“Lovely Hotel! Definitely Worth Staying Again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

The Hilton Clearwater Beach Hotel was a delightful stay! It is right next door to the beach so not far to go at all. They have a lovely buffet there which is open in the morning for breakfast and in the evening for dinner. The gift shop they have is really nice and the people that worked there are very polite and seem to really like children. The hotel rooms are luxurious but where we were, you could hear some noise in the night from other rude people next door. Also the very large mirror was right next to the bed so when you stood to see yourself, you could'nt see your legs because the bed was in the way. The bathrooms were nice and clean as well. The hotel has two outdoor pools which are very blue and heated- therefore making it very relaxing. Outside, the atmosphere is amazing, especially in the evening when music is playing and you can walk along the pier. Unfortunately, our stay was only for 6 night's and i didn't want to leave!!! There are shops and nice, American style restaurant/diners just up the road. Making it only a quick five minute walk away. I would definitely recommend The Hilton Clearwater Beach Hotel and I hope to stay there again!

Stayed here for 5 nights. I picked this hotel because of the great location, close to winter the dolphin and on the beach. There is a covered playground next door that my 3yr old and 10 yr old enjoyed. Pier 60 is right next door as well for entertainment and craft shopping. This hotel has 2 pools one 3ft (great for kids) and the other is larger and deeper. They have a grill at the pool and bar. Loved that the hotel was within walking distance to many restraunts and a cvs for snacks ect. There is a subway right accross the street and a small cafe for cheap breakfasts.

Our room had a fridge but no microwave. Wish it did, would of saved alot $$ on eating expenses. Our room was nice, clean and beds were comfy. They charge $7/night in parking expenses. Our door stuck. I think due to them just painting it. That was the only frustrating thing. The last day we were there, housekeeping did not clean our room. But the days they did, they did a great job. Glad I didn't pay full price. Paid $160/night. Shop around and get a better deal then 200-300$/night!!

Beach was nice, lots of waves for buggie boarding. The sand was the softest sand I have ever felt, almost silky like.

We drove to tarpoon springs one day about a 15 min drive, cool little greek town. Also drove to Cristino's coal oven pizza about 5 min away. This was the best pizza I have ever eaten. If you have transportation, I highly recommend a meal or two here!! We went back another day it was soooo good!! All the restruants we ate at near our hotel were just ok to me and over priced.

I had a 3 night stay at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The beach is great with powdery white sand and gentle waves. We called the hotel directly and booked with a goverment rate and got the hotel for half of what was advertised with all the hotel booking websites. We had an ocean view and enjoyed the balcony. We couldnt hear the ocean waves, and did hear traffic noise when sitting out there, but it wasn't anything to really complain about. We did self park and one night had to search for a spot, but eventually was able to find one. The staff was very helpful with pointing out restaurant recommendations. Loved the Frenchy's just a short walk down the beach. There was a refrigerator in our room which was great. There was two pools and we did use one of them, but the chlorine was so strong, it actually faded our suits with just a couple minute dip. There was a pool girl taking drink orders which also was a plus. There is a tiki bar on the beach, but we did not visit. I would recommend this hotel because of it being directly on the beach.

This hotel has an awesome location, walking distance to shops & restaurants. We obtained a very good rate due to attending a conference at the hotel. However, I would never pay the published rate on this facility. The carpets are worn, furnishings dated, beds uncomfortable, bathrooms moldy. Several electrical plugs in the room and bath did not work either. Bottom line, if you can get a good rate, it's fine for a short beach weekend. You're likely to spend more time outside the room anyway.

My wife and I just returned from an overnight stay at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort and overall we were pleased with the trip. The Hotel is located right on the beach and has its own stretch of private beach. Upon arrival you can either self park (Approx $7.00/night) or valet park (Approx $14.00/night). If you're just doing a brief visit, then I'd recommend valet parking. From the ground entrance you have to to take the elevator one floor up to get to the main lobby. Check-in was a a decent process. We'd arrived early and our room wasn't ready. However we were able to get into another room that was. The young lady at the front desk was very pleasant and she reviewed all aspects of our visit. Our room on the 4th floor had 2 double beds and a balcony with a combined city/ocean view. The room was clean and the water pressure was top notch. After check out the room we headed out to the pool bar to have lunch. The staff was attentive. The food was good but a bit pricey. Then again if you're staying on the Hilton property to eat, you can expect to pay a bit more than you normally would for the same thing outside. After lunch we headed to the hotels private beach. You can rent either a Cabana or Umbrella with chairs for the day. If you're going to get a Cabana, plan on waking up early as they go fast. We rented an umbrella and 2 chairs for the day which ran us $27.00. The staff came out and set up the area for us. The beach was very nice and clean. There is a bar right on the sand along with staff members driving around with a mobile bar. You can also order food from the pool restarant and have it brought out to the beach. We left the hotel for dinner so can't really comment on that. We did have room service for dessert though. It took about 20 minutes between ordering and a knock on the door. It was basic room service. Expensive but convenient if you don't feel like leaving your room again. We had the breakfast buffet at the hotels restarant in the morning prior to leaving. Breakfast was complimentary (due to our hilton honors membership). Their breakfast buffet is very extensive. You name it, they've got it. If you have to pay, I believe it may run $9.95 for breakfast. All in all we'd stay there again. The area is very nice to just walk around and browse. There's also a pier that you can go out on into the ocean. At night there are a lot of people along with vendor selling their personal knick knacks. If you want to go all the way out to the end of the pier it's 50 cents per person and more if you plan on heading out to fish. Nice hotel. Great Trip.

This is a great hotel with a great beach and tiki bar. The service was outstanding. The layout of the hotel is not the normal layout but is very open and airy and adds to the tropical feel. The city is also updating the area around the hotel with new shops, bars and restaurants: just keeps getting better. My buddy stayed with his family and enjoyed the beach and pool. The pool and lobby bars are great if you're a single or a couple. The rooms are very nice, most have balconies and the sliding door on the bathrooms is a nice touch. Definitely a good place for a repeat visit (I have stayed there many times). Incidentally, they do have meeting space and the hotel would make a great place for a seminar or sales meeting: no one would skip that meeting!

Room Tip: Look for the split view rooms: they don't look directly onto the beach, but they do have a view...

We went here for a new year weekend getaway with our infant daughter. While the hotel has the potential to be a grand holiday destination, there are just a few things that keep it from getting there.

Pros:
1. Location on the beach. Unbeatable.
2. Availability of Cabanas and beach chairs
3. Very nice pool that's open late. The temperature is maintained 'just right' and our infant loved it. Very little chlorine smell too.
4. Good breakfast selection. We got it complimentary being Gold members so I'm not sure how much it costs.
5. Nice view of the gulf, with a balcony.

Cons:
1. There should be more access points to the beach. It was an unnecessarily long walk around the fence.
2. The double room was disappointingly small. The bathroom was small too, but I don't care too much about that.
3. Housekeeping staff spoiled my wife's day by giving her an exaggerated scowl with no acknowledgement when she asked them if they could come back later since we were just getting ready for the beach.
4. Rooms in the front of the hotel have a long walk wherever you need to go: breakfast, pool, beach, etc.
5. We asked for a crib when reserving the room, and called and confirmed again the morning of checking in. But it was not there when we got to the room.
6. We called to ask for extra towels but never got them. I understand everyone was overworked because a local high school team had suddenly booked up a large percentage of the rooms.
7. During most of our stay, the walk from the room to the elevator (which was a long walk) was littered with housekeeping bags, bunched up used towels and unmanned trolleys. Not exactly what you would expect from a Hilton property.
8. The whole facility seemed a bit dated.

Overall, this is great for a family trip if you get it at a good price. Not really a romantic getaway kind of place.

Room Tip: Gulf view rooms have a longer walk to the beach and pool
