I have just shared my stay at the Hilton Pattaya and have written extensively on my stay in their Premium Ocean Suite as well as the hotel facilities, including the executive lounge and breakfast offering. You can check that out here. For the first night of my stay, I was actually in their base-level Deluxe Ocean View Room since the hotel was fully booked for that night. I will simply share my thoughts on the room and it is actually very decent. I would be happy with it. While extra space is always good, let’s see their base-level rooms.

Deluxe Ocean View Room
For the first night, I stay in the Deluxe Ocean View room. These are the base-level rooms here at Hilton Pattaya. Despite being on the lower end, the room still comes with an ocean view. This ensures that you don’t miss out on the fantastic view here. They have nicely arranged for a room on the 30th floor where the high floor room will ensure the room have a nice view. The room is a short walk away from the lift lobby. The Deluxe Ocean View room measures a spacious 46 Sqm and has a short walkway after entering.
I love how lovely the place is designed. It is so chic and bright with plenty of natural light. The decor blends in well with the location. You have the amazing ocean view greeting you once you enter. Immediately on the right, you can find the wardrobe which is sufficient for your stay. It comes with everything that you might need for the stay from an ironing kit to plenty of hangers.
On the left, is the entrance to the bathroom which is on the spacious side. I love the set-up and you have both a separate standing shower and a freestanding bathtub. This is a commendable set-up for a base-level room. Amenities provided are from Crabtree and Evelyn as usual in Hilton properties. While there is only a single sink, that also meant that there is plenty of counter space.
Both the tub and standing shower are very spacious. Water pressure and temperature control are excellent and I had a great shower. The bathroom is also designed with a glass wall to allow you to have a sea view from the tub as well. Blinds are available for those who prefer more privacy.
Then you enter the main space of the room itself. The white look of the room looks very welcoming. I love the mirror on the right which makes it even more spacious. The minibar chest is on the right with the mini fridge fully stocked. You can find all sorts of snacks and drinks with hotel prices to match. Simply visit the 7-Eleven next to the hotel to stock up. Complimentary bottles of drinking water are offered and replenished daily during housekeeping and turndown service. There are also some packaged tea and instant coffee. I am disappointed not to see an actual coffee machine in the room although that might not be a concern if you have executive lounge access.
There is a luggage storage rack on the right along the wall. I love the design where you can fit your luggage on top of it and in the middle, you can store some smaller items too. The high-definition Smart TV is mounted on the wall and of a good size for the room. There are plenty of cable TV channels, you can cast content from your device to the TV too. It might be located at an angle but you can pivot it to face the bed or the sitting area. The work desk has sort of a vanity area with a flip-up mirror. The armchair also provides a decent amount of support for short periods of work. Wi-Fi is easy to connect to in the room and the connection is good. Outlets are readily available here.
Despite being a base level, there is still a separate seating area. It feels more like a junior suite with a circular sofa surrounding the coffee table. You can face the seat towards the television or the ocean which is quite lovely.
The plush king-size bed is designed right in the middle of the room. The mattress is on the softer side and the pillows were rather mush but thankfully additional harder contour pillows can be requested from the staff. On both sides of the bed, you can find controls for the lighting as well as power sockets. I appreciated that they had USB outlets too. What I would love is to have the blinds and sheers electronically controlled.
The highlight of this room has to be the view and the balcony. You have a little patio area where it gives you an amazing view of Pattaya including the coastline. This will be the perfect spot for sunsets. Do note that you might get some spillover noise from the nightlife nearby.
These rooms were quite spacious for base-level rooms and gorgeous. You still have a great view which is a crucial part of the experience here. Even without an upgrade, I thought these base-level rooms would certainly still offer a comfortable stay. The suites do offer a more spacious space for your stay. There is nothing much to fault with the hard product here at Hilton Pattaya. With a slight service improvement, they can even be a Conrad.
