I am active duty military and got a room here because it is close to the airport and we are transferring to Japan. I took some of our clothes down to the front desk and ask them if there is any deal that the hotel can do to get my laundry done before we leave the next day. he brought out some paper and said that we can do it for $25.00 since it is not dry cleaning. I asked him if it would cost extra for same day, he said nope, we can do it for $25.00. well I should have known it was a lie and should have listen to my wife. he held to his promise to get my clothes back on the same day but what he did not hold truth to was the $25.00. we got a bill for $357.25. WTF!!! Took the bill to the front desk and spoke with 3 managers and they said since it is a 3rd party there is nothing that they can do and that it is not a $25.00 charge for bulk laundry but a $25.00 extra charge. I tried to get some of my money back but it was to no success... Now I am in a room for one more night with a very pissed off wife and I just hope that I wake up tomorrow to get on our flight. We will never be staying at the Hilton at Harbor Island again. I will also pass to all my military friends and families that we know that to never stay here either!!

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is ideally placed if you want somewhere away from the hubbub of downtown, with amazing views of the marina or harbour Our room on the 7th floor was very bright and very clean. With the Covid seal sticker on the door, along with antibac wipe and gel in the room. TV remote was in a bag. The lifts are the only slow challenge, one family per go, you can wait a while! however there is always the stairs. Hand sanitizer pumps are everywhere! We went onto the terrace for a cold drink and a bite to eat and it was superb, the staff are all kind, considerate and caring. All very clean too. Parking is plentiful and safe. There is a path outside that edges the island, I think its 1.2 miles it length so a great place to stretch your legs and Tom Hams Lighthouse restaurant is a mere 5 min stroll away. So Happy Happy days . Loved it and will be staying again v v soon ( next weekend in fact)

I just stayed two nights while in the area for business. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. The restaurant is good, but they changed the menu and eliminated two of the reasons I choose this hotel; Parmesan fries & short rib sliders. Please bring them back!! The hotel still offers an airport shuttle which is extremely helpful. Overall, a great stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Hilton for two nights. While I understand adjustments due to Covid restrictions, it seems that hotels are using that as an excuse to charge more and provide reduced services. This hotel is no exception. At 5pm the second night, I went to the front desk to ask why our room had not been "made up". They asked if I had requested service. I asked how I would know that I needed to request service. They pointed to a printed piece of paper taped to the check-in counter. I said that I had checked in via the Hilton App as suggested and never had contact with anyone at the hotel. They did apologize and had the room "serviced" while we went to dinner. The service consisted of 3 decaf coffee packets (I wanted regular) and a towel. They didn't even empty the trash. The room was nice and the view was wonderful. Parking is $25 a night which seems a little steep for a location far away from downtown. Hot tub is closed (presumably a Covid rule) and the elevators are not Covid friendly. (Meaning, if someone is already on the elevator, the hotel wants you to wait for an empty car. That could take a long time since the full car still stops at every floor asking for an elevator). We would stay there again, but might wait until social distancing is no longer a thing.

We were able to take advantage of early check in, and were happily greeted by Perla at reception. She was very kind and had the Hilton “We are Happy to See you” spirit. Our room was on the 8th floor with a nice view of the Marina and bay. One of the great benefits offered by this property is “the view”, so try to take advantage of it with a higher floor. You have a Marina view, or a Harbor view (some have both). If you like looking at ships (including Navy) as well as a view of the downtown skyline, then opt for Harbor view. If you like looking at yachts and other small boats, get the marina view. The room had the sanitized seal on the door before entry. The room was very clean, including coffee maker, tv remote control was in plastic, carpet was clean, bathroom was clean. Nice large bath towels, hot water came on fast, and had all the usual Hilton Amenities (except for a pen and pad). Room had a large LG flat screen TV along with a nice selection of cable stations. Internet was fast enough to run Roku or your laptop. AC was efficient and quiet, and bed was very comfortable (Hilton Signature Bed) as were the pillows. The Hilton Restaurant (Panorama Bar and Grill) had both indoor and outdoor seating and service. We had lunch at the hotel with a wonderful view of the Marina and were provided excellent service by Sergio and Miguel. I decided to have a Hamburger (which I rarely have), and it was great! We also had breakfast at the hotel and once again had great service provided by Brian, and a very nice breakfast. The Property is close to Airport and downtown, but strategically situation to have that full “Vacation” feeling. With the windows closed you do not hear aircraft noise. You are within walking distance of Tom Hams Lighthouse Restaurant (5-minute walk), and a very nice walking path along the shore (you can easily walk up to about 5 miles along the shore). They also have kayak, and other water rentals close to hotel (not part of the hotel). Another unique benefit of this property is the adjacent Yacht Club, with their morning Star Spangled Banner presentation, as well as assorted tunes throughout the day that really added to the decorum and festivities while enjoying the view from your balcony. Everyone we saw on the balconies really enjoyed the view, the tranquility of the bay, and the occasional unique tunes emanating from the Yacht club. If you are looking for a quick getaway that has that “far away vacation feel”, but is close to the airport (they have a shuttle from hotel to airport), as well as a quick drive to various tourist attractions across the bay. Then this is the hotel for you! We liked our stay so much, we plan to visit this property again for a couple of days.
