“Band new! Friendly staff!”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

Really nice pool to relax by with cabanas, pool bar and food! Heather kept us refreshed with cool drinks. The pool is shared with The Courtyard by Marriott and a Starbucks Bistro is on location.

Our room was a king suite with full kitchen, dishes, etc. Brand new. You can still smell the paint drying. Comfortable beds fluffy towels and large desk/work station.

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. David waited and chatted to us for the complimentary shuttle to arrive and take us downtown for supper. While on our drive downtown, we were treated to an impromptu historical tour by the driver, David. With his charming jokes and amazing singing voice we were just totally impressed. Nate and Cody, who checked us in at arrival, never seemed to leave. Always there to answer any questions we had. Great value, super property, not close to the hassle and bustle of downtown, but in every sense of the word, a little piece of paradise!

We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway to Galveston, but we don't want it to become too popular, that we can't get a room next time we come back. And we expect to come back!

Stayed April 2013, travelled as a couple

Reviewed 7 April 2013

We were looking for a place to stay overnight in Galveston while we visited Moody Gardens. This hotel was brand new having only been opened for 3 months. The hotel was not right on the seawall but behind another Marriott hotel. There was a lovely pool area in the middle which was shared by the 2 hotels. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had a view of the Gulf of Mexico and the pool area. The suite had a nice kitchen with a large refrigerator, a stove, a microwave, and a dishwasher. The living room was small with a table for 4 up against the kitchen. There were 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds and each had their own full bathroom. A real plus since we were traveling with another couple. The living room and both bedrooms all had their own TVs.The beds and bedding were wonderful and the hotel was very quiet during the night. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The ones we came in contact with went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our visit. The lobby area had an area where you could buy snacks and drinks if you wanted. The continental breakfast in the morning consisted of coffee,juice,cereal,oatmeal,bananas,yogurt,and muffins.
The only downside was the traffic on the seawall in the morning was noisy even though the hotel was away from the road.
We had a nice stay here however, and I would reccommend it to anyone visiting Galveston.

Room Tip: Rooms away from facing the Gulf of Mexico may be quieter in the morning
