From the moment you walk in you feel at home! The front desk staff is very friendly, this includes the housekeeping and maintenance staff. Eager to assist in any way. The unit we stayed in, 906, always feels inviting and cozy! There was little sign of seaweed, which seemed to be the big news story for Galveston this year. This... More

I am here at the Galvestonian as we speak and I absolutely do not have one bad thing to say! Well, let me take that back. In a few days I have to go home! SMH. The staff is wonderful and friendly and there is someone always at the desk to greet you as you come and go. We are... More

I rented a 2 BR on the 12th floor for my birthday getaway. Absolutely love this place. Front desk staff is wonderful, my condo was perfect. I will never stay anywhere else. First day there (my birthday) a rainbow appeared over the water. Standing in the balcony it looked like you could almost touch it. Clean beach, wonderful pool, great... More

This is the second time for me at the Galvestonian and it was spot on. We rented a 2/2 (#1002) this time and it was spotless, nicely decorated and had a great blender! Linens and beds were comfy and flat screens in each room. Enjoyed the wonderful sunrises and sunsets from the balcony. We chose a room with 4 chairs... More

We had a blast at our family gathering for Labor Day weekend at the Galvestonian. We enjoyed walks on the beach and time in the pool and hot tub. Walking on the beach is great exercise and the water is fantastic this time of year. The sunrises and sunsets are stunning.

I just completed a 3 day stay at The Galvestonian. It was amazing! The staff were all helpful and friendly, the pool beautiful, and the beach clean and relaxing. We stayed in a corner room on one of the upper floors and we had vistas of the beach and from the west, could see all the way to the Moody... More

We stayed in condo 1015 for Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed the condo. It had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths (3 baths would have been nice but I wouldn't trade it for the view!). One bedroom had a king with ensuite with tub/shower; and one had twin beds. Both had a tiny balcony overlooking the marsh/port side. The third... More

This was my first trip to Galveston in many many years and I was delighted my group chose this beautiful property for us to stay. There were about 28 of us on the 12th floor and it was perfect. Every room I visited was very well decorated and clean and they all had gorgeous views of a pristine beach that... More

My two sisters and I had a great sisters getaway this past weekend at The Galvestonian. The condo was perfect....beautifully decorated, clean, well-stocked kitchen, balcony looking out over the ybeach.....I could go on and on. After going into town and seeing the crowds, we felt so spoiled coming back to the peace and quiet of our hotel. The pool and... More

Our first stay here was ideal. After Labor Day so very very quiet, the beach was deserted and peaceful. The entire staff was friendly and the maid service excellent. I would have appreciated a door for handicapped at the entrance but that was minor. Everything you might want to do is close by. Will definitely stay here again.
