My wife and I were celebrating my birthday. We were able to walk to restaurants in the area. Also the beach was just across the street. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. We truly had a great stay.

The heating/ac in room was extremely noisy which made it difficult to sleep. Service at front desk was mediocre, they were not able to change rooms or offer anything, they could have at least offered points or breakfast voucher. I was there for work and multiple colleagues complained of the same issue.

This is the first time I stayed at the Hilton in Galveston, Texas. Apparently it has been updated recently. The staff, the hotel were great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I travel 50+% of the time and I am picky.
