My sister and I are taking our parents on a cruise for their 60th wedding anniversary. Six members of our family will be flying into Houston on June 16, 2007 on separate flights and leaving on a cruise out of Galveston June 17th. We were thinking of staying at the Country Inn & Suites or the SpringHill Suites by the Hobby Airport and then driving down to Galveston the next morning. We will have two Sr Citizens, 3 adults and 1 16 year old.
Is it possible to get a suite that would sleep 6 or will we have to take two rooms? With the hotels being close to Hobby airport, what kind of air traffic noise do guests experience?
From looking at transportation options, it seems that two one-way rentals (van) would be cheaper and more flexible than limo or shuttle services. Is there a better idea?
