“At the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I chose this hotel because I read where it had only been open for several months after a complete overhaul and was now a Doubletree. The first room we were in was not up to Hilton standards - the carpet was dirty in more than several spots. The second room was much better - kind of trendy decor - with even a better view - yet the gulf was really muddy looking this week. Really nice bathroom with thick towels, very comfy bed, cute fridge, coffee maker and balcony overlooking the pool and gulf. Good chocolate chip cookies upon checking in but I still don't understand why they charge $10 to park in an unsecured lot with signs posted everywhere that they are not responsible for damages or losses. Enjoyed seeing all the huge ships lined up along the horizon both during the day and lit up at night.

Just returned home after a couple of nights at the DoubleTree. As a Hilton Honors Member, always enjoy the Hilton properties and this trip paid less for the room and used some of my points. The room's balcony faced the ocean, decent breakfast buffet and comfortable, informal pool bar with decent food. Good location and staff all very pleasant and accommodating.

Room Tip: Definitely request a room with full balcony view.

Nice hotel with retro fridge and fixtures in the rooms, comfy bed, wonderful breakfast buffet in the hotel and nice pool bar. We had a balcony overlooking the ocean and pool bar. Bands nightly at the pool bar. We will return.

Rooms are overpriced. Carpeting in room was filthy and room in need of upkeep. Room service food quality mediocre at best and overpriced. Some front desk staff not helpful or approachable. This is not the typical experience we have had with Hilton Hotels and were very disappointed, especially due to the price we paid for the room.

I was in Galveston recently to support a very ill loved one. The kindness and compassion shown by this front desk staff was practically overwhelming.

My room on the 3rd floor was extremely comfortable, and the decor was hip and clean ( I wish I had taken a picture of our bright orange SMEG mini-fridge ) All rooms face the Gulf and have balconies large enough for two, with chairs and a table.

The thatched roof bar in front of the pool has long been a favorite watering hole for local Islanders, and it features a swim-up bar as well.

We didn't try breakfast but there was complimentary coffee in the lobby and warm cookies were available just about anytime.

I really liked this place and cant wait to go back!

Room Tip: View from the third floor was great. We were down at the end of the hall.
