Disappointing stay
Reviewed 3 days ago

We just returned from a 3-night stay at this hotel. For such a historic building, it's too bad the owners are putting all their money into the new construction next door. Hotel is old and worn down. Lobby has been updated but guest floors have old, ragged carpet. Ceiling tiles show signs of water damage (mold?). Roof tiles are missing. Only 1 elevator worked for the entire property (including service staff)! And stairs we used only went to the 3rd floor. Continental breakfast is overpriced. Staff is friendly but slow (island time?). They don't appear to have a doorman or concierge. Pool lounges are nice and it's nice to have a beach in town but I won't stay here again or recommend this property until after a revamp.

This is a icon in the Hotels around the world. It should be protected.
The new building of the Pointe and the Margaritaville has shown its wear on this beautiful hotel..I have stayed here before a year ago and can see a significant difference.

Lots of value but not perfect!

The British Colonial Hilton in Nassau is an impressive spot with its own private beach...very resort-like. Friendly staff,easy check-in, convenient location. Standard room with king bed not too spacious but adequate. Clean overall but rug beside bed pretty filthy...in need of a good shampooing. Some mold in shower which my wife found off-putting. Very comfortable bed with spotless sheets & spacious bathroom with lots of quality towels. We enjoyed our stay & would stay there again.

Nassau is a very busy and slightly dangerous venue

Being in the town of Nassau is an adventure that requires caution. The town is very crowded, louded, and full of dicey folks. The hotel itself seemed safe, but venturing outside was another story especially after dark.

Just average, if that

Being a Hilton property one would always expect a certain level of quality. This one falls way short.

The hotel needs a major renovation. Rooms and corridors are very tired. Restaurant seems to be waiting for the budget to be approved before they can start renovating. The elevators are a joke; taking forever to go up and down. While the location is excellent, the quality is not Hilton.

Maybe the new addition next door will prompt a complete overhaul of the hotel. Until then I would recommend staying at the newer end of the island. The casino and property is amazing.
