We had a very nice stay at the Hilton Galveston. The customer service at the Hotel was great. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. We made the mistake of staying at a Marriott property the night before and were very pleased to stay at the Hilton for 2 nights. The property could use some updates, although our room was very clean... More

The hotel and pool area is very pretty and just across the street from the Beach. With walking distance from several nice restaurant. The room itself could use some updating but overall it was nice. Had treated my niece and her babies to a stay, tried to get a larger room but the staff was not very accomadating. Have been... More

Hilton Galveston was very underwhelming...not what we expected for a full service Hilton that advertised the hotel to be a resort...the rooms were small and old...the pool side balcony had not been cleaned when we arrived (there were beer cans and garbage from previous guests on the balcony)...the air conditioning unit was antiquated...it was loud and never actually turned off...

Our family of four stayed at the Hilton Galveston resort in July for the first time. It is in the middle of the action, close to all major attractions. The rooms were large and clean and the food in the restaurant was delicious! The pool was also refreshing!

Yes, the hotel is very pretty! However, lack of complimentary wifi in your room is ludicrous! The a/c system is terrible and look at your vent in the restroom! Wish I could attach the picture I took! NASTY! Never cleaned!! Will not go here again! Cleanliness I'm giving average b/c everything else was clean for the most part.

Seriously, the staff is wonderful, but the hotel itself and the hilton policies need to be bulldozed and built from the ground up again. No free wifi except in lobby, which was a massive deal breaker. I was there for business and that meant I needed to work after the conference was over during the day. Instead of working in... More

My wife and I had a chance for a weekend getaway with no kids! I booked a Deluxe King Gulfview with balcony. The first issue was that there was no balcony like in the description. Then came the game changer...my wife stated that she smelled something...she proceeded to smell a large red spot on the carpet in front of the... More

My aunt and I read the previous review when we were planning our short getaway and was a little nervous about staying at the Hilton Galveston. We are so glad we gave this hotel a chance. When we arrived at the hotel Ross and Jason were the valets and they were so courteous and accommodating. Then we went to the... More
