While looking for hotels in Galveston, we came across The Galvestonian. Not really a hotel but nothing less than a 4-5 star.
The property itself is a little far from the seawall drive which for me is the best point of this hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and take every opportunity to help the guests. We had the pleasure of spending three days at this property and it made for a wonderful trip.
Now the room, I stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was lavishly furnished, once of the best decor I had seen. The bathrooms were a little small but the kitchen and room had every thing we needed.
The grounds and the property were very nice and well maintained, the pool is excellent. There are cycles to rent and a very nice little town to take a walk in.
Overall I have to stay that I agree with most of the reviewers that it is the best property to stay in Galveston.
