The Bilmar was better than expected, based on brochures. The key positives: exceptional rooms, hotel decor and palm gardens, warm pool and hot tubs, -- staff are everywhere taking care of every detail re gardens, cleanliness, you know you are somewhere different. Then on top of this is the exceptional customer service based on the attitudes of staff. Thank you. The boardwalk right outside is well populated with morning walkers, etc...and you will see why, this is about a 1.5 mile boardwalk. now the beach --- hmmm, 150 meters or so of well manicured white sand and shells lead you to the ocean (but it was 66 degrees in February). stay in the heated pool! Food was great in the breakfeast diner below, and the staff always delightful. Nice also to have several eateries and convenience stores (24 hrs) right across the street from the front entrance. CONS: Since we were doing pleasure and business north in Palm Harbor/Tarpon Springs, it is 30+ miles to drive and about an hour or so. I might have asked for shortcuts. The message is be prepared fior long drive if visiting the north side , for example Tarpon springs or Honey moon beach park. All said, we have no hesitation to return to the Bilmar. This is very likely your best bet on the Treasure Island strip.
