Full time business traveler: I will start off with saying I like this hotel. It is directly across the street from the beach (it is along the street that runs a long way directly adjacent to the beach). From my balcony I overlooked the pool/hot tub, It looked very nice - very much a beach resort type, lush, large pool area. We didn't get a chance to use it as the weather was as cold as it probably ever gets in Galveston yet I still admired it from my vantage point.
Parking was ample. While I didn't end up using Valet the valet staff was super friendly. The front desk area is nice, not opulent, but nice. The front desk staff was also super friendly. The bellman was friendly and helpful..
The room itself was quite nice, relatively spacious for this type/location hotel, very comfy bed, good video/audio (not a lot of channels though), good shower (bathroom is small-ish), internet was at best ok though, decor and feel to it was quite good. I enjoyed and recommend having opting for a balcony room (even with cooler weather) and it was interesting to see the building across the parking lot doing its fire eruption in the evening.
My one experience I would say that was not above average was a dessert order to go in the restaurant. Not bad but response was not what i would consider warm and friendly, however, it wasn't something that was off putting either (probably shouldn't even mention it).
There are lots of food options along the street the Hilton is on (you will definitely not lack for good choices to eat) as well as many close options for market place items.
I definitely recommend this hotel for a nice stay across from the beach with a very nice pool offering, friendly staff, comfy rooms.
