This Hilton is up-to- the-task in terms of accommodation quality and service.
Good location in the city although there aren't a lot of hot places to go. 2 minute walk to the reef boat docks. Nice boardwalk to run along the water in the morning. And steps away from the casino if that's your thing. For what it's worth, I witnessed, by far, the worst blackjack players I've ever seen at that casino.
Executive lounge (we were pleased to be upgraded as HHonors Gold) is well stocked with great service.
Breakfast buffet was diverse to accommodate many cultures. Slight variations to the offerings each day. Good quality and good service again. I also learned I could order french toast.
Last, but not least, why doesn't anybody talk about the BATS?!?! Each day at around 6pm, thousands of bats (think big, Halloween-looking bats) fill the sky as they come from areas in the city across the harbor into the trees on the other side. At first we were freaked out, but the second day, we looked forward to the surreal experience. Not a Hilton sponsored show, but they should promote it anyway - very memorable!
