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 preface my review by sharing I am a Hilton Honors Gold member and my husband, an early Landry's Select Club member. This was our second stay and was much more satisfactory than the first. Special kudos to Klairy in housekeeping. She is an asset you should make sure you keep. We had a couple of problems she solved quickly, professionally and friendly. We enjoyed the continental breakfast once a table had been cleared and we could be seated. Our waitress was marvelous considering how understaffed they were. My major complaint concerns your complimentary shuttle service on the island. I've heard all the "reasons" for the set circuit but, frankly, I believe you need to rethink it. The Grand 1895 Opera House is an asset to the island. The venue attracts visitors from the greater Houston area and many stay on the Island for at least one night. You should seriously consider offering transportation to their performances, as the Doubletree does. Read less

Brenden helped us with valet on our check-in day - he was patient (we have our 2 y/o with us), helpful with our bags, and informative about any questions we had. Our second day, Gregory and Greg did our valet and we’re super fast with getting our car to us. Again, very friendly and patient as we hassled the toddler into the car. The only issue… Read more

Our second day, Gregory and Greg did our valet and we’re super fast with getting our car to us. Again, very friendly and patient as we hassled the toddler into the car. The only issue we had was that there was no microwave in our room (only available in executive suits). Otherwise, it was a great stay! Read less

If you visit Galveston Island, so yourself a favor and stay at the Hilton! The staff are potentially the best trained, nicest and most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I travel for work and pleasure often and rarely encounter this type of hospitality.
