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.

We spent New Years Eve and New Years Day 2021 in Galveston at the Hilton Galveston Resort. Check in was a breeze, the front desk clerk was professional, witty and full of ideas for how to spend our winter retreat. We lucked out into balcony view rooms, which were perfectly clean and comfortable, and had pretty great views. The pool was AMAZING and warm, which was not necessarily the case in many of the other hotels we had stayed. The dry sauna made the winter pool exit transition much more enjoyable. New Years Eve we were all surprised with an amazing fireworks show, which we watched from pool, it was a magical site, and a great way to start off 2021. Great hotel, excellent service and friendly staff. Thank you so much! Read less

The highlight was our balcony view of an unexpected firework show on New Years Eve. This place is perfectly located on the Seawall next to Rainforest Cafe...which is a must do with the kiddos...plus you get wonderful views from the window or pool of the erupting volcano at Rainforest! It really is a perfect place for family fun or a romantic stay on Galveston...don't hesitate to book! Read less
