What Works and What Doesn't
is a place for me to review various persons, places and things.
Hilton Resort: Longboat Key, Florida
Large room with great view of Gulf
Very good food in restaurant. Generous portions. Appropriately priced.
Room service prompt. Food arrived hot.
Nice Beach/Nice Pool/Hot Tub
Free shuttle to St. Armands Circle and parts of Anna Marie Island
Housekeeping: worked with our schedule
Maintenance: Very quick to come to room when needed
|Peeling wall paper|
The room was in very poor condition. The bathroom needs special attention (see pictures of the bottom of the bathroom door, caulking needed, counter top looks stained). The closet door came off it rails not once but twice and the bathroom light switch was broken. Wall paper was peeling away from wall. Water spots on ceiling.
|Carts blocking hallway|
Service very variable. Infrequently the front desk acted as if they could care less. Although most shuttle drivers were good or very good, one or more again gave the attitude that they could care less. Wait staff in restaurant mostly very good….other times not so much. The bartender did not know his stock well. He did poor a good drink neat.
Maids left carts blocking hallway
No shuttle from airport to hotel
Bottom-line? For the most part this did not work. I doubt I
will stay here again. I will not recommend it to my friends.
