We are Houstonians with four very busy children & one grandchild ... It is not often that we get an actual vacation ... Most of our vacations include an activity with one of out children like basketball & cheer. We have been to Galveston for cheer competitions ... We have stayed at nearly every large hotel on the island; moody gardens, San Luis, the galvez, and many of the smaller budget hotels... We will be Hilton loyal guests for life after our last few visits. Close to things the kids love to do, amazing views of the ocean, heated pool every day of the year... Kids eat free breakfast buffet in the morning are just a few of the amenities that come with the stay... However, hands down the staff is AMAZING there have been very few turn overs in the past few years so we are greeted by familiar faces throughout the stay from valet, check in, maids, bar staff, maintenance, etc. Kelly in the hotel restaurant has been here for at least a year now, her service never ceases to amaze me... With a kids eat free buffet you can imagine how busy the breakfasts are in the morning but Kelly serves, waits, cleans tables, juggles tough orders & even tougher customers with a smile on her face & the master of a professional juggler... That in and of its self would be enough to impress me as someone who was in the service industry for two decades my expectations are higher than most and I am usually disappointed as good service is tough to come by these days ... Kelly however exceeded all of my expectations as she not only served with a smile she greeted me by name after a year AND she remembered my order to the "T" from a year ago! Hands down the not just the best hotel experience but the best restaurant experience we have had in many years... The Hilton is the equivalent of staying at a five star resort for reasonable hotel prices ... Great job Kelly & kudos to the rest of the staff!
