Very nice suite hotel close to beach, Galleria mall and intra coastal canal. No need for rental car. Five minute walk to beach and Galleria Mall. Nice area on beach with a couple of shops and bars. Not too many. The mall is a bit upscale but has a good varirty of stores including Macy's and Dillard's. Our room had a view of the draw bridge and we found it interesting. Noise from bridge and traffic was minimal. Hotel service was good. Restaurant service was good and food tasty. Breakfast buffet was good but monotonous and about 20.00 which is about norm for Hilton. Could easily walk to mall to eat. At night there was a "golf cart" giving rides in the area for 2 or 3 dollars if you did n't want to walk. The Sun trolley passed out side hotel as well. The water taxi was interesting and fun. I would do it once and definitely not as a means of transportation. It takes long to and from destinations and it appears that there are different routes - some go downtown and some go to Gallery One when you are returning. If time is important jump in a taxi.
I would stay here again.
