This hotel is very well located; immediately adjacent to numerous tourist attractions and the frequent cruise ships. There are a few restaurants for lunch and dinner. The price of the hotel includes a continental breakfast and it is the biggest disappointment. They serve Starbucks coffee (there is a Starbucks across the street) BUT the worst selection of baked goods and cereals I have ever seen. Skip it and walk across the street to Starbucks. Or better yet walk the few blocks to the excellent bistro in Tremont House.
The lobby is smaller than tiny BUT the staff works very hard at being pleasant and helpful. I have found it rare at this level hotel for them to remember your name each time you pass through. I expect that, and don't often get it, at 5 star properties.
Large rooms with very comfortable and beachy themed appointments. The beds are truly heavenly and you will get a good nights sleep.
Ask for rooms on north side of hotel that points toward Galveston bay .. The views are better.
The bathroom shows it's age and is as tiny as the room is large.
There is a coffee maker in the room but in our case it had not been cleaned and the only coffee packets were decaf so don't wait for the morning to check.
Our rate was $229 during a spring break weekend .. probably not a bad deal if you wish to be close to cruise line but otherwise it is not a good value.
