Nassau for three nights and this hotel was perfect for us. Located in downtown Nassau it's close to the shops, restaurants, bars, and straw market. It has a decent pool and small private beach. Our room was on the ground floor near one of the entrance doors. This made it fairly loud whenever other guests would enter...

Not only for my wife's Birthday, but also for our 5th Anniversary at the place where we had our fantastic wedding ceremony. Although this is probably one of the oldest hotels in Nassau, it is also the most classic and the best in Nassau. The renovations were done very meticulously leaving an excellent entrance and foyer area. The check in...

This hotel is the only option when traveling on business and it's truly a "hit or miss" hotel. I have had 2 decent stays, one thanks to the GM and 2 bad ones. One on occasion, there was no room available for me when I arrived and unfortunately the front desk staff let me know this. Eventually it got sorted....

I stayed at the BC in July also for 14 nights business in a harbour view room which was OK. This time I was given a room on the street side of the building. The air-conditioning made the room uncomfortable to sleep in maybe due to the cooler outdoor temperatures in November. Opening the window let in the noise from...

We stayed for 9 nights. The room was small but adequate. I booked an executive room with marina view. It appears most of the rooms on the floor have great views, unfortunately we got stuck with a partial view. Other than that it was a very positive experience. The staff at this hotel was amazing. Professional, helpful, and friendly. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on downtown Nassau’s only private beach and the site of Old Fort Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas has undergone a multi-million renovation throughout all areas of the hotel, and offers a taste of the island’s rich history, along with some of the most modern amenities for both business and vacation travelers. What’s more the hotel is only 25 minutes from Nassau (Lynden Pindling International) Airport. The hotel is a true Bahamian experience with a marble-tiled lobby and is studded with palm trees under a skylight ceiling. There are 288 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with harbor or island views. All rooms are furnished with tasteful decor, complemented by separate shower and bathtub. One-bedroom suites offer a separate living area with sofa bed, and Executive accommodations are also available along with the Executive Lounge, where attentive hotel staff assures that every need and whim will be met during your stay. Recreational activities are convenient and varied for leisure and business travelers alike. A 300-ft long private white sand beach is furnished with lounge chairs and thatched sunshades overlooking the harbor offering a peaceful and secluded access for an ocean swim or a day in the sun. Use of kayaks and snorkeling gear on the beach is complimentary. Bordered on one side by a tropical garden, the hotel's freshwater pool offers harbor views and has an expansive sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Both the sundeck and beach offer views of cruise ships moored nearby, and of the western tip of Paradise Island, 300 yards offshore. Guests can snooze in hammocks on the lawn adjacent to the pool. The property can also organize trips out reef snorkeling island exploring, boating, golf, tennis and scuba diving. For dining options, Aqua is a fun, casual restaurant serving international favorites with a Caribbean flair, or guests can meet up for cocktails at the Bullion Bar. The new Bullion Bar is the 'place to be seen' for happy hour with great drink specials and tasty snacks. ... more   less
