Hilton Pensacola Beach

Hilton Pensacola Beach hotel on the beach.Located on one of the world’s brightest white beaches, the Hilton Pensacola Beach is the most upscale of beachfront hotels in Pensacola. The Hilton Pensacola Beach offers both standard rooms with sound or gulf views and condo-style suites. 

Every room and suite at the Hilton Pensacola Beach offers views of the water: the beautiful Gulf of Mexico to one side, and the sparkling Santa Rosa Sound on the other. No matter which way you’re facing, you’re sure to see the reason Pensacola Beach is called the Emerald Coast.

At the Hilton Pensacola Beach, the beachfront location is just the beginning. The hotel houses one of the island’s best restaurants, Bonsai, so you can get the best of both worlds: dine out while staying in. In addition to two full restaurants, the Hilton Pensacola Beach also offers an open-air bar that features small plates and tropical drinks. 

For vacationers who favor chlorine over salt, the Hilton Pensacola Beach has two outdoor pools, a heated indoor pool, and hot tub. Private cabanas are available for rent if you’d like to add the option of a cool, shady nap to your poolside afternoon. 

If the sandy beach is your home away from home, the Gulf of Mexico is just steps from the Hilton Pensacola Beach. Grab your favorite beach read and soak up some rays on one of Florida’s most famous beaches, with no parking or directions to worry about: park your car for a small fee at check in and forget about it until it’s time to check out. There’s no need to drive when Pensacola’s best beach is right outside your door.
