Hilton St. Augustine Historic Bayfront
beware hidden fee's
On our recent stay there were many issues with this hotel and management. Initially when we checked in, we were introduced to their hidden fee of 21.00 per night,plus tax for parking, it was no where on the reservation we made in the description of the nightly rate, or anywhere near the price of the room per night on their website. So after being told I had an advanced reservation that could not be canceled, I had no choice but to accept their scam.
Then after checking in, it was real odd to see they have doors to the hallways of the rooms with keycard locks that never worked during our entire stay, allowing anyone from right off of the sidewalk outside the door to enter our hotel and any time of the day or night, leading to lack of security for stangers to wander the property, noise off the roadway right outside the window made for a horrible sleep.
Then we were introduced to their wallpaper that is peeling off the walls, broken toilet handle in our room that had an issue sticking when you flushed the toilet that sounded like a jet engine when you flushed it.
The next day we had our room serviced only to return to empty shampoo bottles and trash in the bathroom that was not discarded by their housekeeper, the kleenex box was never refilled, their housekeeper had the nerve to leave us used drinking glasses in the bathroom and put a paper lid on top of them like they were new, it was obvious they were not new glasses due to the toothpaste that was still on the rim of the glass that was used that morning.
The lack of anyone concerned speaks volumes about their management and their operation. You could change their sign from hilton to holiday inn, not many people would know the difference after a stay like we had at this dump of a hotel.
Unique Quality: zero
One of St. Augustines Best Hotels
We love going to this hotel! Pay the extra for a bayfront Balcony. It is always clean and fresh smelling. You just feel clean when you are staying. We have had some bad experiences at other hotels in the area.
Unique Quality: nicely decorated rooms, balcony, great views of the bayfront
The Heart of History
For my Birthday getaway, my boyfriend and I decided to check into the Historic Hilton as recommended by a friend of ours. The room boasted a wonderful view of the ocean and a balcony that we paid a little extra to ensure that we had. Though a little costlier than some other hotels, it wasn't outrageously over-priced and the location (right in the heart of the historic downtown area) made it worth it; Pretty much everything is within walking distance. The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area, and the rooms were very nice and comfortable, too.
Unique Quality: Beautiful ocean view, flat-screen TV, free internet
Directions: Downtown on A1A
Hotel with a Historic Flavor
Right on the bayfront in the historical area, this is a boutique hotel with 72 rooms in 19 different townhouse-type buildings. An advantage to satying here is that it is right in the middle of all the action, especially on weekends.
Directions: Eastern edge of historical area.
First Class on the Waterfront
This beautiful new hotel replaces a much older occupant along the intercoastal and just south of the fort. Rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. Since you don't need a car for your stay in the town, the underground parking is perfect. The staff will drive you to and from your restaurant in the evening. A great experience.
Unique Quality: From the front door you are a few steps from the inter coastal, the Bridge of Lions and the town market square.
