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.

With the coronavirus scare the whole place is just about a ghost town, but stressed as I was, this was a nice welcome. Peggy at the front desk was very helpful, and while its not an ideal situation lately, her kindness and professionalism made a stressful day better. The grounds are very nice and the room was comfortable. There are no services anywhere right now so just having a nice place to myself is really interesting haha Read less

Ordered room service for breakfast and was told I'd receive it in 30 minutes. 45 minutes later I called back and was told it was just being cooked and would be another 15 minutes. It took almost an hour and a half total. The staff person who took my reminder call was unapologetic and I was told several big orders were in front of mine. I am certain someone forgot to put my order in until I called to see why it was late. When it did arrive, it was left with out silver ware. That took another 15 minutes and two calls to get delivered. By then my food was cold and my family waited all that time to eat and go to the beach. Very unsatisfactory room service order. Read less
