We are retired New England seniors who like to travel and had never been to Texas. We stayed 3 nights at the Galvestonian. The staff were all great. The unit was spotless, the bed comfortable and not many other units were occuied during this off season period. We had a unit on the 12th floor. We thought this Galveston trip would be a one time thing but are now considering returning next year. The area is quite different from the typical Galveston hotel which is likely to be found on the densely occupied Seawall Blvd. A detriment is that there are no restaurants in walking distance except for one, open only Thursday through Sunday. Also, the shower water temperature fluctuated. Neither of these issues would have me change my 5 star rating. Worth noting is that during our trip through Texas, we found everyone we encountered to be friendly and helpful.

- The Galvestonian is designed for pleasure and relaxation. For outdoor fun, the large heated swimming pool, which features a hot-tub Jacuzzi, is elevated on a deck which runs almost the entire length of the building. This affords the privacy you deserve, plus a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. The spacious poolside cabana is quiet, shaded area for enjoying pool side refreshments. For tennis buffs, there are two lighted courts. And, of course, there are miles of beach a few steps down from the pool deck. You can stroll along the water's edge, build sand castles or simply relax on the sand and let the sun's golden rays warm your body.East Beach is the most exclusive beach in Texas.
