The Abu Dhabi Hilton is one of the older hotels in the area. Because of that, the rooms may not be the best quality compared to the other 4- and 5-star hotels in the area.

However, they are comfortable enough.
I recommend getting a room on the higher floors, if you want a view of the ocean and Marina Mall.
Or a room on the south side if the view is not important to you. The reason is because the lower floors on the north side are illuminated until midnight with bright floodlights and your curtains may not block all the light.

Unique Qualities: The Hilton has a business center (but it is very overpriced... $9USD for internet 30 minutes!)
There are several good restaurants, like the Italian restaurant, "Bice".

There is also a bar call Hemmingway, a Jazz Club (dress code requires collared shirt), and a disco (males must show room key otherwise pay cover)

But the best thing about the Hilton is that it has a private beach. Simply walk out the front door, cross Corniche Road (either crosswalk or underpass) and show your room key for access.

If this beach is not what you want and you have time to explore, go north to the beaches of Jumeirah. There is a Hilton hotel here too. The room key will allow you access to the Hilton area so you can use the showers, bathrooms, etc.
