One of the sleeker new breed of Hiltons, this snazzy, 25-story affair on the beachfront is a quick stroll north of the main nightlife/ dining action. Highlights include a palm-studded sixth-floor terrace with a compact but dreamy infinity pool and cabanas (one downside is that it all slips into shadow well before afternoon’s end—but hey, the ocean’s still a hop and a skip away) and the fine contemporary Mediterranean restaurant ilios (on the same floor, giving you an option of dining outdoors). Two other onsite eateries are S3 for fish, steak, and sushi and a casual sandwich shop/bakery; additional on-premises amenities include a nice little spa, fitness room, and kids’ program. The 374 studios and suites are roomy and all have water views; most are outfitted with kitchen or kitchenette as well as (nice touch) both shower and tub. One interesting thing to note is that the property tries to make a point of being green; it was the first to be so certified here on the beachfront, and as of this writing, the latest addition in 2014 was the installation of wind turbines on the roof. Thar she blows!
