I stayed here three times between cruises and really liked this hotel. First time, I was in 2303 in the West Villas with a balcony overlooking the Marina. Second time was in 628 in the Main Tower - a corner room with a wrap around balcony overlooking the bridge and port. Last time was in 3131 in East Villas with view of the pool.
All the employees were so helpful and friendly. I especially appreciated being able to get my rooms when I arrived each time about 10.00am.
Each room had Keurig Coffee makers which was nice. Room 628 had perhaps the best view being on the 6th floor but had a shower instead of a bath tub and did not have a safe. Think I liked the West Villa room the best but that is just my own preference.
Hotel was clean and well maintained. You can catch the water taxi ($20 for all day use) under the bridge. I walked across the bridge to the beach to watch the cruise ships sail out in the evening - a wonderful sight.
Bimini Boatyard Restaurant up the road from the hotel is a very nice place for dinner or drinks. Walgreens is up near there as well.
Wish Hilton had free wifi but I was able to find an open signal up the road.
Taxi from the port to the hotel is a flat rate of $10. From the hotel, taxi uses a meter and it is a bit cheaper depending where the ship docks.
I will certainly be staying here again on my next cruise in November.
