Hilton Galveston Island Resort

Galveston, Texas

The hotel

The Hilton Galveston Island Resort is conveniently located on a 32-acre year-round beachfront resort overlooking the magnificent Gulf of Mexico and its sun-drenched beaches. Perfectly situated to enjoy all that this small island offers. Galveston has all the charm of a small southern town and is only 40 minutes south of Houston. Just 32 miles long and two and a half miles wide, with soft sandy beaches to relax on and 19th century architecture with interesting history and unique beauty to see. In the hotel you can enjoy a relaxing dip in the pool and let the waters help melt anyway any pre-holiday tensions you have. You can choose from the restaurant in the hotel; indulge in delicious, innovative food at the onsite Palm Court restaurant, or just a few steps outside of the hotel you can enjoy some traditional Gulf Coast seafood specialties at Landry's Seafood House which is located next door to the hotel or the well known children’s favourite the Rainforest Café.

I came for the Oni-Con convention, and chose Hilton for convenience and past experience. Staff were very kind and helpful, and the buffet and bar were good! If you play Pokemon Go, the hotel is also a gym!

Got in late and was immediately welcomed by Peggy, Ethan, and Chris who parked my car for me. The staff was warm welcoming and very polite. After checking in, I ended up getting some food and ordering a simple chicken and asparagus which Chef Joe made perfectly.

After checking in, I ended up getting some food and ordering a simple chicken and asparagus which Chef Joe made perfectly. Michelle Tradewell was my hostess and she was polite enough to let me finish my work just past 10:30 pm. Highly recommend those who normally stay at Hiltons to stay at this hotel. Read less
