I don't know about the shuttle but we've stayed at the Hilton in Galveston twice in the past few years and I don't recall ever paying for parking.

they did tell me that the shuttle is free, too! I noticed that the weekend I wanted was a 2 night minimum, though.

Yes, the Hilton does offer a cruise and park option. We are staying there the night before our cruise in November.
