The staff is very polite, everyone greets you with a "hello" or "good morning". All were efficient and quick to help, and even made my welcome special. The cleaning staff, restaurant staff and bell staff were equally as welcoming making sure i was happy with my stay.

Visited here for second time and was thoroughly impressed. The staff are delightful, friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little small but well appointed and mine had a good harbour view. The lobby is incredible - steeped in history and with amazing indoor giant Palm trees. Executive lounge is excellent, and offers a lovely environment for breakfast.

We were very disappointed with this hotel. We were only in Nassau for one night and arrived tired after a long delayed flight. A 'maid gratuity' had been added to the bill ( we had been informed of this after having booked). An energy cost was added to the bill, we had not been informed of this. The fridge was...

We checked in for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and our stay was perfect. The quality of the hotel and staff was top notch and we felt pampered throughout the experience. There are some great new restaurants in the area within easy walking distance.

We only stayed here 1 night but in hindsight we should have booked more nights here than move around like we did.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on downtown Nassau’s only private beach and the site of Old Fort Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton in the Bahamas has undergone a multi-million renovation throughout all areas of the hotel, and offers a taste of the island’s rich history, along with some of the most modern amenities for both business and vacation travelers. What’s more the hotel is only 25 minutes from Nassau (Lynden Pindling International) Airport. The hotel is a true Bahamian experience with a marble-tiled lobby and is studded with palm trees under a skylight ceiling. There are 288 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with harbor or island views. All rooms are furnished with tasteful decor, complemented by separate shower and bathtub. One-bedroom suites offer a separate living area with sofa bed, and Executive accommodations are also available along with the Executive Lounge, where attentive hotel staff assures that every need and whim will be met during your stay. Recreational activities are convenient and varied for leisure and business travelers alike. A 300-ft long private white sand beach is furnished with lounge chairs and thatched sunshades overlooking the harbor offering a peaceful and secluded access for an ocean swim or a day in the sun. Use of kayaks and snorkeling gear on the beach is complimentary. Bordered on one side by a tropical garden, the hotel's freshwater pool offers harbor views and has an expansive sundeck with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Both the sundeck and beach offer views of cruise ships moored nearby, and of the western tip of Paradise Island, 300 yards offshore. Guests can snooze in hammocks on the lawn adjacent to the pool. The property can also organize trips out reef snorkeling island exploring, boating, golf, tennis and scuba diving. For dining options, Aqua is a fun, casual restaurant serving international favorites with a Caribbean flair, or guests can meet up for cocktails at the Bullion Bar. The new Bullion Bar is the 'place to be seen' for happy hour with great drink specials and tasty snacks. ... more   less
