“Wow! It doesn’t get much better than this!!!!”
Reviewed February 7, 2005

I stayed at the Hilton in Galveston for two nights before I went on a cruise. I stay in a hotel approximately 20 to 30 days a year and as an experienced traveler I can say that the service at this Hilton is second to none! I was happy to find out that the Hilton offers a shuttle service to take you to and from the pier, and they gladly let you park your car in their lot while you’re on your cruise (for FREE!!). Everyone from the bellboy to the waiter at the bar was cheerful and responsive to any need you may have. With their great pool and location close to restaurants and beach this hotel is ideal for family, couples, or business travelers. I will definitely be staying here again on my next cruise trip to Galveston!!

Stayed for two nights on the New Year's weekend prior to a cruise departure on Sunday. We found the hotel to be quite pleasant, the pool was fun -- even though the weather was not the most agreeable -- they kept the heat cranked in the pool and hot tub. Hotel staff were extemely friendly and accomodating. Not a cranky person in the place, which was amazing considering it was probably the busiest weekend of the year for them and I am sure they had more than a few drunks to deal with. Even on New Year's day when the staff had to clean up from the night before they seemed cheerful and joking about the mountains of laundry they were carting every - which -way. We took advantage of their extended parking for the cruise and that went without a hitch -- they even paged us when they found out our ship was boarding earlier than expected due to fog delays! The hotel is in a good location close to lots of restaurants (Landry's was fantastic!), it really was a wonderful place and a bargain considering the amenities and location -- now if only our cruise had been as pleasant as our stay at the Hilton .... but that's another review for another site ....

We'd definately stay there again.

Excellent location, in the 'complex' with the new Galveston convention center, the San Luis Resort, Holiday Inn, Landry's Seafood, Rainforest Cafe, IHOP; right across Seawall Blvd. from the beach. Large 'swim around' pool with center bar. Big rooms, clean, efficient full service hotel, typical of Hilton. Hotel rooms with balconies overlook the Gulf - nice view, excellent sea breeze. Great place to stage from to walk, bike or drive to other Galveston attractions.
