This is the best business Hotel in the Bahamas. The service is outstanding and structured to help the business traveler. That said, please remember the pace in The Bahamas and Nassau is different than other national capitols. It is a resort city on an island with an island pace. Enjoy your stay!

We had a bad customer experience at arrival with the front desk staff. The tall male staff refuse to give us an upgrade (PAID). Poor customers skills. Also, there was NO mention about the Pool being renovated.

Completely overpriced. They are currently still holding over $700 in incidental fees for the three nights that I stayed. That $700 of course includes ridiculously overpriced room taxes, service fees, etc. Unheard of. Not even the Ritz or a hotel on par with the Ritz charges a hold for each night of your stay. I could understand one night but...

Currently staying at the British Colonial Hilton Nassau. The hotel is well located in downtown, on the beach, and near shops. Prices in the hotel are high, with a 15% service charge and 7.5% tax applicable to everything, and $3 delivery charge applicable to room service or table service, and of course a 15-20% tip expected on everything on top....

Great choice in a hotel if you like to be in center of Nassau's excitement. It is situated beside the cruise ship docks, the Fish Fry, Fat Tuesday and Senior Frogs.

We bought a day pass to the hotel for our port day during a cruise. You can walk to the hotel from the cruise port, its a little further than we thought, but not bad.

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
