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.

Great location on the Seawall and beautiful resort pool area. Love the in pool Bar. I would appreciate more lighting in the hotel rooms as they are dark with no overhead lighting & very low wattage bulbs in the lamps.

We ended up staying here and glad we did. The place is clean and the staff is great. Especially pleased with Mr. Ethan how he went above and beyond to help our stay be more comfort. Way to go! Definitely would stay again at this Hilton location.

Let me begin by saying there was not one employee of the Hotel that treated us improperly. Everyone was super nice. First problem arose on 5/21. We probably left our room around noon and returned close to 4pm and found the room had not been cleaned.

Let me begin by saying there was not one employee of the Hotel that treated us improperly. Everyone was super nice. First problem arose on 5/21. We probably left our room around noon and returned close to 4pm and found the room had not been cleaned. I informed the young man at the desk and just requested some clean towels and coffee for the next morning. After returning from dinner, we found nothing had been brought to our room. We happened to run into a gentleman in the hall named Talmadge who was in housekeeping and brought us what we had requested. Next day, we again didn’t get out until noon and returned close to 330. No cleaning done in the room. I visited the front desk and complain this was the 2nd day we returned with no housekeeping. I’m told they will call housekeeping. I ask when will they come as I’ve got an 89 year old mother with limited mobility that I now have to move out of the room, I was told they’d call housekeeping. I go to the room, after about 20 minutes we head down to the lounge to kill time. We return around 430 and no change to the room. While my mom is in the bathroom a woman from housekeeping comes to the door and says she will wait and do the room after my mom is finished. The room is finally taken care of and we checked out the following day. Surprisingly, when I checked out, I wasn’t asked if I enjoyed my visit. There are plenty of other venues in Galveston and, as a Hilton Honors Member has higher expectations of the property. Read less

The Hilton was a standard Hilton, nothing really stood out. I did noticed that they don't offer a free breakfast buffet for Diamond members? That's a real bummer, where most other properties welcome the Diamond members to a full-cook to order breakfast. I think that's something we have earned over the years.

The Hilton was a standard Hilton, nothing really stood out. I did noticed that they don't offer a free breakfast buffet for Diamond members? That's a real bummer, where most other properties welcome the Diamond members to a full-cook to order breakfast. I think that's something we have earned over the years. They only offered the "Executive Lounge" with nasty eggs. The fruit was decent, and the option for coffee, juice and other treats was nice. No way, should a Diamond member be expect to pay $20 dollars to just have a full-course breakfast. The beds sleep pretty good, location was decent. Read less
