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...

If you do not insist on being on Paradise Island, this is really an extremely good option. We stayed on the executive floor, in a comfortable room with a view to the pool and the sea. The included breakfast at the executive club is good also. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, it is good though not exceptional. Service...

It was our first visit to the Bahamas, and we decided stay at this historic hotel for four nights using Hilton Honors points. The hotel is located in downtown Nassau, about 40 minutes from the airport. Side note: the taxi drivers throughout our stay were all well dressed, friendly, helpful and professional. Back to the BCH: the lobby is lovely;...

The BC Hilton is in a good downtown location, with a private beach and nice pool area. In particular, both areas have cabanas and lounging areas that are free of charge. The only thing I would caution is that there are extra fees for WiFi, maid service, and an energy surcharge. It's not a big deal, but just an FYI,...

The staff is very polite, everyone greets you with a "hello" or "good morning". All were efficient and quick to help, and even made my welcome special. The cleaning staff, restaurant staff and bell staff were equally as welcoming making sure i was happy with my stay.

Visited here for second time and was thoroughly impressed. The staff are delightful, friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little small but well appointed and mine had a good harbour view. The lobby is incredible - steeped in history and with amazing indoor giant Palm trees. Executive lounge is excellent, and offers a lovely environment for breakfast.

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
