Disney's Boardwalk Inn

Pros:

Benefits of staying onsite - Magical Express, FastPass+ advance booking, etc

Location, Location, LOCATION!

Activities at resort for the older kids to have free time

Fun theme

Cons:

Less space than Hilton, and one less bathroom

Accessibility of other parks - Universal/SeaWorld/etc

Haven't been to the Hilton so can't help much with the pros of that one

In addition to extra hours and disney transport, The Boardwalk is a super location for teens. You can walk to Epcot and MGM from both, and if you allow your teens to go it alone they will. (I did - my kids went early and stayed late!) The taxi boats are pretty cool too. I would for sure stay on the Boardwalk. No contest in my mind.
