The property itself is older, but updated. The rooms were standard. My a/c cooled the room well. There is a small dining area in the lobby, but no restaurant onsite (Landrys is in the parking lot). There was plenty of self parking so no need to valet. The hotel is within steps of the convention center.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 January 2017 via mobile

We only stayed one night here, wish we had been able to stay longer. Beautiful hotel and very helpful staff! We had an awesome view of the ocean from our balcony and watched the parade going on down on Seawall Blvd from our room. Planning on a return visit that will be much longer!

During a recent stay, my daughter left her watch on the nightstand when checking out. Came back to the hotel, housekeeping had already cleaned the room and the watch was gone. It was her fault for leaving the watch, but the service from the housekeeping manager, Ms Angie, was poor, and rude. She was made to feel like she was...

The location of this hotel is perfect. Close to the beach, within walking distance. The breakfast was expensive if you wanted anything other than toast but there are several places to eat next door. The staff are very helpful and courteous. The pool was really nice and hot tub average but it won't stop us from coming back sooner than...

Do not stay here. Rooms are old, A/C is loud and they will DOUBLE CHARGE you. Staff is nice and helpful. But management is horrible. They are very rehearsed in their policies...but having ran businesses for the last 32 years...You have to have a solution to the problem. Not these Hilton managers. Sorry that is our policy is all they...

I've stayed here twice because it was very conveniently located to a gymnastics event at the convention center. The first time, I was in the newer part of the hotel. I had a wonderful experience without any issues. Everything was excellent! The second time, I was in the older part of the hotel. I had problems with slow drains in...

My wife and I stayed at the Hilton Galveston this past weekend as we were in town for her to run in a half-marathon on Sunday. I must commend the politeness, the cheerfulness, and helpfulness of all the staff at this hotel!

The hotel itself is very large. Located right next to the Convention center and directly across the street from the ocean on Seawall Blvd. Beautiful views. The pool was extremely nice. Seasonally heated the temp I was told was between (82-84 degrees). The jacuzzi and sauna were equally as nice. There is a fitness center but I didn't use it....

The hotel in itself is ok. Clean, good amenities, staff is polite and helpful. However, it's too little for a Hilton hotel with a US 300$ bill every night. The hotel is located 15 minutes away (in car) from downtown. The rooms are old and quickly need to be refurbished. The restaurant is located in the center of the hall...

We usually stay at the San Luis resort next door but they were booked. Next time we'll stay at San Luis or skip the trip. The balcony was tiny and dirty. The air conditioner was loud and we couldn't get the temp adjusted. So disappointed especially as a Hilton Honors member.
