Best Hotel in Daytona Beach

from A TripAdvisor Member
I believe if you are looking for a great hotel and are willing to spend just alittle more in costs, then go to the Hilton. Formally known as the Adams Mark (which was a 2 star hotel) it was bought by Pyrimid Hotel Group and Franchised as a Hilton. It is undergoing a mulit-million dollar renovation and it is now a 4 star hotel and it has earned it. The whole hotel will be open by jan.2006 and i have walked around the whole hotel. They have a new bar with 12 flat screen plasma tvs which they will show all the football games, they have a piano bar for the more conservative guests, with a live piano player. They have 2 pools , one in whichis an indoor/outdoor pool. They also have 3 jucuzzis. They are building a spa, but it wont be completed for at least another six months. All of their workout equipment have got built in flatscreen LCD tvs so u can run on the treadmill or pedal on the bikes and watch any TV station u want. Some people complianed they had to use their keys to operate the elevators, but u know that makes me feel more safe cause i dont want some one who is not suppose to be in the hotel snooping around my room. Overall, The Hilton of Daytona Beach is the best hotel in the area AND it holds the highest stars of any hotel in Daytona. If you come to Daytona and u want to have a good time and relax stay at the Hilton!

Friendly Staff

from anony
The thing that most stood out for me about our stay was how all the staff we interacted with (front desk, valet, housekeeping,shop, fitness) had a good attitude and were very friendly/welcoming. We stayed in the north tower. The south(original) tower appeared to be undergoing renovation. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. Plenty of space in the bathroom, and there is a 2nd sink/mirror area outside the bathroom. Room had iron, coffee maker, free coffee, blow dryer. Just don't drink the water-- $3/bottle.
My only complaint was that they serviced our room late 2/3 days we were there. One time not til after 1pm, and the last day not til after 3pm. Perhaps since Hilton has taken over from Adams Mark, the staff is new and they don't have the routine down yet?
Valet parking was $11. The valet started to tell us about the self parking - across the street, down the block, -and I stopped him there because it sounded like too much hassle to self park.
For Daytona, I think this is one of the better areas to stay in- no cars on beach and you are on the boardwalk, adjacent to Ocean Walk shops/restaurants/movies, and walking distance to pier and Ocean Deck restaurant/barand a 7-11(99cents water), and Burger King across the street for a cheap meal.

Great Place to Stay-Anybody who disputes that is crazy!

Let me start off by saying our family travels alot and I'm a bit spoiled too so I know a great hotel when I'm staying at one. There is nothing worse than a bad hotel. This one is fantastic!! Great rooms, someone said ealier how great the beds were and he is right- my bed at home isnt as comfortable. I think the Hilton has the best part of the beach too. We walked up and down and I think the beach at the Hilton was the cleanist and has a boardwalk too. We loved how everything was right there for you to rent. No need to bring anything but a towel. You could rent chairs, umbrellas, bikes, boogie boards even surf boards. The staff was awesome and Free parking across the street and my son loved the fireworks held every Saturday. We will only stay at the Hilton when we come back. The only thing I can even complain about (and it's a minor one) is that we stayed in the South tower and check in was at the North Tower. It seemed like a mile long hike to get back and forth to our room if we were in the South Tower.

Nice Hotel, but watch the fees!

Check in-Called in reservation and asked if we could check in early. We were assured we could. On arrival there was no note on our reservation. They did however offer another room while waiting for our room to get ready.

Room-Stayed in the south tower which is older but room was clean, presentation was nice, and had iorn, coffee maker, nice ammenities in bathroom.

Food and Service- Staff was helpful and polite, bellboy told us what was available while walking to room. Room service was on time for breakfast and meal was warm and well presented. Breakfast buffet was average for 10 bucks but they custom cook your eggs. Bars were clean and staff were friendly.

The only problem is fees. 11 bucks a night for valet parking, Gratuity for room service include 18% + 2 delivery. Internet is advertised but was in very warm room with 4 computers. If you want it in your room its 10 bucks. Things like this can really add up fast.

Overall hotel was nice with very short walk to beach and close to attractions. Would stay there again. Hint for out of towners. If staying more than a coulple of days. buy a cheap beach chair with an umbrella and buy a 2 quart container for ice water.

Perfect Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
After a week long vacation in Key West my husband and children (14 and 15) decided they wanted to stop in Daytona Beach on our drive back to Maryland. We had only planned on doing some shopping and eating dinner and then driving on to GA. We loved the location and went to the boardwalk and paid $5.00 for parking. We ate dinner on the pier and loved the view so my husband decided to stay the night. We asked what the hotel on the end was and the women told us it was the Hilton. We called them right away and made a reservation over the phone. They put us in a Ocean View room for $150 a night (that was a steal compared to the $290 we were paying a night in Key West). We walked to the hotel after we ate, walked right up to the reservation desk and there was no one in line. We were checked in and in our room in less then five minutes. We walked the boardwalk for about an hour. They do fireworks every Saturday night and we a perfect view from our hotel room. The pool is open till 11 so we went down and swam for about an hour. The pool is great but the only problem is that it does not go above 5 feet. There were two hot tubs and they were nice also. In the morning we checked out over the phone and left as happy as could be. We will be staying there again next summer.

Terrible Hotel and Staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
If it wasn't for the beautiful beach, I would give my experience a 1

I arrived at the Hilton on a monday for a business convention, Upon arrival I tried to find a place to park to check in, of the two entrances, one was closed and the other was backed up out on to A1A and about an hour wait. After parking in the parking garage across the street, I walked over to the hotel, this hotel does not offer free parking at the hotel, it's $11 per day for Valet. The lines for check in were amazingly long and extremely slow. I got my room key and went to the elevator, you need your key to go up in the elevator, and mine didn't work. So, I went back to the desk and asked for it to be re-done, the kid looked at me like I had just stolen somthing and said, I don't know how to do that, you'll have to wait for the other rep to help you. 15 minutes (for 1 person) later, They fixed my key and I went up to my Oceanfront room. When I got to my room on the 3rd floor in the south tower, I was overlooking the top of the second floor roof and looking at the giant bungee cord swing and had to crook my neck to see the oceanfront. Anyway, I went back down to get my parking validated and they say "We don't validate for the parking garage, you have to park in our free lot behind the BBQ place 2 Blocks away!" good thing they sign all over saying this (Sarcasm)
I am on a business trip and so I ask about internet access, they tell me that it is $9.95 for 24 hours and I would have to buy a cable, if I didn't have one! $10 Freakin bucks a day for 'net access, almost everywhere else is free, So I think, OK, I'll use my dial up, nope... they want $1 per local phone call... man. Anyway, they have about 20 channels with HBO and starz, all of the channels suck really bad.
The next day, a group of us had lunch in the bistro, I had a Rueben sandwich and fries, $10! Good, but not worth $10, My boss had an upset stomach the night before and had to get some crackers from the gift shop, little pack of cheese crackers $.40 at wal-mart.... $3+ here.
The last day, i get my bill under my door, I am tax exempt, so I look and they charged me county tax, but not state tax.. So another trip to the front desk.
The whole time, I felt as if the staff was just there to get a paycheck, no one wanted to help, and was really bothered if you asked for help. The hotel is under construction so there are alot of unfinished walls, ceilings, etc.
I would never go back to this hotel again. I was overpriced and they nickel and dime you to death, for the "Convenience"

Wonderful improvements, great staff.

from A TripAdvisor Member
I disagree with the last writer. I too was here when the hotel was Adam's Mark and I found that the current staff is much, MUCH more courteous. The hotel is still undergoing construction on the South Tower, and the better pool is not open. BUT the renovation is great. Rooms are nicely decorated. Beds ROCK...5 feather pillows, top notch sheets. The "usable" pool is good, and exercise room is better than most. And again, I found the staff to be very very nice. Yes, there is some noise on weekends, and there is some construction noise during the day, but overall, I think that Hilton has greatly improved this hotel.

Mixed response

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very noisy location, especially on weekends. Bandstand, mini-carnival just outside the doors. An attractive hotel but some not-so-courteous staff. Good housekeeping, however. (My previous visits--when the hotel was an Adams Mark--were more satisfactory.)

from BMK1
I stayed in this hotel in August 2004, prior to its closure due to Hurricane Frances. Back in August, it was a dark, dingy place--sort of creepy and moldy. I just returned from a stay at the redone hotel--now the Daytona Hilton Oceanwalk. Although it is still a work in progress, the renovated rooms are so much nicer, and the staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. There is no better view of the ocean in this part of Florida. The restaurant for breakfast is pretty bad--go down the street to the StarLight diner or IHOP.

Wedding Nightmare

from A TripAdvisor Member
I planned a wedding after the hurricanes and was assured that the hotel would be fully operational. 3 weeks before my wedding - none of the facilities I agreed on were going to be open and they are giving us unacceptable alternative sites on property to do our ceremony, such as in a corner of a room in front of an escalator. Never have I been treated so poorly and not been accomodated. Not once was there an apology and the wedding coordinator doesn't care about our function because it isn't a 1000 person function. None of my guest could get rooms and no one returns my calls until pestered repeatedly. Not a good experience. I would have a better experience barefoot on the beach and not having to deal with their uncaring and snide attitudes towards their customers.

Top Local Tips for Daytona Beach

It's the BEACH...and the beach has critters! Whatever you do, remember that you are at the BEACH in Daytona, and even the nicest establishments are going to have a bug or two...this is Florida, after all! Generally, the newer the hotel, the less likely you are to see roaches or other bugs. Moisture and dampness is another problem in Daytona, and there's nothing worse than musty, damp carpeting in your hotel room! Be very choosy about where you'll stay, read up on it here at TripAdvisor, and ask around before making a decision...there aren't many upscale hotels in Daytona, so plan ahead, too!

Mai Tai Bar The Mai Tai Bar located in the Ocean Shops is great through the week. Happy hour comes twice a night & the staff is wonderful. I went there on Saturday night though & was a totally different experience. Overcrowded & had to wait 15 minutes at the bar to get a drink. They need more staff on the weekends!! They did have a fun band that night though.

Be prepared for people on the boardwalk in front of the beach We were approached several times by people trying to sell things. This was very irritating.
