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.

Our room was not clean! The temperature was impossible to regulate, and overall appearance is very outdated. Whatever you do- avoid room 201 due to the noisy elevator that you will hear all night long! Very disappointed!!!

My Queen & I recently stayed at this Hotel and when I tell you we had a great time, "WE HAD A GREAT TIME!" At first look, we felt like this was going to be a hard stay because on the surface it didn't have the aesthetic appeal that we are normally used to seeing, however they made up for it with the staff and responsiveness to our needs.

My Queen & I recently stayed at this Hotel and when I tell you we had a great time, "WE HAD A GREAT TIME!" At first look, we felt like this was going to be a hard stay because on the surface it didn't have the aesthetic appeal that we are normally used to seeing, however they made up for it with the staff and responsiveness to our needs. The staff is simply amazing and they all had wonderful personalities as if they had just come out of a meeting about being completely Customer Service Oriented!! LOLOL.... Well we know it wasn't a fluke because they were the exact same way everyday. For example, we felt like we had an issue with our television in the room and immediately an extraordinary gentlemen (Mr Vernon *aka* "Mr. V") with their maintenance department showed up at the door and politely took care of the issue along with letting us know that if we needed anything else during our stay, please don't hesitate to ask.... Now, I don't know about you, but the small things like that go a long way with us!! The bartenders have absolutely great personalities and are tremendous conversationalists too.. A huge shout out to Furkan, exceptional bartender. There are so many things that I could speak about, however, I won't bore you too much, just know that the overall experience was phenomenal mostly because of how attentive the staff was with making us feel right at home. We will definitely return sometimes soon.... Read less

We recently stayed a week and the hotel location is great. While on the island, we were in a car accident potentially totaling our vehicle. We needed local trustable guidance to find a collision center and Tarin Smiley and "Tony" in the food area were amazingly helpful. Taking time away from their work, they got us to the most trusted collision center on the island who is taking great care of us. We were really desperate until we found these two people willing to stop what they were doing to help us. We are forever grateful. Read less
