Stayed here the night prior to our family departing on a cruise. Hotel was right across from the beach. Also near to shopping and restaurants. If we were planning on staying for a week or so I would stay here again. The rooms could use some updating but overall the beds were comfortable and clean.

We have stayed at the Hilton Galveston Island two different times this year. The property and staff never fail to impress us. I have two boys that just love the pool and the activities facilitated by the staff. They have a kids' activity cabana with board games and craft supplies, and they will play water balloon and diving games with...

I've stayed at this Hilton numerous times and I've always felt very well taken care of by the staff. This trip was exceptionally good, with the friendliness of the staff and particularly the ladies in the restaurant. I'll be back!

Although we have attended our conference in this location for several years this hotel in proximity to the convention center is perfect. There is enough items nearby for convenience as well. The staff is very attentive to your every need and Summer specifically ensured that I had an enjoyable stay with ample supplies for my coffee in the morning.

Great hotel for family's or a weekend escape. On a busy holiday weekend Barbara was amazing and made our short trip one to remember! The cabana rental was awesome and the pool with swim up bar is great! These kids also loved the waterfalls and Easter egg hunt. Thanks Barbara and Hilton!

We are diamond members with Hilton, so we have seen a lot. This property has great service and a great pool. The executive lounge is vastly UNDERstocked compared to most. And we don't care for the busyness of the location right on the Seawall. The traffic inside and outside the hotel is crazy. Feels too busy, but they can't help...

nice room interior and lobby as well as conference center. My only complaint lies in the shower. Ceiling over the shower was peeling and the water did not drain very fast. from the time I turned on the shower to the time I stepped in, I was standing in water while showering. But no issues other than that.

Our conference has been held here for several years now. I love the proximity to the convention center and the friendliness of the staff. Summer (housekeeper for the 4th floor) was very friendly and gave me some extra sugar and creamer to have in my room. When my coffeepot did not work, I was promptly brought another as well. I...
