“Pre cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I can't say enough about this place. Clean, new decor, central location, good food and good service, all the things a traveler likes to enjoy for their hard earned money spent. However that's not what is so awesome about our stay. It's been the people that work here. From the front desk greeting, the maintenance guy that helped me get in the back door when lost my card and gave my son a cookie, the wait staff housekeeping- I do mean every single person we encountered were happy helpful and all around pleasant and patient with our multiple special requests. I will definitely be back!!!!! Great job and a standing ovation from the Parkers!

We stayed at this newly remodeled and completely renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel this last weekend, February 20-21, 2015. This used to be the Galveston Beach Hotel, but forget everything about that place, except the fantastic location. Yes, everything is new, bright and shiny, but my impression of the new management group and Hilton affiliation, is, I think it will stay that way for a long time. This hotel does have a boutique hotel type atmoshere. The rooms are cute, "mod", and bright! Great walk-in shower, comfortable bed and bedding, electrical outlets on both end tables and desk, Kuerig coffee maker, a Smeg 50's style mini-fridge and ocean front view, all add up to a fun, comfortable experience.
The hotel has some complimentary extras worth mentioning. First, fresh chocolate chip cookies upon check in (and other times too if you ask...shhh), complimentary wi-fi, shuttle service to almost everywhere on the island. We took it to the Strand and back ,and to a couple of restaurants. They even have cruiser bicycles to ride up and down the Seawall!
It was too chilly for the pool, but the pool area is cool and tropical Longboard's is the pool bar, where we did enjoy cocktails facing the ocean! Check out the pics here on Trip Advisor- they are accurate!
Last but not least, the staff was wonderful and attentive. Brandy at the front desk was very friendly, as was the bellman/driver Zach. He can recommend restaurants for you if you need! I recommend this hotel for couple and families! We can't wait to go back when the weather is a little warmer!!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, but the higher the better; 4th or 5th floor.

We checked in on February 28 ,2015 for our Anniversary. We spend just that one night and it was just wonderful. I did notice a slight paint smell upon entering the room at check in but after a while it was gone.We really enjoyed our stay and most def will return.I was really happy with all the services they had to offer very helpful in all ways. Oh and those cookies at check in are so good we loved them. I'm looking forward to our next visit. This place was perfect in every way :)

We had a great experience at the all new DoubleTree by Hilton Galveston Beach (formerly called Galveston Beach Hotel). The total remodel was just completed and the new DoubleTree brand adopted two days before our visit. It is a totally modern boutique style hotel on Galveston Island, located very close to the Strand district. All of the staff was very friendly and attentive, from the door man, shuttle driver, front desk attendants, restaurant manager, bartender, etc. I have stayed at several other Galveston hotels in the last few years and I like this the best. All of the rooms face the ocean, so you wake up to a beautiful view.

This wasn't just a remodel where they paint the walls and doors, replace carpet, refinish tub. It has a really cool walk in shower with sliding glass doors. All rooms have Kuerig coffee makers and balconies with two chairs.

Room Tip: The hotel is 5 floors; I recommend 4th or 5th floor rooms.
