My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights before our cruise. We had flown into Houston and took Galveston Express to the hotel. If you drive to the hotel they do have an option to park your car for free while you are on the cruise. They then shuttle you to the pier which is very convenient....

This hotel doesn't measure up to the standard I would expect for a Hilton. Neighboring room service dishes sat in the hallway for 24 hours, carts with dirty clothes in the hall for 12+ hours, etc. Mediocre at best.

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!

Patty the hostess was very informative. She explained history of Galveston area. She was very helpful and we had the best time visiting with her. She kept everything nice and clean. Also our room was nice and comfy. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at the Hilton due to our ship being fogged in. We had a great time with Patty in the Excutive lounge. She is the best! Nice rooms and friendly people all around. The staff was all friendly and the location was very convenient to local dining and cocktails.

The whole experience was positive, from the time we arrived until the time we left. The restaurant served excellent meals, and all the staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was immaculate, with a Gulf view from our 7th floor room.

We stayed there one night before a cruise with a group of 10 people (5 rooms). The staff was very accommodating and professional. The rooms were clean, although not as updated as some Hilton properties. Several reviewers have noted you need to make shuttle reservations in advance, and we confirm that. I didn't realize that when I booked, and when...
