... not afraid but this trooper braved an entrance to the house, which made him sneakier than the rest. I went in the bedroom with Jessica so I wouldn’t be alone with the lizard in the other room. She begged me to catch him but sadly my lizard catching days were over. I sat at the edge of the bed and crossed my legs to better hold my bladder, in fear walking past the kitchen to the bathroom he may launch his rugged body in my hair, or even ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Longboat Key Beachfront Resort
Beautiful as always!
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.
The Hilton is a small hotel in an idyllic location - you can walk (almost) straight onto the beach.
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!!
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.

Hilton Longboat Key Beachfront Resort...SUPER!
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
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
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.
Great Little Place!
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.
