“The Staff: Fantastique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2009

...not to mention the hotel itself and its amazing location right on the beach and next-door to the Pier. What a package! From the servers in the restaurants to the front-desk staff to the wonderful ladies who refresh your room each day to the Executive Assistant who greeted me warmly each morning in the lobby, this Hilton has it all.

My room was very comfortable (the extra-large flat-panel TV didn't hurt a bit either) with classy amenities (Crabtree & Evelyn) and a welcoming feel each time I returned to my 9th-floor aerie.

Each morning I would descend to the dining room to have a delicious buffet breakfast watched over by attentive and friendly servers who brought amazingly delicious coffee in my own carafe--what a way to start my day!

Are you getting the idea that I thoroughly enjoyed my 5-day stay? Was it worth the cost? Absolutely! A great vacation experience made all the more enjoyable by the genuine warmth of each and every staff member. I'll return for more...

This is our second stay in this hotel. The inside has been completely updated just not as nice as the others on the outside. This was a beautiful hotel with excellent staff which accomodated us from our point of arrival. We were upgraded for free to a beautiful upgraded room. We got this hotel for $160 per night plus an extra 15% off through hotels.com. The hotel is right on the beach offering a pool with food and bar service, any type of rentals you could want for water activities, swim classes, the bar area even had family games to play while we snacked during the short rain storm. Our stay couldn't have been better, we walked to everything....didn't move our car once. We ate at Crabby Bill's which was great, and at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill. We also had a great experience dining inside the bar area of the hotel. The drinks are better inside than at the outside bar in my opinion. The beach water was amazingly warm and blue/green.....we didn't want to leave! Check restaurant.com before you leave to print out coupons.....when can find promo codes to get $25 gift certificates for $2...well worth it. If you decide later than you would like to stay an extra day, it will cost you....we contemplated an extra day at this hotel and found out that an extra night would have been $350 plus taxes and fees. The front desk had never heard of someone getting that hotel for less than $160 per night....but you can't go wrong with a Hilton....we love them. There was a charge of about $5 per day for parking and we were able to use the luggage dollies, unlike another person who reviewed this hotel. There was also a little street noice, but it was minimal....there is no free internet access, but there was a media center...the connection was a bit slow and there were only a couple of computers...so we had to wait a bit....but overall, we had a great experience.

if your looking for a relaxing enjoyable place on the beach this is not the place.. I have stayed in florida many times. It is overpriced the rooms are small. the food prices are way too much, the service is mediocre. The rooms are small and do not pay extra for harbour view. Ours looked out at the harbour which was about 3 blocks away and faced a side street. We ere on the 9th floor and you couldnt sit on the balcony beacause it was cemented half way up and if you sat all you saw was cement. They cater to conferences and if your a vactioner ypur pretty much not even noticed. The beash and water are nice but it is a hike to get there.

First, let me say the hotel desk staff was superb here. We were able to call ahead and get an upgraded room for free prior to check in time. They were helpful and courteous at both check in and out.

The rooms are small (sardine can small) and badly in need of updating. Our room looked visibly clean but the floors were very dirty. White socks were dirty within minutes. The overall tone was dingy and musty smelling.
Bathrooms were very tiny, only a sliding frosted door (no lock) for privacy. Bathroom drains barely worked, toilet seat did not stay up for use.
A/C units are very loud, though I did not mind because it drowned out other guests and the white noise assisted in my children's sleeping.

Housekeeping first night was done by 11am. Second night, after 5pm.

Restaurant service at the Tiki Bar and Reflections restaurants were poor. The Tiki Bar waitress left us for over an hour and the Reflections waitress did not remember requests for water, meals, etc. The food was very good at Reflections, though.

Beach access is superb, short walk, free towels, though you sign them out. Keep an eye on them. Within 5 minutes of placing them on a chair, someone took them. If you don't return them, you are charged $10/towel. Beach and valet staff, very nice and courteous.

Parking not a problem, right next to playground and Pier 60.

We have stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key and rooms were much nicer, spacious and less expensive. The Sandpearl offers comparable rooms at a much newer, nicer location just a block down the street, too.

This hotel was excellent! It is located right on the beach, just walk out the breezeway and there sits the beach...en route is a little tiki bar (try the margarita). Perfect location to everything! Great restaurant's and shopping right across the street. Every evening there are arts, crafts, etc. at Pier 60, again, right in the Hilton's back yard.
The hotel staff were very knowledgeable to what the city had to offer and were able to give good directions, they were always available and willing to help everyone, even when a line was forming, there were enough people present to be quick yet efficient. Valet parking was excellent, too.

Pros:The main attraction of this hotel is the location directly on the beach. From the guest rooms you can be on the beach in minutes. I was suprised how wide the Clearwater beach is and there is plenty of rooom for all types of beach activities. The hotel is located near Pier 60 which has vendors, snack shops, and playgrounds. A number of restaurants can be found within walking distance. The room price for beachfront hotel was very reasonable.
Cons:The rooms provide shelter and not much more. If traveling with children a normal-sized guest room will give you cabin fever. Finding a parking spot in the front lot or garage can be an issue. I had to checkout 1night earlier than my reservation and the guest services agent informed me of an early checkout fee that was later waived.

Great hotel, great location, only problem was being put onto 4th floor next to the restaurant a/c units, they droned on all night as well, and bearing in mind it was high 80's through the night, it got a little wearing. To be honest i should have asked for a move when the problem became apparent.

Staff very friendly, rooms very good, lovely 3 days had in clearwater.

Only issue i would bring up was the amount of boarded up or closed shops and eating houses close to the hotel. Made night time eating a bit restricted, unless we wanted to travel.

You must go on a dolphin sightseeing tour, good value on Little Toot, just a couple of minutes from hotel reception.
