Double Tree Hotel in Galveston

This was an absolute wonderful place to stay and spend my 50th Birthday! The hotel staff was incredible and the shuttle services they offer were a huge benefit for hopping around the island night life. Kudos to Zack, our shuttle driver along with everyone else. The room was artfully decorated....Love the renovation they have done. Room service was excellent and we were more than pleased with our food order. Outside bar was a blast. We will definitely stay here again.

Under Construction

This hotel is undergoing a complete renovation and the lobby area quite bare. The room I stayed in had been completely redone but the hallway was lacking carpet. A simple continental breakfast was provided but their were only a few seats in the lobby and workmen were constantly coming and going. When renovations are complete, it will probably be a very nice place to stay. Staff was helpful and apologetic for the mess.

selabrating 31 years of marrage

It would have been nice to know that they was remodeling the hotel, and the new look of the rooms was quit shocking and not my tast, but it was an ok stay after it was all said and done. I would stay there agen, the orange refrigerater kinda grew on me.

Christmas at the Beach

We stayed over the Christmas Holiday at the Galveston Beach Hotel and loved it. One caveat, they were in the middle of reservations, and are turning into a Double Tree by Hilton, so there was some construction going on and not all the amenities (such as the fitness room) were available. However, despite that, the experience was still great. The staff was very courteous and attentive and the rooms were very clean and nice. They put us in a newly renovated room and you could still smell the fresh paint. All the rooms are beachfront as well, so that's definitely a plus. The location is great too. Walking distance to Pleasure Pier and a short drive to most other attractions. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Location

Pretty nice rooms. Great Food! A little on the expensive side. Like that the hotel is not big and that rooms are ocean view. Swim up bar nice but not worth it!!! No one supposedly is supposed to bring any drinks to pool area. Not even water. They will take it from you, even if you bought it in their vending machine. We were told if pool has a swim up bar, it is considered a bar area too and is regulated by TABC rules. There were 14 of us so we had several rooms. A couple of us like drinks not offered in the bar so we would have to go back to our room when we wanted a drink. No cooler in area even if not drinking from it. Can not use it to sit on. We were told by the manager that signs are posted everywhere to this effect. We did not find one. Right after we were told no drinks of Any kind from the outside allowed in, the staff poured a couple that walked in with drinks - in plastic cups. What we are 14 and they are two. We are all older and were not a rowdy group. Just something to think about if you plan on spending any time at the pool. Very strict policy and they will watch you like a hawk. Besides that staff is pretty friendly. None of my group recommends staying here and we will not again.
