The Galvestonian has the best service desk you will ever come to know. No matter the time, in person, or on the phone, you will always get the nicest people and the best service. We have stayed there three years in a row, and will not go anywhere else. The rooms and view are comparable to other places, though you... More

I made the decision to stay here instead of near the convention center for a three-day business trip and I couldn't have been happier. The front desk staff was very friendly and explained all of the little perks and features of the property upon our arrival. The view from the room was great (1212) and the shape of the building...

A beautiful, spacious and very comfortable 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo with amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico. The attention to details and design were delightful. The fully stocked kitchen with every size pot or pan and the many well working appliances made this condo a pleasure to cook in and enjoy family dinners around a great round table.... More

We spent a long weekend at our old favorite, the Galvestonian, and were quickly reminded why it's our favorite. The staff is incredible without being intrusive, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the weather, which of course the staff controlled, was impeccable.

Very well appointed condo. Gulf view, heated pool and spa a stones through from the beach. I highly recommend this rental property. Management is very friendly, and go overboard to assist in helping with directions to places of interest. Not sure where to go for dreakfast, lunch, or dinner? Not to worry, a complete list of establishments to choose from... More

We really enjoyed our time here. The welcome was warm and the staff were faultless. We were very impressed with our room, it was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The bed was very clean and comfortable, I am extremely fussy when it comes to beds. The pool was beautifully clean. Absolutely no music is allowed around the pool area... More

We just spent a nice weekend in Galveston at The Galvestonian. It was recommended by some neighbors as they stay there often. We loved the fact that it was on the more quiet east end of the island and it was literally right on the beach. The beach was beautifully maintained there so was a pleasure to walk on. The... More

We stayed in #1215 which was a three bedroom condo. We had traveled all day and came in very late so the cheerful beach theme in the condo was a welcome sight. The kitchen had the nicest appliances and cookware I have ever seen in a rental. Being an end unit on the top floor, there were balcony views on... More

Although the weather was very foggy, the condo was superb! In fact the foggy weather made the stay even more relaxing. We stayed in a 1 bedroom, room 407. The decor was up to date and very appealing. The bed was also quite comfy. The best experience was the awesome hot tub that spilled over into the warm water pool.... More
