“Seeking Sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was a last minute trip aimed towards good weather and sunshine. We found sun and a nice place to stay, even during spring break week. This is a "new" property on the Gulf. It is completely remodeled with cool, retro furnishings, good beach location, friendly staff and all the typical Doubletree amenities. A very fun, unexpected treat was the free use of hotel bikes. In Galveston this is an awesome bonus. We also tried the Longboard Bar. It was ok, drinks are available poolside or street side, in small plastic cups, either way, but were a little expensive. Overall, a great stay.

Me and my 2 kids (12 and 13) stayed here for part of Spring Break 2015. We checked in very late at night after driving over 4 hours. The evening shift was VERY friendly and accommodating and welcomed us as if it was the middle of the day. Nothing was too much for the staff at this hotel. It didn't matter how many times we called (and we called down to the front desk A LOT!) or what we requests we made, they responded positively and with a great attitude. John and Forest at the front desk were awesome! The guy in the restaurant was a pure gem -- he even took our smelly shrimp bait that my young son brought back to the hotel from our fishing trip and disposed of it for me. The location was great and we absolutely loved the FREE bikes that we rode all day along the beach! This hotel was recently remodeled and purchased by Hilton. The room was clean and a nice size for 3 people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back in the summer! All around a great place to stay on Galveston Beach.

Room Tip: Higher floors have best beach views. I was in a "premium" beach view and had full view of...

The hotel is in the best location of any on the main seawall strip, Galveston beach. One of the few that have ocean facing balconies with a clear view of the ocean. Very close to the main restaurants and shops as well as Pleasure Pier. One major benefit is the bar and grill with swim up bar at the hotel. Room is spacious and clean with Doubletrees popular luxury beds. Internet connection is decent, I was able to stream movies. Negative aspects: not allowed to swim at beach section in front of hotel(only have to walk down the beach a little ways to swim). Main busy road runs between hotel and beach(the same for all hotels on seawall). Eating at the hotel is very expensive.

I only stayed here one night but what a great experience. The staff was outstanding, the view was awesome (right on the seawall), and the bar/pool was very relaxing. Pleasure Pier is within walking distance but they have a shuttle if the walk is too far for some. A+++

Room Tip: All room face the beach so get the one on the highest floor possible.

EXCELLENT location! EXCELLENT service! EXCELLENT staff! No problems whatsoever. Very accommodating on all levels. Stayed on a weekend and totally expected may have noise but didn't bother at all. Parking in the back of hotel well worth the parking fee. This is the place to stay if you get the opportunity!

The location of this establishment is perfect for being on the beach to visiting Moody Gardens. We had a problem with the A/C and they took care of it right away. Staff was friendly, the poolside bar was nice and the room was nice and cozy. We will come back.

Room Tip: Easily accessible parking area.

The good: Rooms are clean and updated, balconies on rooms are nice for the ocean views across the street. The bad: Parking is 'valet' park yourself for $10 in the back lot, where the doors are locked, so you must lug your things down the street and to the front door. The breakfast is not continental, though the food quality is, definitely not worth $20 a person. Lastly, the staff is up to par with a $39 a night roadside motel. Why doesn't Galveston have any great hotels!?
