We recently visited Moody Gardens during the Christmas season. The hotel was decorated beautifully for the holidays. Hot wassail was served in the lobby and s'mores were available for the kids at the fire pit near the pool. The hotel always has a ton of family friendly events that are suitable for all ages. The Festival of Lights is located... More

Nice rooms that finally got renovated. Service very nice, bell station extremely helpful. Restaurant in hotel was pretty good - breakfast buffet better than dinner. Wait staff are VERY nice with large groups. Hotel activities with holiday season was really nice - decorated lobby, elf on shelf, s'mores outside and other stuff. Pool is gorgeous even though we didn't get... More

We reserved the room on the line and it was a good choice. The view was as promised and the room was quiet. Only problem was that they did not honored the promise of $10 discount if I have AAA membership.

Purchased a package for a hotel stay which included tickets to Iceland and Festival of Lights. The reservation process online specifies that if you pay $100 extra, you can check in at noon. Otherwise you must wait until 4pm. We opted to wait until 4pm. Stood in line for at least 45 minutes to check in, got to the room... More

The rooms were clean, and spacious. White comforters, four pillows per bed, abundance of blankets, private A/C that works very well. The satellite tv (flat screen about 42") was spotty, with the sound going out periodically, but it wasn't important. There was a holiday event that caused a 20 minute delay in getting in. There's on-site dining in a casual... More

Company Christmas Party on 12/13/14 had loads of fun. Festival of Lights so much better than in years past. The hotel is really nice it was so easy to get lost. I was not in a Christmasy mood until I went to Moody Gardens now I'm ready to celebrate the holidays. It can get very crowded both in the Hotel... More

Visited everything. Ice sculpture exhibit was fantastic. Maybe next year the theme will be a bit modern. Amazing ice slide! I would go... More
