I was so happy to arrive at the Hilton after 4 nights at a Marriott! Level of service and amenities was much better. Nice pool area. The location is right next to the beach and close to other Galveston attractions. Easy to get around.

Whenever my mom and I pay Galveston a visit, we usually stay at the San Luis Resort. When we came to Galveston last week, we found out that the rates at San Luis were ridiculously high. We decided to try other hotels on Seawall and ended up staying at Hilton. The front desk lady, Kim, gave us $50 off per... More

Vacationed with my granddaughter. The pool activities and pool staff were awesome. The room was old; housekeeping iffy at best; and the a/c was awful. The restaurant food is last resort! There is a lot of choices in the area that I will check out first next time.

Our family was totally impressed with every single employee of this hotel!!! Each took his/her time to meet every need and never failed to ask, "Is there anything more I can do for you?" This hotel may have been the best we've ever experienced!

Hotel's location is superb! However, rates are extremely overpriced! Rooms are outdated and restroom wasn't the "tidiest"... For the price of the room, one would expect to stay in a more updated, cleaner, more modern room. There were also some sort of flying insects in our bathroom.Staff was super nice. Would probably not pick this hotel to stay at in... More

Not what I was expecting. The pool and lobby are deceiving. The rooms are not as nice as the rest of the place. The elevator was hot, the hallway to the room needed vacuumed and was worn bad. The trash cans didn't have any liners in them, so I was afraid to put anything in there. The balcony, which was... More

Galveston beach was a huge disappointment with the seaweed and stench, however the Hilton made up for it. The pool was great, every staff member said hello, and the hotel was clean. They offer kids activities throughout the day and when our room was made up, they set up our kids stuffed animals like they were also staying with us.... More
