My husband and I got a day pass for a cruise stop here and it was worth every penny! We could walk right from the port to the hotel, and even though you have a nice view of the bay it still feels like a nice private beach. We sat and slept on our beach chairs while waiting for our... More

It seems they are trying harder. One problem was always the marble floors in the bedrooms, but lo, the second night, warm cushey slippers appeared and the next night so did chocolates. The staff is friendly with a little coaxing with the exception of Marcus who can't get any better without a halo. The food in the dining room was... More

Went to this property for a day pass during a recent cruise. We got off to a bad start when the front desk workers were rude to begin with.

This hotel is not on Paradise Island. They don't have a casino. What they have is a ok beach, a nice pool, good service, and a good place to eat and drink. The service starts when they open the door when you walk in to the maids and other support staff. The hotel is near the cruise ship dock which... More

I have been coming to this hotel for 10 years now and have always enjoyed the service. Sadly on this trip I found some of the front desk and restaurant staff to be rather rude. Simple requests at the front desk were met with a rather patronising reply which was a shock. Some restaurant staff were openly friendly to regular... More

We came to Nassau for three days, and stayed at the Hilton not sure if we were going to like it because it is downtown. As it happens, we loved it! We liked the rooms, which are comfortable.

The hotel was comfortable and the staff was very professional and friendly. The room needed some renovations. The bathroom especially needs updates because the chrome was rusted and the shower curtain rod fell when I attempted to close the curtain before starting my shower.

This is a wonderful business hotel that is in walking distance to the port in Nassau. It's a full service hilton that is reasonably priced and it's clean. The beach is just off the port so the swim space is limited. If you're here to vacation, it's doable but not the ideal location. The pool is big enough to swim... More

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
