I needed to get away but not too far from home. Peace and quiet with and ocean balcony view. The view from my 6th floor room was breath taken. The swim up bar was very friendly and so were the bartenders. My drink was a great value.

As a Diamond Hilton member, I try to stay with the Hilton family every where I go. I am familiar with the brand and 9 out of 10 times I leave extremely satisfied with facilities/service, etc. This is time, unfortunately, I have never felt so unwelcome in a hotel. Their favorite word "no" or "can't". The staff was very rude... More

If any of you have read my reviews, particularly of Galveston, you know I'm a huge fan of the San Luis Resort. Well we decided a last minute trip to Galveston last weekend (not a good idea...plan ahead!) and we made the call to the SLR and much to our dismay...yes indeed they were sold out. I sent a quick...

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and it was simply amazing. Right on the beach with amazing views. We stayed on the executive floor in a suite, if you're considering staying here I would highly recommend staying on that level.

Hotel service was good, but in need of an equipment update badly. The A/C was so loud that my daughter actually said she is having a hard time sleeping. The room does come with an old fridge that also makes a high pitch noise every few minutes. Lastly, don't even try to connect to the wifi. It's like connecting to... More
