My family and myself stayed four nights at the Hilton Pattaya at the end of February.
After a six hour drive from central Thailand, we parked up in the Hilton section of the car park which is shared with the shopping centre. We were greeted by hotel staff who helped us unpack the car and took our suitcases. We were then taken to reception on the 16th floor and quickly shown the facilities before taken to the exec lounge on the 33rd floor to check in. In the lounge we were given cold towels and a glass of guava juice, which was nice after six hours on the road. Check in was completed quickly and we were shown to our room by the person who originally greeted us at reception which was nice. Our suitcases arrived after about five minutes as well as a fruit bowl, which contained six different Thai fruits.
The room was an upgrade to an exec room. It was located on the 32nd floor with an excellent view looking north towards Naklua. The bathroom consisted of separate areas for the bath, shower and toilet. All the standard Hilton amenities were included in the bathroom as well as razor and toothbrushes. As we were travelling with a three year old, it was nice of the hotel to provide a cot, bath and potty for the young one. They also provided slippers, PJ’s, dressing gown and a fun pack for him, which was a nice touch.
After spending a week in the 40 degree heat of central Thailand it was nice to feel the sea breeze sat around the pool. The pool is located on the 16th floor and was a great place to relax. There is a nice shallow area for children and the main pool area is fine for cooling down and having a nice swim.
If you are a Hilton Diamond or upgrade to an exec room you will have access to the exec lounge on the 33rd floor. During the day the lounge offers snacks and soft drinks. On an evening there’s a selection of wines, beers & spirits. There’s also a complementary cocktail menu, which we found a nice touch. They also provided some nice Canapé’s on an evening which they brought to your table. The staff in the exec lounge provided excellent service and were a credit to the hotel.
The location of the hotel is above the central festival shopping centre which is a modern six floor shopping centre in the heart of pattaya. It was hard to imagine you were in the centre of Pattaya with all of the craziness of the city around you. Staying at this hotel you don’t really need leave the grounds. The hotel and shopping centre really do cater for your ever need. There are plenty of food options in the hotel and shopping centre with a 7/11 only a couple of minutes walk.
As a Hilton Diamond, I stay in Hiltons 2/3 nights per week in the UK. I have to say that this property exceeded my expectations. The hotel was spotless and the service provided by all of the staff was outstanding. I really cant say enough about this hotel and am looking forward to my next stay there.
