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.

This is a great hotel on the beach front.

This is a great hotel on the beach front. Had booked this a few weeks ago as-well as a few other Hilton’s 4th weekend with my 11 year old son Only to find out the beaches were closed on the morning of trip. Had stayed at Hilton clear lake previous day who had decided to shut close pool and restaurant on the day! So popped in to Hilton Galveston early to check things were still open. Angie on the front desk was Fantastic! So helpful a credit to the hotel! We were able to get checked in early. We headed to the pool which was great area. Thought as beaches were closed may have been packed but not at all. Quite a few families and where the bar is in middle this area is designated for over 21’s. Room was great comfy beds. Rainforest Cafe is right next door for which we had a meal. We also walked to the pier 2.5 Miles’s was my sons idea and I think he regretted it after 😂 Overall this is a really nice hotel will definitely be staying again Read less

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The staff was great and very helpful. We really appreciated the help and recommendations from Peggy, April at the desk, and April in the restaurant. The beaches were closed due to the pandemic, but we were able to spend time at the pool.

Overall, we had a wonderful trip! The people working were great and offered tremendous service. We really enjoyed Peggy, April, and April especially. That said, we were slightly disappointed in the accommodations. For being a four-star resort and the price, I certainly wouldn’t consider it to be exceptionally nice or worth what you pay. The rooms… Read more

That said, we were slightly disappointed in the accommodations. For being a four-star resort and the price, I certainly wouldn’t consider it to be exceptionally nice or worth what you pay. The rooms were pretty standard. The food wasn’t great. The pool was loud, full of kids, and right against the road. If you’re willing to pay that price, I’d honestly recommend looking at Hotel Galvez down the street. Again, it was a great trip overall! I just had expectations for the resort that weren’t met.

This was my first hotel stay since the onset of the pandemic and the cleanliness of the room and lobby areas made me feel at ease. Great views of the beach and easy walking distance to several restaurants and attractions. Got to meet the General Manager, Jeremy, and it was easy to see why the team is so hospitable with him leading the charge.

Angie at the front desk was absolutely wonderful! Super amiable, helpful, and courteous! She provided us with a higher level floor; so that we could have a better view of the Gulf. The hotel was super nice as well!
