      Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Longboat Key Beachfront Resort

      Beautiful as always!

      from

      Have vacationed in this area many times & love staying @ the Hilton. This year I found the room to be more than satisfactory, but agree that the bathroom was a bit small Nice lotions, bathrobes, etc. provide. Excellent food & very fast room service--My visit couldn't have been nicer & I look forward to spending time there next year again.

      Great location, Great beach, poor accommodation

      from

      The Hilton is a small hotel in an idyllic location - you can walk (almost) straight onto the beach.

      We visited a year ago and were looking forward to coming back as the hotel was due for refurbishment.

      The Hilton benefits from an intimate atmosphere - the locals use the very rustic pool bar area as a kind of social club.

      Staff were generally helpful, but the restaurant - and more especially the bar staff - only seem interested in closing as early as possible. Bar staff sometimes surly and unhelpful.

      Rooms are large but tired-looking. with very small bathrooms. The Hilton have made much of their re-vamp but the money has not been spent on the bedrooms.

      Pool area is very good - plenty of towels and a reasonable number of loungers but not many umbrellas (so get them early).

      Beach is fabulous with large umbrellas and cabana's available.

      This could be a first class Hotel and would be if the bedrooms especially the bathrooms were of a higher standard. Please remind the bar staff that the brits don't go to bed at 10pm!

      Exceeded Expectations

      from

      This was quite a ride along the key but once I arrived I found a peaceful and wonderful hotel. The room I stayed in (pool view) was very clean and quite spacious. The bed was terrific and I had no problems sleeping as I usually do in hotels. I used the beach and found it to also be wonderful. The hotel provides very comfortable beach lounge chairs at no cost and has someone onsite to assist with jet skis, sailboat and other water sports. There are towels available right at the pool which is right next to the beach. If you are looking for a place to say with easy pool and beach access this is the one. It was also great to have the option of dining outside overlooking the beach and watching the sunset, which is what I did one evening. I would definately recommend this hotel for sun and beach lovers.

      The best time!!

      from

      Just returned from spending three days at the Hilton on Longboat Key. The staff is friendly and the hotel is right on the beach. We arrived late and they kept the restaurant open so that we could enjoy dinner. The food at the restaurant "Latitutes" is very good - and they have an excellent wine list. The rooms are spacious and the suite that we had was wonderful - very clean and the balconies opened up right on the Gulf. A great place to stay if you want a laid back, but more upscale place to visit.

      Laid back elegance

      from

      Great Hotel

      from

      We stayed at this hotel in August 2004.

      The hotel was very clean. The rooms were larger than most hotels on the beach.

      The staff was just oustanding. They really took care of everyone.

      The beach was clean, safe and fun. The ocean was calm most days.

      The room came with a "bounceback" breakfast each day. The scrambled eggs were most likely powered eggs, the potatoes were more like cardboard and the bacon was mostly fat. They could improve this small issue.

      The hotel was easy to access from major roads and it was very close to a major Publix grocery store were one can buy bottled water, soda or custom made quality sandwiches. It really cut vacation costs to buy food there. They even have beach toys for sale.

      There are several good places to each on the island and many majors ones within 5 miles.

      There was an exercise room, a wonderful bar and big screen flat panel Tvs, but the big draw is the ocean. The beach was well worth the trip.

      This hotel is very well kept and it continues to receive upgrades.

      Hilton Longboat Key Beachfront Resort...SUPER!

      from

      I just got back from a vacation stay at this lovely resort. The level of service we received during our stay was of the highest quality in every way! In fact, I can honestly say that I have never been treated so well at any hotel! At check in, we were poured a lovely glass of champagne, and the courtesy, efficiency and friendliness just kept on repeating itself the whole time from the front desk, the wait staff, pool attendant, management, and even engineering. I can hardly wait to go back!

      A very intimate hotel

      from

      We stayed at the Hilton, Longboat Key for five nights in May 2004. The desk staff were friendly and efficient and the rooms very clean. We were upgraded to a two room suite which was beautifully furnished. This is a lovely resport, right on the beach, in a good neighbourhood

      An Oasis of Subtle Decor On The Gulf Coast

      from

      Stayed here in DECEMBER 2003 for two nights. FACILITIES: The hotel's design is very pleasant. The building with the rooms is connected by a covered exterior corridor with the building containing the restaurant and conference rooms, and both buildings form a sort of U-shape (open-end facing the sea) that wraps around the pool area. We were placed in a two-room suite, but I'm not sure if all the rooms are configured that way in the hotel. The interior room configuration was a little inefficient, but it did contain a nice kitchenette and modern-looking furniture. Both rooms in the suite had balconies with view of the Gulf, and it was great to fall asleep to the sound of the surf. The beach is nice, with sand more powdery than grainy in texture.

      Nice turquoise-blue waters. Beach chairs are available at no cost (or at least no one ever approached us about paying to use them, so that's my assumption). The pool is decent, though the lack of a hot tub can make the cool December climate that much cooler. We didn't use any of the bicycle rental or watersport rentals while we were there. Only ate at the hotel for breakfast, and only then because my Hilton HHonors VIP status entitled me to a free continental breakfast (not much here --- just a choice of bagel/croissant/English muffin plus a glass of juice).The north side of the hotel was under major renovation while we were there, which could make it very noisy in the hallways --- e.g.

      drilling noises, hammering, etc. I felt bad for anyone who got stuck with a room on that side, and I certainly hope that hotel didn't actually stick anyone on that side.SERVICE: The service was good enough, and a billing discrepancy was resolved to my liking immediately. NEIGHBORHOOD: The area itself is very nice, and you don't see many of the garish pink stucco and large neon signs that are so common elsewhere along the stretch of the coast from Tampa down to Naples. All I can guess is that there are zoning ordinances that restrict the size of buildings, how prominent commercial buildings can be from the road (the Publix supermarket down the street is practically invisible from behind a thick row of trees, aside from a small sign indicating its presence), and how "loud" commercial signage can be. It all adds up to feeling like you're in a more upscale, affluent, safer neighborhood (which could actually be the case). Good (expensive) shopping about 10 minutes away by car in St. Armand's Key, and much more shopping about 20 minutes away back in Sarasota. Nice seaside eateries about 15 minutes north on Anna Maria Island.SUMMARY: All in all, it's a good hotel if you want to feel secluded and yet have access to the predictable qualities of a brand-name hotel. There are probably cheaper lodging options or more intimate lodging options, but this will all depend on what you're wanting on your trip.

      Great Little Place!

      from

      My husband and I visited there in Jun 02 for 1 night. I called from the car last minute to get a standard room and when I got there I was put into an Oceanfront Suite no charge because they had over booked that particular night! (How lucky was that) It was gorgeous! We had a huge balcony that wrapped around and a sitting area! The grounds were very attractive. This is a small resort but better off that way not too crowded.
