Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing
Travel Blogs from Branson
... large. After lunch we drove down the highway containing most of the tourist attractions but didn’t stop at any. In the historic part of down town Branson we rode the tourist trolley; and then strolled around, going into several stores but buying very little. We did not find any shows that interested us, that were performing today, so we had dinner back at the camper and watched TV.
... tour of the battlefield and surrounding area. Wilson’s Creek played a significant role in the Civil War as it was the first major battle west of the Mississippi River. We enjoyed our short stay here as it was another piece of the amazing yet disturbing puzzle that is the Civil War. Leaving Wilson’s Creek we headed south on US 65 and our next campground in Branson MO.
Driving down the main street to Branson, MO reminded us of 'the strip' in Las Vegas-just with a country music flair. There are many shows here-variety, comedy, gospel music, country music, and magic shows to name a few. Our Lodge is a wonderful respite from the main street-spacious room, beautiful pool and lots of amenities. "Monkey in the middle" and volleyball were ...
... far outside Pea Ridge we passed through the very touristy area of Eureka Springs. It reminded us of Helen, GA but a lot less charm and a lot more redneck. Seemed to be a nice enough place to get away for a few days, but we really didn't see much other than hotels & restaurants. Pea Ridge NMP is a Civil War Battlefield that is an interesting study in how forgetting the fundamentals of battle will get you killed. In addition to driving the loop road we did a 2-2.5 mile hike ...
Only about an hour's drive south to Harrison on 65, which is a nice four-lane highway.
Harrison is a very busy town; larger than anticipated; lots of traffic; streets right up to the curb.
Harrison Village Campground RV Park
Owners are such a nice, helpful couple.
Gravel road and sites, which are very close to each ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing
Fantastic Room and Location
This is best hotel I have stayed at in a long time.
Very modern decor.
We reserved a king condo w/balcony. It was great to see the downtown water show on the lake from the balcony.
Located right on Branson Landing close to all the shopping and restaurants.
There were 2 maids that cleaned the room
Very clean comfortable bed.
LCD T.V.'s in the bedroom and living room.
Very large bathroom with separate shower and Jacuzzi tub.
New hotel, so it was very clean. It smelled very new when you enter the hallway.
Hotel staff was the best.
Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else in Branson
I've stayed at the Hilton Promenade twice within the past three weeks - visiting Branson on business. What a breath of fresh air!
The Hilton Promenade, along with the Landing - a brand new upscale outdoor mall along Lake Taneycomo (really more like a small river), is a tremendous addition to Branson. It is a very nice hotel - no faults, and some surprising pluses. I rated it a "5 star" experience primarily due to the incredible difference between the Hilton Promenade and all other hotels in the area. There simply is no comparison.
1. The staff are very professional and will certainly meet any reasonable and stated need. They are not quite yet at the level of a truly top-flite hotel, in that they don't have that reserved confidence in their service delivery, and are not fully skilled in anticipating guest needs. But they are kind, very welcoming, efficient, and almost falling over one another to help make your stay a good one.
2. The lobby and rooms are very nice. Of course, they are brand new, but they are of a modern style - which is to say open, colorful, quiet, well-lit, and cheery. The rooms are spacious, exceptionally clean, and well appointed. Bed linens are of a high quality and are spotless. Bathrooms are also quite large, showers are huge, and water pressure is very high. Most rooms overlook The Landing, so there is a fair amount of "street noise" until about 10:30p or so at night - but if you have a balcony, it's fun to walk out and look down on the shopping, dancing, and partying that goes on at The Landing. My first stay was in a standard room. My wife joined me for our second stay, and we were in one of their large suites. The suite was about double the price of a regular room (reg. rooms are about $108, the suite was about $220), and had a full kitchen (NOT a kitchenette) separated from a good sized living area by a nice granite bar, a HUGE bathroom with a huge shower and a large garden tub, along with plenty of counter space (larger than most hotel rooms), a large bedroom, and a large balconey - with large patio table, four chairs, and plenty of room to walk around. It struck us as very luxurious. The kitchen was stocked with a full set of pans and cooking utensils, plates, cups, glasses, flatware, napkins, a dishwasher (w/complimentary soap), a full sized refrigerator, a nice quality range/oven, and a large stainless steel sink set in the granite bar. The suite also had a stacked washer/dryer (also w/ complimentary soap & softener).
3. The hotel was right on top of The Landing. All of the nice restaurants and shops in the center are within very easy walking distance (Sullivans Steakhouse - a very high end chain; Famous Dave's BBQ; the Liberty Grill - our favorite; and many more). There is a large Bass Pro Shop store at the south end of the mall, with access to Lake Taneycomo through their very unique bait shop and boat slips.
Much of The Landing is still being developed - although development is on the periphery of the mall and isn't really that obvious. As well, there is a beautiful new convention center, and ANOTHER Hilton Hotel, being built across the street. When those are done, The Landing area will be a shining new testament to the foresight of the leaders and citizens of Branson - who are seeking to advance their tourism business well beyond the current slate of country shows & theme parks.
Unless you really, really want to stay in one of the hotels on the strip, or want to travel all the way to one of the distant resorts on Table Rock Lake, THIS is the place to stay in Branson.
Promenade junior suite memorial day weekend
We booked our room with the help of a very nice young lady named Danielle. She gave us the inside scoop on the rooms with best view and helped us secure a corner room that overlooked the fountains in the square. The room was wonderful, spacious, and comfortable to stay in. The room had a wrap around balcony that my wife and son enjoyed watching the nighttime fountain show and evening entertainment from. Our junior suite had a separate bedroom from the living room. The living room had two comfortable chairs and a pullout sofa that my son enjoyed. The promenade was a great change from the usual Branson hotels and the price was not much more. We were also surprised to find breakfast vouchers under our door for the three days we stayed. The liberty tavern has a great breakfast bar and wonderful menu items. A tip for travelers is the get you're AAA and Hilton honors card. It does help out a lot. I'm a very picky person and rarely do I find myself as pleased with the service, comfort, and atmosphere as I was with the Promenade. Thanks Danielle for your help! You a positive example of what customers expect in guest relations. Conrad...if your reading.....give Danielle a raise...she is outstanding!!
You will love this hotel
Just got back from Memorial Day weekend at Branson Landing. We had a one bedroom suite and It was perfect! I have never been a big fan of Branson but my husband likes it for the golf. The only other place I have stayed at previously and enjoyed there was Chateau on the Lake. We are in our early 30's and found the whole Branson Landing expansion to be a very pleasant surprise. The shopping is higher end than what I have found in the town on my previous visits. The hotel decor is very modern and sleek. We travel a lot and are not the easiest to please guests, but I was more than satisfied with this new hotel. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone planning a trip to this city.
We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hilton Promenade. I can't say enough about the rooms and the service. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. The hotel left a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and a very nice handwritten note congratulating us on our anniversary. We had a King deluxe room that looked out on Lake Taneycomo and the Branson Landing plaza. The bed was very comfortable and was made up with quality bedding and an overabundance of pillows! We didn't have time to use the pool or the fitness room, but both looked very nice.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The prices are very resonable for the quality of the hotel.
Incredible hotel. Great location. My wife and I stayed in a King room, awesome bed, and great bathroom. We didn't have a view of the Branson Landing area, but the view we had wasn't bad. If you are looking to save on parking, take advantage of the free parking 1/2 block down the street outside Belk. It's a public parking area and as long as it is not raining it's a short 2 minute walk to your car. The valet is $12...we used it because it was raining and the guys were great! Haing stayed at the Chaeteau, and several other hotels in Branson, this one tops them all. Make sure you go see the water light show...very romantic setting to enjoy a late evening with your sweetheart! We'll be going back again soon! Thanks Hilton!
The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is by far the best hotel in Branson, MO. Not to say there are not others that are above average, but this has to be the most upscale. Our room was lovely and very clean besides a couple minor complaints I will address later in the review. The bellman and valet parking attendant treated us like royalty, not letting us even lift a finger. They remembered us each time we needed the car and even brought us chocolates! The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was perfectly clean. We had a wonderful view out to the Branson Landing and ordered breakfast in our room (which was absolutely delicious!). The only complaints I had the entire trip were 1.) There was a small stain on the bedding when we entered the room and I did ask housekeeping to change the bedding (after we had used it, I was not being huffy and demanding immediate changing), however they did not change any of the bedding. 2.) nor did they bring us new towels or toilet paper for the bathroom (which I did ask for). Overall, it was an outstanding stay at the Hilton in Branson, be sure to check it out!! We will definitely be returning this summer!
From someone who travels...this is absolutely wonderful
A huge round of applause for the new Branson Landing and the Hilton. My husband and I just returned from our 28th anniversary celebration there. We live about 2 hours drive away, and had been watching the Branson Landing development over the past year or so - and decided to see how it turned out. I booked a room overlooking the fountains (room 413 in the South Tower) which an absolutely perfect location - a drop-dead center seat from the balcony for all the entertainment in the square, and for the hourly fountain dance (which was neat - although noisy - but the hotel was so well built that when the patio door is closed, it is quiet int the room). I mentioned our anniversary at check-in, then after we unpacked we went out for a walk around the Promenade (very good shopping and several good restaurants and a FABULOUS Bass Pro
shop.....it was my first time in a Bass Pro shop and I was fascinated...amazing store...) - when we returned to our room a couple of hours later, we found a bottle of champagne and a note saying "look in your refrigerator".....there we found a plate of beautiful chocolate covered strawberries accompanied by a big bowl of whipped cream......wow! Then we got a card under our door from the management saying Happy Anniversary with a coupon for a free movie...then they told us to take our time and check out whenever we wanted.....in short, we were treated like royalty. I haven't mentioned the room itself - wonderful, spotless, everything is brand new, nice beds, balcony, granite counters everywhere, flat screen tv, HUGE bathroom with marble, Crabtree and Evelyn things..........we have been to Branson many times (we also have traveled all over the US, Europe, the Middle East, parts of Asia.....and the new Hilton in Branson, and the whole Promenade scene, is absolutely tops. In the past we had always opted for either the Chateau on the Lake or Big Cedar Lodge on Branson trips (both great places) but on our next trip, we have agreed we will go straight back to the Hilton. It was one of our best overall hotel experiences, ever. Congratulations, Hilton and Promenade developers, on a truly amazing result.
This should be #1 pick!
We stopped at TripAdvisors #1 and #3 picks with the intent of leaving the Strip and checking out the Hilton which had no reviews as of last Wed. and picking the best. Well, #1 was closed due to open next day and #3 had 3 college basketball teams staying so we asked to see a room at the Hilton. The Bellman was great and showed us two standard rooms, then showed us the Suite that overlooks the Bellagio look alike water display at The Landing Mall. All rooms are new (opened 2/14) all are deluxe. We opted for the standard overlooking the mall, two double beds, refrigerator, coffee maker, complimentary bottles of water, black/gold flecked marble top on dresser/desk combo. Carpet black/beige, each bed had 6 pillows and very contemporary theme of red, tan, black, and white. Furniture gorgeous from the round side table to the comfy red club chair and ottoman, down to the decorative red and black glass vases. Flat screen TV, huge bathroom (one sink) but seperate tub and shower for two. Staff terrific and they have a great restaurant. They do charge for parking but there is a way around that, contact me for advice on this one. Only drawback is walking through the lobby to get to the pool and hot tub. This is just not your standard hotel even by Hilton standards, so splurge (all walk-ins $109.00 plus tax, parking) this is oh so well worth it!
Quiet, Comfortable and Clean
I spent Valentine's Day weekend at the Hilton Promenade. Overall I was satisfied with the look and feel of the hotel. We were led to our room and to our amazement found the room had pillow top beds, huge king size pillows, a flat screen television, fridge, stand up glass shower and a large tub. The rooms was nicely decorated and very business like. The fitness center was state of the art with television monitors on the machines and the swimming pool was very clean. I recommend the Hilton Promenade for business trips, shopping trips to the landing and romantic getaways.
Tip: Watch what you use in your room, movies are rather expensive at $11.99 and internet use is a bit pricey as well. I plan on staying at the Hilton whenever I need a quite retreat from the hustle and bustle of Springfield.
