MYSTIC… the very term conjures up a magical place where ancient ships rest, where tales of the sea are recounted, where belugas, sea lions and penguins live together under one roof, where an historic downtown pulses with an eclectic restaurant and entertainment scene. Mystic is the place where you will find the sights and sounds of New England and at its heart is Hilton Mystic. Modeled after the brick mills that dotted the landscape in the 1900’s, renewed by a major transformation in 2015, the Hilton combines its unique location with passionate customer service and the style and comfort you expect from Hilton.
