Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island ★★★★

About


Located at 7010 Padre Boulevard in South Padre Island, and accessible through Port Isabel's Queen Isabella causeway, the Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island is the official conference hotel. Some of the hotel's features include comfortable and spacious rooms, big balconies with great views, a fitness center, a huge outdoor pool just a few meters away from the ocean and a ballroom that can host up to 800 guests. Worth mentioning too is the hotel's great location, since it is situated near several attractions, such as Clayton's, the biggest beach bar in all of Texas, the Sea Turtle Inc, Kiteboarding, the Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark, the Osprey Cruises, and the island's Birding and Nature Center, among others.

Transportation


The closest airport to the hotel is the Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport (BRO), which is about 40 minutes away from the island. There are three simple options for getting to the hotel from the airport and vice-versa:

  • Take a free shuttle from the airport to Port Isabel. Once in Port Isabel you can take the WAVE (South Padre Island's free shuttle), just don't forget to tell the driver of the WAVE that you're going to the Hilton Garden Inn. Please note that the last shuttle leaves the airport at 8:00 PM.
  • Rent a car and follow these directions:

        Car rental agencies can be found next to the airport's baggage claim, including Hertz, Budget,               National Car Rental and Enterprise.


  • Take a taxi. Good option if your flight arrived late at night and you are too tired to drive. Taxis can be easily found when exiting the airport. Prices range from $75 and up.

Please note that there are two other airports that are relatively near the hotel, the Valley International Airport (HRL) and the McAllen International Airport (MFE). The Valley International Airport is about one hour away from the Hotel, while the McAllen International Airport is approximately one and a half hour away.
