    Pleasantly surprised

    My wife and I stayed at the Hilton for a few nights as a combined trip to Nassau along with a few nights at an all-inclusive resort. The idea was that we would check out downtown Nassau for a few days while staying at the Hilton and then get on with the better part of the trip at the other resort. To my surprise, the stay at the Hilton turned out to be the better part of the trip. When we travel, it’s really all about location and, for visiting downtown Nassau, there simply is no better place than the Hilton. Everywhere you would want to wander in Nassau is within walking distance. The hotel has a stately feel to it inside with a beautifully maintained garden area that leads to the pool and beach. I was a little tentative about staying in an area so close to the cruise ship pier. But the beach was clean, well maintained, very private, and the water was beautiful. There is no way to get to the beach other than through the hotel, so it always felt very private to us. I was told that the hotel was full, but it never seemed that way. We never experienced any of the resort-style competition for chairs. There were plenty, even with a few folks visiting from the cruise ships. It was fun watching the huge cruise ships come and go, especially when sunset was near. There was a little construction noise from the resort being built next door, but I think the noisiest part of the construction is mostly over. When we checked in we were told that we could not get the ocean view room for every night we had booked. They gave us a suite instead. For the most part, everything was updated and maintained nicely. The maid service was fantastic – prompt, thorough, and very accommodating. As for the other facilities on the resort, the gym was good, if a little cramped. The pool area was inviting. It was mostly used by families when we stayed there. The outside bar area is nice, and you can order from your beach chair if you want, but the staff don't bother you too much when you're relaxing. The breakfast buffet was very nice. We got it comped due to gold member status. If paying for it, you might find it a bit pricey. With tip included, the buffet breakfast for two people came to over $60. As an alternative, there’s a coffee shop with some lighter and less expensive offerings. Or, you could probably just walk to someplace nearby. We didn't eat dinner on the property, so I can't comment on that. It's worth spending a few minutes in the inside bar - very stately decor. The service was outstanding. Everyone we met – the front desk, maid, porters, concierge, restaurant staff, bar tenders – all were pleasant and helpful. They truly seemed interested in making sure customers were happy. Yes, the hotel could use some general renovations here and there, but I wasn't put-off by anything in particular. Not only would I recommend staying here, but we plan to return some day.

    Nola Boy Diving in Nassau

    I have stayed at Hilton's all over...the food and beverage needs to be addressed with a little common sense. I left the hotel and walked down Junkanoo Beach for the price of drinks and eat most all my meals elsewhere. If they would lower the prices a little people would stay. I like the Hilton location!

    British Colonial Hilton Hotel

    Nice hotel with great location. Rooms need to be updated as well as pool area. But the view of the cruise ships is spectacular and it was so convenient to downtown. VAT tax on everything which drove up the bill. Total bill was $15% more than quoted in my reservation.

    Good but....

    Hotel is in need of a general renovation. Carpet is old and torn in many areas. Many paint scratches throughout the hotel. Hotel needs to extend outdoor bar later than 6 pm. The lobby bar is not very inviting...too sterile.

    Say ‘hello’ to Phillip if you go

    We stayed at the Hilton on a recent visit to Nassau for 7 nights. It was a good hotel and for us in a great location. We were close to many restaurants and bars and had a great view of the harbor to watch the cruise ships come in. We went to the hotel bar for soup du jour and some drinks from the nicest bartender, Phillip. We thought about an all inclusive but then opted for the flexibility of feeling like we could go out and try different places. We really enjoyed our stay. It definitely seemed as though the hours of operation for restaurants around town revolved around the cruise ship schedule so just something to keep in mind.
