“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Booked this hotel last minute and got a really good deal, around 80 pounds sterling per night, didn't have breakfast there as there is a Starbucks within 5 mins walk and it's far cheaper. The room was a standard double on 2nd floor at front of building so no great view, but we were there to sleep and enjoy the surrounds of St Pete's and Clearwater so that wasn't important to us. The room was very clean (anyone reading my previous reviews will know cleanliness is massively important to me) and spacious. Not terribly quiet but that was due to noisy children running in the corridors outside of the room, not from adjoining rooms. Housekeeping was very good. We ate in the Lunar bar twice, firstly because the bartender, Lynda I believe her name to be, was incredibly welcoming, and secondly the food was really very good. I have eaten at Hilton hotels in the UK and the food we were served in Hilton Carillon made the UK Hiltons seem like a Toby Carvery. Whilst it wasn't cheap, it was reasonably priced, $10 for a large chicken salad which was delightful. They have a happy hour at the bar until 7pm which made a glass of very drinkable house Merlot priced at a bargain $3. Other than the bar tender in Lunar, and a very efficient 5min check in, we didn't have contact with staff but they always greeted you with a smile any hour of the day. We also used the onsite gym, a good range of equipment, quiet at the times we visited, around 8am on all days. Nice bright and clean with good air con, water and towels. And at the back of the hotel there is a nice pool, with access out to a small nature reserve with a lake and boardwalk which we took a stroll through in the warm evening sun, saw plenty of wildlife to see, really quite relaxing. I'd strongly recommend this hotel if you are just looking for a base to travel from or are in the area on business. Forgot to mention the free WiFi and free onsite car park...what else do you need?!

Room Tip: Try and get a room that overlooks the lake

We arrived late in the evening tired and ready to relax.

Check in was fast and we were told that we had access to the executive lounge. We went to our room and then called to find out where the lounge was located. We attempted to access the lounge but our keys did not works. We had to go back down to the front desk and have them fix it. Once we had access to the lounge, we found out that all the drinks (sodas and water) and snacks had been wiped out by the full house. Instead of saying anything, we decided to hit the bar in lobby called Luna. We enjoyed some cocktails and then brought some drinks back up to our room. The bed was very comfortable. I was surprise to find that there was no toilet paper holder in the bathroom. The roll was just sitting on the shelf.

Breakfast in the executive lounge was very good. There had eggs, huge link sausage, bacon, oatmeal, all types of fresh and dried fruit, and even a latte machine. The hostess was friendly and provided a means to bring the food back to the room.

We would go back again.

You can never go wrong with Hilton! These guys know about customer service! Even though they are required to wear those stuffy looking suits they are quite personable and friendly!
Matt was great with suggestions for dinner both nights we were there.
If I could change anything it would have been to have more space at the pool, it seemed a little small for the size of hotel, but we made it work.

Good location between Clearwater Beaches and Tampa, close to the Airport and downtown St. Pete. Fairly new property hidden in a business park. No signes coming in from airport so watch the gps and turn right at the no name road. There is a Publix close by with a few restaurants and a movie complex with pleanty to eat and shop on Ulmerton Road. Walk the boardwalk for a great expierience at the lake behind the Hotel. Look for Al E. Gator and his friend Little Al. Two of several alligators on the Carillion Park proptery as well as turtles and tons of birds and fish. Great place to unwind, walk, jog and enjoy the beautiful Florida weather.

The rooms are clean and comfortable except the beds are feeling a little worn. Not as cosy at the beds at the Orlando Hilton, Destination Parkway but good enough. A/C worked excellent and the sheets are crisp and clean. The bath was appointed with large, soft and supple towels and the shower had great water pressure although my wife did not think the water was hot enough. The grounds are the best part of this Hilton. Parking is free and on-site. It is in front of the hotel and very convienient. The Republican fundraiser "special event" caused us to park across the street in a well lit lot, but when we returned from dinner the parking lot had plenty of spaces available. The pool and deck area was clean and the pool has has a lift for folks needing assistance into the water.

Over-all we were very pleased with our stay and have no compalaints except for the intoxicated women who keep insisting to her firend the she was not drunk at 2:00 a.m.

Room Tip: location is north of St. Pete, east of Clearwater and west of Tampa. Very close to clearwater - St...

Since you asked...Room overlooked roof hardware and huge wall. It was adjacent to the hotel staff service elevator and the heavy carts started rumbling off the elevators in the very early am and continued all morning. No need for an alarm here. Unadjustable refrigerater was actually a freezer and ruined my fresh fruits and vegetables. Wifi rarely connected. First impression: employee closing the door in my daughter's face as she was rolling out the luggage cart to our car.

Lively bar. Fun bartenders and great room service food. The burgers and fries were very, very good. The room service breakfast was weak but I heard the breakfast buffet was outstanding. Management was very hospitable and handled all requests professionally.

Although we didn't stay here, we did attend a dinner party at this location. Even though the staff served over 500 meals, the food was delicious, the location nice and the staff incredible kind, helpful and efficient. I was impressed.
