Property has a private beach
In-room Wi-Fi is only free for Hilton Honors members
Situated within walking distance of historic downtown Nassau, the British Colonial Hilton Nassau serves as an ideal retreat for business travelers and vacationers. Boasting 13,500 square feet of meeting space, a business center and high-speed internet access (which costs extra in rooms for non-Hilton Honors members), on-duty travelers can only blame the area's alluring white sand beaches for any interruptions in productivity. Leisure travelers will have their needs met, too, with spacious rooms featuring Hilton's signature Serenity beds, 32-inch LCD TVs and coffee makers, among other amenities. Guests also receive access to a private beach with paddleboards and kayaks, plus an outdoor pool, a fitness center a pingpong table. What's more, the hotel features four restaurants and bars, but recent guests bemoaned the eateries' slow service and pricey, mediocre cuisine; many past visitors recommend dining at central Nassau's restaurants for more reasonably priced local fare.

Critic Reviews



A luxury room in downtown Nassau that also has a private beach? That’s the Colonial Hilton, where you can sit on the sand under a waving palms and watch the massive cruise ships down just to the right and the lighthouse at the end of the long arm of Paradise Island known as Colonial Beach directly across the water.



This landmark hotel is the social heart of Nassau, the setting for political meetings and the city's most important events. Guest rooms have sophisticated decor and offer unmatched views of the harbor or of old Nassau.


The 288-room British Colonial Hilton is a historic Downtown landmark offering all of the features (and add-on fees) you'd expect from an upscale establishment. Set on 300 feet of private harborside beach, the hotel neighbors Nassau’s main touristy strip, and it's walking distance to the Nassau Bahamas Cruise Terminal.
