“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed March 16, 2011

Was very impressed. Stayed on 8th floor. Room was very clean, bright with beautiful view of harbor. Bathroom was spotless; plenty of towels and soaps, shampoo, etc. Even hair dryer. Nice roomy closet for storage. Flat-screen Cable TV with plenty of local New Brunswick and US channels.
Very convenient to Downtown Saint John, easy walk to numerous pubs and restuarants.

Only drawback were the elevators...very slow; but then, the place was nearly booked full with a Regional Hockey Tournament going on that weekend, so lots of people there.

Parking is convenient in adjacent parking garage, but was $20 extra.

All in all, a great visit; and prices not at all unreasonable.

My friends and I decided on a random weekend road-trip to Saint John, NB, for the Family Day long weekend. Upon arrival to the city, we drove around to see what hotels we could find in the Uptown area. Upon seeing the Hilton's proximity to the harbor, we pulled up and secured an awesome deal for two nights. We found the rooms to be very clean and everything in working order. The view of the Harbor was exceptional and the flat-screen was perfect for pre-drinking sessions prior to heading out. As a smoker, i enjoyed the fact that windows open up as well. I know some reviews here mention the quality of the food however we avoided their menu based on the pricing and the fact that there is an entire local economy to support. Many restaurants and pubs within walking distance and we greatly enjoyed eating around town.

When in Saint John, I'll certainly be staying in this hotel again due to the location and quality.

In January 2011, I made accommodation at the Hilton Saint John. I had last stayed at this hotel seven years ago and since then, the hotel has received remodelling inside and out. In my opinion, the hotel remains one of the best accommodations in the city as it is located in the uptown area and many of the rooms overlook the harbour. The room is a typical hotel room though the newer décor gives the room a “modern/trendy” feel with the use of dark woods and draperies. A clean bed offers a very nice sleep with plenty of non-allergenic feather pillows and a thick, warm duvet. The hotel offers in-room internet access and features a good size flat screen television. Each room has an in-room safe, iron & iron board and coffee maker. The bathroom is bright and most of the fixtures are new. The bathroom in my room did not offer a hair dryer. However, despite the attempts to modernize the rooms, there is décor left over from the old room design, such as Stucco ceiling and outdated shower controls. Regardless, the room was very clean and comfortable. With onsite amenities: guest can park their car in the underground parking, a recommendation during winter months. The hotel offers a fitness room though it may be tight during peak times. The hotel is one of two hotels situated on the Pedwalk System, which means guest can walk miles without ever having to step outdoors. Also, on the Pedwalk System are countless shops and restaurants as well as Harbour Station, the New Brunswick Museum, the Saint John Regional Library and, perhaps the city’s best attraction, the City Market. In the end, the Hilton Saint John is clean and centrally located, and one of the best choices in the City of Saint John.

We had a great New Year's Eve stay at the Hilton, our first time there. We had a tasteful, spacious and quiet room in which to bring in the new year.

My wife and I always look for hotels that have an indoor pool AND a hot tub. Hilton advertises a hot tub, has pictures of it, but it's literally boarded up in the pool area. The pool was small but warm. We had a great swim but were disappointed by the lack of hot tub. The hotel should update the picture of their pool area and not advertise it as an ammenity.

The hotel brags that it has been renovated, which it has but only certain feature still the room wasclean and big and the bed comfy, but the main reason for this review is to warn people off eating dinner there. The dining room is closed but it's menu is available in the bar. Our starter chowder arrived cold and more like a bowl of cream than chowder, we sent it back and replaced it with a so called vegatable soup, which arrived also cold, we calle dtha manager who said he would personally take care of the issue and went to the kitchen, the next soup arrived hot but contained no vegatables, only liquid fortified with blended vegatables. We gave up on the soup and moved on to chicken wings which came to us very quickly, so quick in fact they didn't have time to cook them, they were still bloody inside. We asked for the manager again but he wasn't around so we just provided a room number and walked out - the manager never contacted us and we ended up in a bar with a pub meal - so be warned

We must have had the best room in the hotel. We were on thevClub floor, Harbor niew; renovated clean, We asked for a fridge an they brought one up, no charge. Breakfast buffet is worth it. Everyone is ready to make your stay pleasant.
I was kind of nervous after reading some reviews here, but very happy with our choice.

Had a Harbor view room that was newly remodeled. We could see the cruise ships dock right outside our window. Breakfast buffet was very good and the front desk was very helpful with directions etc. Within walking distance to many redstaurants.
