I defaulted to staying here (being a Hilton Diamond Member) and stayed 2 nights.

Received an ungraded room (normally happens) and also used the Exec Lounge which was well stocked and spacious.

Ther was quite a good selection on the room service menu and service was prompt.

I will stay here again in a few weeks time and will look forward to my visit.

Our first time in AD and everyone had told us the hotels and service to be outstanding. At the Hilton it was very good, but not "outstanding" in comparison to other hotels I've stayed in. We had a huge suite on 10th Executive Floor, and so enjoyed the complimentary drinks and snacks. Staff here were excellent- only complaint was not enough chairs and tables so unless you get their early, you have to stand (!). Breakfast buffet was excellent but the service needs sorting- fast. The lady who "greets" you, doesn't. She is so surly. The restaurant was full and so she asked us to eat at tables in the reception area, we said we'd prefer to wait for a table to be learned as we could see many. Staff are rushed off their feet so sometimes you waited 5-10 mins just to get a coffee refill. It would be much better to allocate them jobs so the some waited on guests, hilts some cleared. We then heard the restaurant manager having a go at one of the waiters who had been working really hard. Employ more staff! It's not that difficult, but somehow was an issue. I've never experienced such a shambles at breakfast, and travel 6-10 weeks a year. The beach club is what made it, and was stunning. In fact we didn't leave the hotel all week, and just stayed at the beach club. The gym also was excellent with good range and quality of equipment. Would I come back, yes, however I would like to try somewhere else to experience outstanding service. Some of the staff were excellent, but others gave the impression we were a burden, which when you are staying in the most expensive suite in the hotel, is not what you expect.

Room Tip: The extra £ for an executive floor with complimentary drinks and snacks, and wifi in all devices mad...

The hotel is difficult to rate. On the plus side:

- Nice service
- Best beach club in town
- Good breakfast
- Nice reception areas

On the minus side, the room we received even as a diamond member is small with a tiny window (particularly for Abu Dhabi/Dubai standards). Also the bathroom needs renovation, as does the executive lounge.
In total ok value for money.

We stayed here for two nights as a stop over from India back to UK. We didn't plan on seeing the city on this visit as we have done it before. We wanted to relax after a hectic three weeks in India. The Hilton was a superb choice. Although its a slightly older hotel it has been very well maintained. Our room was very spacious and the beds superbly comfortable. Staff were all very attentive. Breakfast buffet excellent. Gym fantastic and pool /leisure area an added bonus. Overall fantastic value for money in a great location.

Stayed mid-December, rooms very comfortable and very well furnished, hotel generally very well kept, nothing much to add. Except perhaps this, if you get a chance to get onto the executive floor, that makes a lot of difference: breakfast, snacks during the day etc and internet access is included, it makes things much easier. Very well run and managed hotel.

Room Tip: There is possible issue with the road noise for the main Corniche Road, so worth asking at check in...

My eight days here have been an absolute blessing. I cannot believe the level of personal service delivered by the staff at the Hilton Abu Dhabi.

Nina, whom is the Executive Lounge manager was the breakfast, lunch and dinner ensuring that my stay was perfect. She was very proactive, and often went above the call of duty to help me.

I certainly want to come back to the UAE, and the Hilton Abu Dhabi will be my only choice, it should be yours too!
